Latest update on local ABC affiliates in Baton Rouge, La., and Harlingen-Brownsville, Tex.


Rest assured DIRECTV is working hard to ensure there’s no unnecessary disruption to ABC affiliate WBRZ serving Baton Rouge, LA and KRGV, serving Harlingen-Brownsville, TX.  DIRECTV must receive permission from the station’s owner, Louisiana Television, to offer WBRZ and KRGV to our local customers, but Louisiana Television is threatening to withhold that permission unless we commit families to paying nearly three times as much just to see the same over-the-air channel others can still receive for free.


DIRECTV still provides ABC affiliate WAPT to those living in Amite and Wilkinson counties in Baton Rouge, LA  enabling them to still see any ABC favorites on local channel 16.  If Louisiana Television were to blackout WBRZ viewers, customers in Amite and Wilkinson counties will not lose ABC programming.
