Today was the deadline for AT&T and Sinclair to strike a new deal or see Sinclair owned locals and nationals would go dark. Now the 5 PM Eastern deadline has come and gone with AT&T keeping Sinclair owned locals.

Update: Sinclair has shut down its website warning about an AT&T blackout. Now there is just a message saying Sinclair is working with AT&T to keep Sinclair stations on DIRECTV, AT&T TV, AT&T TV NOW, and U-verse TV.

AT&T has confirmed to Cord Cutters News that the stations remain up as talks continue. There is no long term deal but for now, AT&T will keep Sinclair owned locals The Tennis Channel, Stadium, Comet, and more on DIRECTV, AT&T TV NOW, U-verse TV, & more. This is good news for sports fans who ran the risk of losing their locals just as a busy week of college and NFL football was about to get started.

For now, there is no word on how long this deal is good for. It could be for a few hours like the extensions with Disney or a week like the last extension Sinclair and AT&T reached.

This is breaking news. We will post more as we learn more about the deal that kept Sinclair owned locals and national channels on AT&T.
