Channel 2 won't disappear from DirecTV on Friday
First Published Feb 28 2013 07:23 pm • Last Updated Feb 28 2013 07:23 pm

As our friends at DirecTV have been saying for weeks, there will be no interruption of service for KUTV and KMYU in Utah — or for any of the other Sinclair Broadcasting-owned stations across the country.

The two sides haven't exactly solved their differences — there's still no agreement on how much DirecTV will pay Sinclair to continue to carry it stations — but Sinclair won't pull its stations while negotiations continue. Just the way DirecTV said things would go.

Here's the satellite company's statement: "DirecTV and Sinclair Broadcast Group today extended their current retransmission consent agreement to allow DirecTV to continue providing Sinclair's local broadcast stations without interruption as the companies continue working toward a new agreement."

And here's Sinclair's statement: "Sinclair is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with DirecTV on a new retransmission consent agreement and has entered into a short-term extension of its existing agreement in order to allow the parties to enter into a formal agreement. As a result, DirecTV will continue to carry all of our stations. We thank our viewers for their patience and support during these negotiations."

Don't thank us too soon. Those Big Scary Crawls promising gloom and doom were incredibly annoying.
