WEB EXTRA: A solution for U-Verse and DirecTV customers who currently are unable to watch Local 24 and CW30: an HD antenna

Local News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – The recent contract dispute between Nexstar and AT&T (U-Verse and DirecTV) has created many frustrated customers left in the dark without two of their favorite channels.

Fortunately, there is a solution which lies in the form of an HD antenna. Any viewer being affected by the current blackout can purchase an HD TV antenna at any big box retailer like Best Buy, Target, or Walmart.

Installation is simple. The HD antenna screws into the coaxial plug in the back of your TV just like the old rabbit ear antennas from years ago.

Best Buy assistant store manager Dave Thornell says HD antennas serve more than just customers affected by the blackout.

“For me, for years, I’ve had HD antennas as a back-up, so mine is always connected and I’m able to switch over so if I do lose some type of satellite feed due to a storm, I’m still able to get an antenna feed and watch my local channels for important things like weather and local news,” says Thornell.

Thornell adds that the HD antenna is a one-time purchase and there are no additional fees or set up charges. For more information on HD antennas available at Best Buy, click here.
