Lack of new episodes - DirecTV

So many shows in TV are still running episodes which were produced as much as 14 years ago. Why do I continue paying for this? Why does my provider (Uverse) not insist on newer content from the channel owners? Why do the channel owners think its OK to create about 6 new episodes a year fao any one series and fill up the rest of the proram's schedule with old (or REALLY old) episodes?Considering that about 3/4 of the episodes I get on Uverse are older than 2 years old, I should be paying about 1/4 of what I'm paying.

This question, "Lack of new episodes," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
