Editorial: DirecTv still doesn't have a contract with Raycom

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - WALB's carriage agreement with DIRECTV has been temporarily extended, ensuring you will continue to receive this channel through Tuesday, September 12th.

We have been working hard to stay on their system, but they've simply refused to a fair deal to continue carrying us. So in a few short hours…local DirecTv subscribers are in danger of a total blackout of their favorite local news, weather and ABC and NBC programming….including NFL and College Football.

Unfortunately, DIRECTV has shown time and again…it's willing to leave their customers in the dark.

Since 2015… DIRECTV has dropped local channels from their system 14 times …impacting millions of viewers….and it looks like they want to add our viewers to the list.

Remember you have choices: we are free over the air, at www.walb.com, our free news and weather apps, and also available through other local providers.

Please go HERE for continuing updates.
