NCTC encourages members to help MobiTV

Tribune stations will stay on Charter’s lineup at least through 5pm ET Wednesday. Hours away from a 12:01am Jan. 1 contract expiration, the two agreed to a brief extension as they continue negotiations.

If a deal isn’t eventually reached, 33 Tribune stations in 24 markets will disappear from Charter’s line-up. Tribune began warning viewers of a potential blackout on Wednesday, with negotiations continuing throughout the week.

Another potential blackout was resolved over the weekend, with Verizon and Disney/ESPN reaching a new deal that kept ESPN, Freefrom and ABC O&Os in Philly and New York City from going dark on New Year’s Eve. Details haven’t been disclosed yet, but it’s likely that Fios will carry the upcoming ACC Network.

Verizon lost three TEGNA stations at 5pm ET Monday WVEC (ABC Norfolk), WUSA (CBS DC) and WGRZ (NBC Buffalo).
