DirecTV Inc. subscribers in 19 U.S. markets have lost access to certain programming, after Tribune Broadcasting said it failed to reach a settlement with the satellite television provider in their contract negotiations.
Tribune's 23 local stations were dropped as of midnight in each U.S. time zone. DirecTV subscribers in the markets where Tribune owns the local Fox affiliate lost access to programs such as "American Idol" and Major League Baseball. Where Tribune owns the local affiliate of The CW Network, DirecTV subscribers are unable to see shows such as "Gossip Girl" and "Vampire Diaries."
