AT&T said it has reached a retransmission consent agreement with Sunbeam Television for its Miami Fox affiliate, ending a weeks-long blackout, but talks continue for the broadcaster's NBC affiliate in Boston, WHDH.
The Sunbeam stations went dark to AT&T’s DirecTV customers in Miami and Boston on July 18.
“AT&T is pleased that Sunbeam Television has returned WSVN-FOX back into our customers’ local line-up and, unless it is there already, those Miami and Fort Lauderdale homes should begin receiving it again very soon,” AT&T said in a statement. “We appreciate our customers’ patience over the past few weeks yet also share in their frustration with the increasing frequency of station blackouts.”
