BREAKING: DIRECTV and Hearst kiss and make up

Over, practically before it began. Hearst stations reapppeared overnight in over 25 cities for DIRECTV customers, a sign that a new contract has been signed. The 5-day long blackout was resolved before most new programs came back from hiatus.

It should serve as a warning shot, not just to viewers in Harrisburg, Boston and other cities, but to everyone who watches local channels, however. You never know when a channel blackout can come and you need to be ready. There’s one sure-fire way to make sure that no one can take away your local channels… get an antenna from Solid Signal. When another blackout happens — and it will — you’ll be set up to get clear, live, HD channels FOR FREE that can’t be taken away. What are you waiting for?
