CBS ‘Fact Sheet’ Ribs AT&T On Retrans Rejection


When will CBS Corporation-owned TV stations return to DirecTV, DirecTV NOW or AT&T U-Verse?

It could be sooner than when Nexstar Media Group stations — including many CBS affiliates — return by way of a freshly minted retransmission consent agreement, AT&T head Randall Stephenson hinted during his company’s Q2 earnings call for investors on Wednesday.

That said, Stephenson joked that he’s heard “crickets” from CBS regarding a new retrans deal.

It could be because CBS was busy sending out a communique with “some facts regarding the current situation.”
