lost local channels - XFinity

Lost my local channels today! No NFL playoffs on Comcast, guess going to switch to DirectTV.
I had everything last night, but this morning ABC, NBC, FOX, and CBS were not accessible. The answer I got from customer service was "due to ongoing negotiations" and "unknown when the stituation will be resolved." Must have been a lot of negotiations going on late Saturday night / early Sunday morning to cause the change to happen overnight?
