For additional information, review the FAQs below.
Q: What other programming could I miss?
A: Since DIRECTV has decided not to carry WSAV NEWS 3 ON YOUR SIDE, you have lost your local news, emergency service updates, and community-focused programming that you so depend on. Over the past week, you have missed dozens of stories that have aired and directly impacted residents of Savannah GA, Hilton Head SC, and the surrounding area, not including all of the daily traffic and weather updates. With Hurricane Season upon us, DIRECTV is putting the safety of Savannah and Hilton Head residents, both young and old alike, at risk by not being able to view any weather alerts or critical information as needed.
Q: Where will WSAV NEWS 3 ON YOUR SIDE programming still be available?
A: No other cable or satellite company is affected; only DIRECTV customers have lost their favorite news source for the Savannah GA and Hilton Head SC areas. Other providers are available including DISH and Comcast, and over-the-air with a digital antenna.
Q: Are you still negotiating with DIRECTV?
A: Although the contract has expired, we remain available to establish a mutually agreeable contract with DIRECTV. We are disappointed that DIRECTV has chosen not to carry the only local news source in their backyard that covers Savannah GA and Hilton Head SC as in-depth as WSAV NEWS 3 ON YOUR SIDE does.
Q: What can I do about this situation?
A: Act now and demand that DIRECTV bring back your local hometown station. Contact DIRECTV directly at 855-937-9469 and tell them to return to negotiations and bring back WSAV NEWS 3 ON YOUR SIDE on your satellite system.
