DIRECTV & DIRECTV STREAM Will Bring Back The CW In 21 Markets Tomorrow





Today, DIRECTV announced that it will be bring back The CW in 21 markets tomorrow. This comes as Sinclair reached a new deal with Nexstar for The CW. This comes as back in July 2023, DIRECTV and DIRECTV STREAM lost access to Sinclair-owned The CW affiliates after Nexstar blocked their access. Now, with the new contract, Sinclair has informed DIRECTV that they will be bringing their The CW affiliates back to DIRECTV, DIRECTV STREAM, and U-verse TV customers.

This deal will also include The CW affiliates managed by Sinclair but run by Cunningham Broadcasting Group, Deerfield Media-Manhan Meidia, and GoCom Media of Illinois, LLC.

“We’re certainly pleased that Sinclair seems to have seized back the right to provide its viewers, and our customers, the programming they should have always retained in the first place.” DIRECTV said in a statement sent to Cord Cutters News.

Nexstar-owned The CW affiliates will remain dark on DIRECTV-owned networks. Still, no deal has been reached between DIRECTV and Nexstar to bring back Nexstar-owned locals.
