WSVN Still Fighting with DirectTV, but Subscribers Will Get to See American Idol and NFL
If you're a DirectTV subscriber in South Florida you haven't been able to see Fox since last weekend. That's because Sunbeam Television Corp., the owners of Fox affiliate WSVN, are locked in a battle with DirectTV over the amount of money the satellite provider pays the station. That means you may have missed some of the NFL playoffs and last night's American Idol premier.
"WSVN-TV is still negotiating with DirecTV, but we care about our viewers, and we want them to be able to watch this game, which will determine who goes to the Super Bowl," aid Robert Leider, WSVN's general manager, tells the AP .
