Today YouTube TV has added more The CW Network affiliates that are owned by Nexstar. This is part of a deal with THE CW’s parent company Nexstar Media Group, INC. that allows YouTube TV to continue to have access to the CW Network for years to come.
With this deal, YouTube TV will be adding 59 new Nexstar stations, including 29 CW affiliates and 29 MyNetworkTV affiliates. For now, it seems that only the CW affiliates are starting to go live. MyNetworkTV affiliates and other independents will go live at a later date.
“We are extremely pleased to have reached agreement to continue carriage of its CW-affiliated stations on YouTube TV, especially as we move forward with our plans to transform The CW with additional sports programming and a new slate of prime-time entertainment shows this Fall,” said Dennis Miller, President of The CW Network. “YouTube TV is an important partner for our affiliates and us, and we look forward to expanding our relationship and growing our audience via this dynamic platform.”
This deal will add 59 new Nexstar Stations including 29 CW-affiliated television stations, its 26 MyNetworkTV affiliates, and its four independent stations in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Oklahoma City, and Baton Rouge.
Nexstar bought 75% ownership of The CW from Warner Bros. Discovery in October 2022. This deal will ensure no issues as the new owner continues to put their stamp on The CW.
