This is a discussion on DirecTVPromise.com within the DirecTV forums, part of the Cable and Satellite Providers category.
In response to all the hoopla about retrans fees and channels being pulled from DirecTV's channel lineup, it looks like DirecTV has started a website for providing news and information as it becomes available. directvpromise.com directvpromise.com
Kind of reminds me when Fox created a site a while back with their retrans issues with Dish Network.
Ooh, it's getting nasty.
Tribune Broadcasting opened its own site here Tell DirecTV I want my WGNTV back!
First quote on Tribune's webpage is, "Tribune Broadcasting has NOT reached an agreement or come to terms with DirecTV on any aspect of its contract. Any statement by DirecTV to the contrary is inaccurate and misleading."
It's all political in the corporate world. I see that with Time Warner who seems to do battle a lot over fees. They will scroll messages across their channels and tell customers to call their cable company (or whatever) to insist the situation be resolved.
why is it i pay all this money to directv and can not watch a channle i want because they want more money,i personaly think it is a bunch of BS,
my local news is gone over a few cents,can sure tell you loser care about the people who pay your wages.
Ask for a refund for the time period you were without your channels. They will probably give you something for your loss.
this is a bunch of bs expecially when you have to pay for it plz give channel 20 back i love watching the bachelor.
All the channels they going to stop is wat my kids watch all the time all day ever day. I have a son who dont talk and that's all he looks at Spongebob they help him in so contests. please don't take away my three year old loves Dora and the other cartoons.
Most of the channels ur getting rid of are my favorite. Please do not remove, you will lost a good customer
Absoloutley ridiculous. If they pull these channels ill take my business elsewhere and they won't get any money. Everyone who reads this cancel your service if they take them off the air. There's no reason we should pay more for what were getting already. Let this happen and I'm telling everyone I see to cancel there service. All in all this is total BS!!!!!
Bad timing! My kids are out of school and the only channels they seem to watch are Nickeloeon and Disney. Why do the cost keep rising and the channels keep disappearing? I don't. I see I don't Need my home Phone anymore because of my cell. MAYBE I couldn't've do without cable and go to nexflix or buy $100 worth of dvd's every month. It would add up quick and I can keep them and watch them when ever we want.
I want MTV on because my show teen wolf come on there I do not want it turn off keep in on and the others 17 channels.
Please keep these channels
Do we get our Bill cut in half when these channels r gone dnt want them to go!!!!!!
If i cant watch the channels i want and pay for, i have no other choice but switch to a different provider. Different cable. Give all the channels back. We pay for them. First it was regular tv, forced us to go digital, now they taking all the channels we watch. I cant go. Bs bs bs
Please don't cancel bet tv one or centric these are MY favorite channels
I to will cancel directv and find a new provider. This is crap that we have to deal with this bs. Fix it or say bye bye to a lot of your customers.
Please do not take away these channels it is not right to keep paying extra for channels we watch all the time we agree with other people that if that continues we should change to another cable
My kids are sitting here begging me to call and at that one i was woken outta bed because they dont want these channels to go ive got 2 teens and 3 youngens. Y would u guys take the only channels these kids watch. Absolute bs! N we just started service we directv. Hell i might just go back to twc and pay the extra 50 dollars.
This isnt fair most the channels i watch are about to go! Dont drop these channels please!!!
I will go elsewhere if this happens
