7News Editorial: DirecTV negotiations

(Source KSWO) (Source KSWO)

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-  In my last message to the community, I made a commitment to keep DIRECTV viewers informed about ongoing negotiations to keep KSWO on their system.

We continue to work with them, but as of yet, they have not agreed to a fair deal to keep this channel on their lineup after August 31st.

It wouldn’t be the first time DIRECTV left their customers in the dark. In fact, since 2015, DIRECTV has dropped local channels from their line up to 14 times affecting millions of viewers.

We regret that DIRECTV keeps putting their subscribers in the middle of these negotiations. It should not be your problem. After all, you pay 100% of your bill every single month to DIRECTV. Why should you have to worry about losing KSWO?

We will continue to work to reach an agreement without interruption and continue to keep you the viewer informed. You can always locate information on this situation at ourlocalcommitment.com/kswo/. And remember you always have choices: we are free over the air, at KSWO.COM, our free news and weather apps, and also available through other local providers.

    That feel-good moment lightened the mood of an evening that otherwise had a lackluster feel and disappointed many with the lack of ethnic diversity among its winners.
