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.
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.
