(WFRV) — Some viewers in Northeast Wisconsin woke-up Thursday, July 4, to find they were unable to access Local 5 on television.
The reason: Negotiations between our parent company – Nexstar Broadcast Group – and DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse abruptly removed WFRV Local 5 from its lineup. The action follows the company’s refusal to accept a Nexstar Broadcast Group offer to extend the now-expired agreement to allow for more time to negotiate.
The blackout affects customers of AT&T and DirecTV.
Most viewers can still receive our programming for free with an antenna.
Nexstar vows to continue talks and reach an agreement.
