AT&T and DirecTV subs reached a multi-year retransmission consent deal Sunday, returning 26 stations that have been dark since Tuesday. The agreement returns five CBS stations owned by Cox before tonight’s Super Bowl.
As per usual, terms weren’t released. The agreement covers 20 Nielsen markets, including Seattle, Atlanta, and Tulsa.
While AT&T and CMG was the largest outstanding blackout heading into Sunday’s big game, there are others. Saturday evening, DISH lost WINK-TV, a local CBS station in southwest Florida owned by Fort Myers Broadcasting. Mediacom has an ongoing blackout with TEGNA that includes a few CBS stations as well. Viewers can watch Super Bowl LV for free on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App on their phones and connected TV devices or with a CBS All Access subscription.
