You can qualify for blackout credits when reporting your service interruption through DIRECTV. Learn more on how to confirm the credit eligibility using your ZIP Code.
DIRECTV pays fees to TV channel owners for permission to add their channels to your lineup. As contracts expire, owners sometimes turn off their channels as a bargaining tactic.
For more information, see Retransmission Consent | Federal Communications Commission (fcc.gov)
You can check your credit eligibility by accessing the Zip Code Locator.
Heads Up: Blackout credits can take up to two billing cycles until they appear on your DIRECTV bill. If you currently have a pending blackout credit on your bill, you’ll need to wait for the next bill cycle to request a new blackout credit.
