Update CBS locals in many markets have gone dark. Learn more HERE.

If you have fuboTV, you may lose your locals on Monday. FuboTV’s deal to carry CBS networks is up for renewal, and some local affiliate owners are not happy with the new deal. Now CBS has announced any market that does not agree to this new deal with FuboTV will have their local feeds replaced with a national feed.

The deadline for your local CBS station to agree to the new deal is 5 PM Eastern on Monday, January 30th. If your local CBS doesn’t agree to the deal, you will find a national feed with all-national programming but no local programming, according to a report from NextTV.

In recent years, local stations have given up their rights to negotiate with streaming services like fuboTV directly. Now they let Paramount do it for them, and they get to devices if they agree to the deal or not.

It seems that locals are unhappy with the deal Paramount has agreed to, but locals also gave Paramount the right to stream a national feed if they don’t agree to the new contract.

CBS will reportedly replace local programming with content from its free CBS News streaming service.

We will need to wait until 5 PM Eastern on Monday, January 30th, to find out who decided not to agree to the new contract. There are reports that if the deadline were today, many stations would go dark on FuboTV.
