Raycom Media Restores 43 Local Stations To DIRECTV Homes

Channels Already Beginning to Return into Customers’ Homes, Guaranteeing Saints, Browns and Other NFL Fans
Today’s Season Openers

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 7, 2014DIRECTV and Raycom Media have entered into a new agreement that will restore Raycom Media’s 43 local broadcast stations into DIRECTV customers’ homes immediately. The resolution guarantees New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and other NFL fans will see their home team’s opening games starting at 1 p.m. ET this afternoon. Terms were not disclosed.

“We thank all of our affected customers for their patience over these past several days and regret that Raycom and too many other broadcast stations are willing to resort to these contrived blackouts to antagonize the public rather than serve it,” said Dan York, chief content officer at DIRECTV.

“Broadcast station groups who ransom their content back into their communities at exorbitant fees deserve the scrutiny of the Federal Communications Commission and local Congressional representatives. Raycom's intentional recent black outs of DISH, Cox and now DIRECTV customers creates an even greater sense of urgency for lawmakers to review and overhaul this anti-consumer retransmission consent process once and for all.”
