DirecTV Could Lose 33 Local Stations In Retrans Battle With Hearst

DirecTV customers may lose access to 33 channels this weekend if the company can't reach a new programming agreement with Hearst Television Inc. Hearst provides local broadcasting options across more than two dozen markets, which may be pulled offline if a deal isn't struck before the new year.

"While we believe that we and DIRECTV can conclude our negotiations before January 1, so as not to deprive any of our respective viewers and customers of our programming, we want to advise our viewers and customers that the possibility of non-renewal of our current agreement exists," these stations have been telling viewers.
