DirecTV, Sinclair Continue Retrans Talks

Feb. 28 deadline still looms
Publish date:

DirecTV and Sinclair Broadcast Group are continuing to talk
concerning retransmission consent agreements for stations in 47 markets across
the country, but while both sides are hopeful a deal can be reached, there is a
slight disconnect on how close they could be to an agreement.

Sinclair began if a deal isn't reached by Feb. 28. 
DirecTV at the time accused the broadcaster of trying to scare its customers.

In a statement early Wednesday, DirecTV said it is
continuing talks with Sinclair and was hopeful a deal could be reached by the
Thursday deadline.
