Banner on Fox HD Detroit

I saw a banner on the Detroit Fox East HD channel (#323) saying that it would no longer be available on DirectTV ( or maybe it was Dish).

Just wondering if that change will affect the Shaw feed of that channel?

No affect on anyone but DirecTV users.

Shaw Direct gets its Fox station from Rochester, NY not Detroit... This is a dispute with Fox Rochester and their local ABC station to remain on Directv. This will have no effect on Shaw Direct. The dispute has been resolved between Directv and Fox/ABC.

It was a dispute with Sinclair Broadcast Group, the owners of ABC and Fox affiliates in Rochester. The banner was running on WUTV and WNYO in Buffalo that are owned by the same company.

every year this happens. the most annoying part is that it cripples the video and audio feeds, making for a blurry picture and less-than-5.1 audio during the times the banner is on, and sometimes minutes before and after it's gone.
