Des Moines-area DIRECTV subscribers have lost access to WOI 5 and CW Iowa 23 as a result of a contract dispute between the satellite TV service provider and Nexstar. According to USA Today, "More than 120 stations in 97 markets across the nation, which include ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliate stations, went dark at 11:59 p.m. local time July 3 after Nexstar and AT&T were unable to reach an agreement."
