CBS channels have gone dark in Hobbs, Lovington and Seminole

Due to a contract dispute with Nexstar Media Group, Gray Television revoked TDS’ right to carry the following channels:

Hobbs – CBS — Channel 5 (SD) and 705 (HD)
Lovington – CBS — Channel 5 (SD )and 705 HD
Seminole – CBS — Channel 7 (SD) and 707 (HD)

As of Jan. 7, these channels are no longer being transmitted on the TDS lineup at this time.

Nexstar made a request to CBS to remove the out-of-market channel, while the in-market DMA channel is dark. This request is per the non-duplication laws and is in all CBS affiliation retransmission consent agreements.

In Hobbs and Lovington, KBIM is the in-market channel.

In Seminole, KLBK is the in-market channel.
