DIRECTV Customer Service – 855-937-9468

Q: What is happening?

A: DIRECTV subscribers lost their WFXR and WWCW stations at 11:59 p.m. local time on July 3, 2019.

WFXR and WWCW have yet to reach a new distribution agreement to allow the cable television provider the right to continue to air your favorite new stories around the Roanoke, Lynchburg, New River Valley area.

Q: Are you still negotiating with DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse?

A: We were negotiating, and we offered multiple times to extend our current deal while we vigorously attempted to provide both sides more time to reach a fair agreement. Unfortunately, DIRECTV continued to deny our request and that is why your service was abruptly interrupted.

Q: What other programming could I miss?

A: If DIRECTV does not to carry your local WFXR station, you would lose your local news, emergency service updates and your favorite shows such as the Women’s World Cup Finals on July 7th, NFL on FOX, including Thursday Night Football, the Primetime Emmy Awards and the new season of The Masked Singer. In addition, the loss of WWCW would mean no more Supergirl, Flash, or Riverdale!

Q: Where will WFXR and WWCW programming still be available?

A: No other cable or satellite company is affected; only DIRECTV customers are at risk of having their favorite news, comedies, dramas, and sports taken away. Other providers are available including DISH (855-898-6730) and over-the-air with digital antenna.

Q: What can I do about this situation?

A: You have choices. Call 855-937-9468 and demand they keep your favorite local news source! You can also contact other local providers – including DISH (855-898-6730) – and switch to make sure you are treated fairly and get the programming you want.
