    Is the station owned by Nexstar?

      If you live close to the stations transmitter you can get it over the air (OTA) . Type in your address https://tvfool.com/

          contract dispute with AT&T over carriage/distribution fees. ... it's happened with most of our local network affiliates at one time or another.

            NBC/NBCSN are still on here (Altice/Optimum in New Jersey).

            Check if your NBC Sports app still works.

              I lost my local NBC as well.
              Both sides blame the other but as I understand it, if a feed is provided to DTV (regardless of the state of business negotiations), it must be aired so it sounds like Nexstar is the one that pulled the plug.

                The Nexstar dispute should have no effect on NBCSN on AT&T and DirecTV.

                In Indy, WISH-TV 8 (formerly CBS, now independent) and I think channel 23 are affected by this.

                  Get an antenna,put it on your roof, point it towards the transmitter and voila' , you will have your NBC back.

                    I am not sure what your question is. Are you looking for a way to watch indycar programming live? If that is the case, then you should still be able to use the NBCsports app as long as you still have access to the NBCsports channel on your cable system.

                    If you don't know how to access the NBC sports app, I am sure one of us can help you. You've got the rest of the week to get up to speed, as it were.

                      I recently added a 30 dollar attic antenna for local stations, you definitely get a higher resolution picture with over the air compared to cable or streaming.
                      If your house is wired for cable, and you don't use cable any more, you can use that coax as an antenna feed to all your tv sets. The antenna works fine with a bunch of tvs connected to it, it my case 4. You can buy a cheap DVR (I got an Amazon Fire Recast) to record OTA shows.

                        I only lost my ABC and I almost never watch that now.

                          I have DirecTV Now through AT&T but I still have all my NBC stuff. I think it's because I'm on a grandfathered plan, I got it a little over a year ago and a few months ago they sent an email saying their plans were changing and there would be fewer channels (I think all the Viacom channels got yanked) but I would still be able to keep my plan as long as I want it. So, lucky for me I guess.

                            There must be a lot of contracts coming up. AT&T and Direct have both dumped the local ABC station because they can't come to an agreement. I imagine they do it this time of year so they can get things sorted before the fall tv season starts and people are livid about missing their shows.
                            I'm from a place called the internet. Nothing disturbs me.

                              I’ve had DTV for almost 20 years and my Nexstar owned local NBC station is gone.
