Here we go again. Yet another dispute between media companies may mean that some local viewers will lose access to a couple of local TV stations.
This time, it's Sinclair Broadcasting the parent company of KUTV and KMYU and DirecTV that are at odds. Their agreement runs out on March 1, meaning Utah DirecTV subscribers could lose access to the CBS and MyNetworkTV affiliates.
What it boils down to is, of course, money. Cable and satellite companies have to pay for local broadcast signals; Sinclair wants DirecTV to pay more to rebroadcast its stations than DirecTV thinks those stations are worth.
