Retransmission Consent squabbles

Ads have already started running in affected markets with a Nexstar-owned CBS station: 


If this is the kind of 'acting' we can expect of programming on the Nexstar-era CW it's safe to say that trophy shelf builders won't be needed at Perry's golf mansion. 🤭


Most station groups have basic knowledge of what providers exist in a certain area so you don't get embarrassing situations like this ad airing on WFRV, where one Comcast system exists in the entire state of Wisconsin, or KTVI/KPLR, in Spectrum's home city. 

Comcast customers get Peacock free with local stations $5 extra, so this is becoming a problem easily solved by the consumer, and Comcast is still getting paid; they could also just presumably pipe in a distant NBC/TMD owned station the same way Time Warner did to Nexstar during a Hearst dispute and if Congress somehow whines, takes the fine as 'putting the customer first'. Same with Paramount+. And the CW is in its holiday dead period so nobody's going to care if they miss Riverdale.
