Back in April PlayStation Vue with little warning dropped all Sinclair owned ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC locals. Today PlayStation Vue has started to re-add Sinclair owned locals. There is still no official announcement but multiple PlayStation Vue subscribers have contacted Cord Cutters News saying their Sinclair locals are back.
Back in April Sinclair released this statement on the PlayStation Vue blackout:
“We regret Sony was not willing to meet certain requirements for carrying our stations,” stated Barry Faber, Sinclair’s EVP Network Relations & Distribution in a statement on Sinclairs website. “We remind Sony subscribers that there are other video distributor options available to receive our broadcast stations’ programming, including Sony’s direct competitor YouTube TV, which continues to carry stations that Sony has dropped. Fortunately, subscribers to PlayStation Vue can terminate their subscriptions with ease and without termination fees.”
