No more FOX affiliate for West Michigan DirecTV subscribers. DirecTV has lost FOX17 as of now!
Here is what FOX17 has to say:
DirecTV stopped airing FOX17 at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, March 31, 2012, having failed to offer Tribune Broadcasting fair compensation for our programming. Federal law prohibits DirecTV from carrying FOX17 without an agreement in place. This means DirecTV subscribers are no longer able to watch their favorite programs through DirecTV.
• If you’re thinking about switching to DirecTV, why take the risk of missing FOX17?
• If you know someone who has DirecTV and doesn’t know why they’re missing FOX17, send them to TellDirecTV.com to learn more.
• If you’re a current DirecTV subscriber, we urge you to call 800-KEEPFOX (800-533-7369) toll free, and tell DirecTV you want us back.
