Why Direct TV Subscribers In Midland Odessa Still Can’t Watch World Series and Dallas Cowboys!
If you are a Direct TV subscriber here in the Permian Basin then you know there is at least 1 channel you have not been able to watch for the past week or so. And, if you're a sports fan it's been a bummer.
• DIRECT TV IS NOT BROADCASTING KPEJ FOX 24 AS OF NOW!
There is a contract dispute happening right now between the owners of KPEJ Fox-24 and Direct TV. Because of this dispute, Mission Broadcasting has pulled KPEJ off Direct-TV and with it all of its TV programs like Masked Singer. This is all because of MONEY. Currently, Direct TV pays owners of TV stations to have the right to carry their programming. Well, that AMOUNT is being disputed between FOX and Mission Broadcasting.
• DIRECT TV SPORTS FANS GET NO WORLD SERIES OR DALLAS COWBOYS GAMES THAT AIR ON FOX!
Timing is everything. And, Fox 24 got pulled off Direct-TV right when the world series was set to start! And, not to mention that a lot of Dallas Cowboys games air on the FOX network, and yep, those games of course are also not being able to be watched on Direct TV during this negotiation.
• HOW TO WATCH FOX 24 IF YOU ARE A DIRECT TV SUBSCRIBER!

• WHEN WILL FOX BE BACK ON DIRECT TV?
Sepa? Who knows? Horrible answer but oh so true. This isn't the first or last time that a TV Station will be in a contract dispute with a Satellite provider or cable provider. They usually come to terms because SUBSCRIBERS and viewers are what both sides want. Once the money is settled, it will happen, eventually.
