AT&T vs The Dispatch Broadcast Group
If you’re a subscriber of DirecTV or U-verse and you’ve been without WBNS 10tv, it’s because The Dispatch Broadcast Group pulled the channel from satellite providers on September 6. DirecTV and U-verse are owned by AT&T Inc.
Channel 10 is looking for a fair-market deal, according to its website. They were hoping to settle on a fair market rate without service interruptions but unfortunately, the deadline to reach an agreement with DirecTV and AT&T U-verse has passed, hence the blackout.
If Dispatch Broadcast gave AT&T permission, they could have WBNS back into their viewers’ homes within minutes. They’re actively trying to get the issue sorted out but until then, you’ll have to go without Dr. Phil.
