As the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports, a carriage dispute between the DirecTV and the owner of Miami's Fox affiliate WSVN caused the channel to black out throughout the weekend. Two NFL playoff games were not broadcast this past weekend.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted that a similar standoff between Verizon FiOS and a CBS affiliate owner in Harrisburg, Penn. kept playoff games off the air in parts of Pennsylvania.
