Really Direct TV? No channel 12?

A free local channel, which you absolutely promise you can deliver, you don't have?

Dbacks either get a local channel or end the blackout on MLB TV so I can finally end this

Yes, I was upset about the matter and posted the below on Thursday under Cord Cutters:



As I understand it, DirecTV is presently no longer carrying local channel 12 because of a dispute over retransmission fees.

I'm still getting most of the local Phoenix channels, except channel 12. I just noticed the change today.

Hope this matter gets resolved, but my concern is this could be a future issue with other local channels as well.

Here is a link DirecTV provided on that channel.

Can you get it over an antennae?

You should be able too if you live within antenna range. The issue appears to be a retransmission fee charged to DirecTV to carry the channel.

I have it on my $5 Peacock sub and my antenna

So Direct TV...these are the numbers.

Free TV Coyotes and Suns

Disney Bundle $15 all other hockey plus FX and Fox shows on Hulu plus Disney plus.

MLB TV Free. All other baseball but Dbacks and MLB TV

Max $15 All Discovery and HBO. Wife's murder shows.

Peacock $5 all NBC

Netflix $15 for apparently Stranger Things.

That's like $50 I already pay. I am paying $200 a month to watch the Dbacks at this point

Dbacks also likely to go the free tv route with bally giving up the rights.
