ABC Blackout - DirecTV

What is being done about the ABC Blackout in NWA? Aside from directing customers to a useless website full of excuses and finger pointing is anything being done to resolve this issue? ABC is a BASIC cable channel with LOCAL news, weather & information not just popular tv shows. I understand I am paying Direct TV for equipment to provide movie channels & sports networks but the failure to provide 1 of 4 free basic cable channels is unacceptable to me! I am baffled.

This question, "ABC Blackout," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
