Satellite subscribers will not lose access to Fox 23 KBSI today after an agreement reached Thursday evening between the station's owners and satellite provider DIRECTV. According to a news release issued by Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns KBSI, a retransmission consent agreement was reached. The companies have entered into a short-term extension of its existing agreement to allow the parties to enter into a formal agreement. As a result, DIRECTV will continue to carry KBSI. DIRECTV would have stopped broadcasting KBSI to its subscribers today if an agreement had not been reached.
