Nexstar Agreement

My Nexstar owned CBS affiliate WHNT is back on but it’s sister station WHDF, The CW channel, also owned and operated by Nexstar, is not. DTV customer service was no help, so does anyone know if this channel will be back on? There’s not even a placeholder channel on the guide for it like there was with WHNT.

Nexstar manages other channels owned by Mission and White Knight unknown if this agreement includes them.

Have you checked https://www.directv.com/tvpromise/ to see if there is any word on why?

Do a red button reset of your boxes as well as logging into your account to refresh authorizations. As the temporary return just happened, there might be some provisioning still. So hopefully within 24-48hrs they will be available.

this is the message I get from Directv. The station itself has responded saying it should be up so I think this is on DTV’s end.

With the announcement of the temporary return, I figured the finalization of the agreement would have taken longer. Now it is just provisioning each local affiliate station they own, so 24-48 hours should still be a reasonable timeline to expect.

I just hope any cost impact is minimal and when the new agreement ends this doesn't start all over again.

Any word if KTLA 5 in Los Angeles will be added to Directv Internet/Stream as a result of the new Directv Nexstar agreement?

Unknown if the agreement will add any additional channels. Those details tend not to get announced.
