DIRECTV, Tribune and Customers Using Web and Twitter to Push for Resolution
Here are the sites I’ve found to be the most valuable though. As of this writing, there seems to be no resolution.
First off is DirecTV’s site “DIRECTV Promise To You – DIRECTV’s Customer Promise”
As of 12:25 pacific time this page http://directvpromise.com/tribune-broadcasting-negotiation/ still indicates “DIRECTV is in negotiations with Tribune Broadcasting, the owner and operator of television stations in 16 markets and WGN America, about how much of your bill is fair to pay for their programming.”
Their Twitter feed @DIRECTV seems quite busy today and @DIRECTV tweets are using the hashtag #TellTribune when responding to questions from customers about losing access.
Tribune’s site is www.telldirectv.com and in big red letters at the top they are saying –
Tribune Broadcasting has not reached an agreement or come to terms with DirecTV on any aspect of its contract, which expires at midnight tonight. Any statement by DirecTV to the contrary is inaccurate and misleading.
