Northwest Broadcasting vs. DirecTV
longest tv blackouts world series 2012

While DirecTV (DTV, Fortune 500) fought with Northwest Broadcasting for nine weeks, customers missed the beginning of the 2012 World Series games between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers. The broadcasting company owns a number of TV channels in the United States and Canada, including a Fox affiliate in Washington that aired the Series. For most of that fall season, DirecTV subscribers in Washington and Idaho could not watch Fox programming.
