Shreveport Station in Retrans Squabble With DirecTV

KSLA/Channel 12/Shreveport is in a squabble with Direct TV.  Ah, that's right it's that time to renegotiate the retransmission fees.  In a video message on the station's website, KSLA and DirecTV have until August 31st to come to an agreement.  And then if an agreement isn't reached..that's right KSLA will pull the plug on the feed to DirecTV.

At KSLA, nothing is more important to us than providing the ArkLaTex with the very best in local news and weather, along with your favorite CBS programming.
In order to serve our viewers, KSLA has in place agreements with the cable and satellite companies that bring our station to your home. In fact, KSLA has such agreements in place with every TV provider in our area.
Raycom Media our parent company is currently negotiating in good faith with DirecTV. We will keep you updated here, on air and on the KSLA News 12 Facebook page as to our progress.

OMG, did we go through this like a year or two ago? I'm so ready to disconnect. And isn't DirecTV's local equipment based at KSLA?

Ditto on that 4:16pm. Local news is about 60% satellite service anyways with the extended time they have to fill. I can't remember the last time I sat through a local newscast and if I see any local news it's because of channel-surfing.

Local news on KSLA is really hard to take. There's just so much of "That's so Raven" and Doug "wanna be a comedian" Warner that I can take.........

Get out while you can folks. Automation is coming and, in most cases, will replace you before your retirement age arrives.It's management's dream.
