Nexstar stations blacked out on AT&T DirecTV and U-verse amid contract dispute

Some DirecTV and AT&T U-verse subscribers woke up Thursday to find they lost access to Nexstar stations.

More than 120 stations in 97 markets across the nation, which include ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliate stations, went dark at 11:59 p.m. local time July 3 after Nexstar and AT&T were unable to reach an agreement, both sides said in competing statements that each blame the other for the blackout.

“Nexstar has removed its channels from your lineup even though we offered Nexstar more money to keep them available to you,” AT&T said in its statement posted at https://tvpromise.att.com. “Nexstar simply said no and elected to remove them from your lineups instead, putting you in the middle of its negotiations.

According to Nexstar’s statement, AT&T “unilaterally dropped the network and local community programming” and refused to extend the existing distribution agreement to Aug. 2.
