Q: What is happening?
A: DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse subscribers no longer have access to WTNH station as of midnight EST on July 4, 2019. DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse have
yet to reach a new distribution agreement to allow the cable television provider the right to continue to air your favorite new stories around the Hartford & New Haven area.
Q: What other programming could I miss?
A: You no longer have access to your local news, emergency service updates and your favorite shows such as the season finale of the Bachelorette, new seasons of The Good Doctor, American Idol and the final season of Modern Family.
Q: Where will WTNH programming still be available?
A: No other cable or satellite company is affected; only DIRECTV and 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 and AT&T. We have been negotiating in good faith with DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse, proposing fair and reasonable terms for your local WTNH station.
Q: What can I do about this situation?
A: You have choices. Call 800-288-2020 and demand they bring back your favorite local news source! You can also contact other local providers – including DISH (855-898-6730) – and switch to make sure you are treated fairly and get the programming you want.
