ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM)-
Direct TV continues to black out WETM-18 on their service in the region. WETM-18 remains free over-the-air, and on all other local satellite and cable providers. Unfortunately, DIRECTV did not accept Nexstar’s offer for an extension to allow viewers continued access to WETM until a new agreement is reached. Contrary to AT&T/Direct TV’s public statements, Nexstar in no way pulled its stations or asked for their removal from Direct TV. Nexstar is also reiterating its offer of an unconditional extension of the existing distribution agreement for 30 days to restore the blacked-out programming to viewers and allow the parties to reach a new agreement.
If you’re affected by the blackout, you can contact DIRECTV at 855-567-1569 and tell them you want WETM back.
