How DirecTV Customers Can See CBS News Programming:
A business dispute took CBS out of the air for millions of satellite TV customers from DirecTV and AT&T U verses on Saturday.
CBS responded to satellite systems owned by AT&T in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and 14 other major cities across the United States. Both the television network and AT & T cast charges on each other because they did not agree on what CBS was paid for programming.
CBS said that while it did not want its customers caught in the middle, it is determined to fight for fair value. The network warned that the loss of CBS programming "can last a long time."
AT & T countered in a statement given to Variety that CBS is "a repetition of blackout offender" who has pulled the programming from other operators before to get their way.
Other affected cities are Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
