Verizon and LIN Media

Click for full size
For those of you interested / affected, Vz's contract w/LIN Media expires tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. If an agreement is not reached, 3 regions could lose some of their broadcast networks.

I predict a deal will be reached at 4:59pm and nobody will lose their programming. That's how this usually plays out

Yep, that's my guess too. Just hadn't seen anybody mention it, so thought I'd throw it out there since it affects 3 markets.

Except with LIN Media...they have no qualms about pulling signal so they can leverage their viewers as pawns to force the carrier into signing. Could be in for a long haul...time to dig the ole UHF antenna out and grab OTA...preferrably from another market!

As predicted, an agreement was made at just about 5:00.
