Q: What is happening?
A: DIRECTV subscribers no longer have access to WHLT 22 station as of midnight CST on July 3, 2019. DIRECTV/AT&T U-verse has yet to reach a new distribution agreement to allow the cable television provider the right to continue to air your favorite new stories around this viewing area.
Q: What other programming could I miss?

A: No other cable or satellite company is affected; only DIRECTV/AT&T U-verse customers have had their favorite news, comedies, dramas, and sports taken away. Other providers are available including DISH (855-898-6730) and over-the-air with digital antenna.
Q: Are you still negotiating with DIRECTV and/or AT&T U-verse?
A: Yes. While the contract has expired, we remain available to reach a mutually agreeable agreement with DIRECTV/AT&T. We have been negotiating in good faith with DIRECTV/AT&T U-verse, proposing fair and reasonable terms for your local station.
