When the dispute went public, AT&T said, “TEGNA is demanding the largest rate increase we have ever seen.”
TEGNA, in response, said, “the value of what we offer to our pay-TV partners has never been greater. The differentiated, non-substitutable programming we provide including live local news, live local and national sports, and first run, highly popular network content is a vital reason why consumers continue to subscribe to pay-TV bundles.”
11Alive, besides its local news operations, airs “The Today Show,” “Wheel of Fortune,” “Jeopardy,” “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Dr. Phil” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” In prime-time, NBC offers “This is Us,” “The Voice,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Chicago Hope” and “Superstore,” to name a few.
