It will be interesting if they come to an agreement and put them back on.  You can watch Newsmax for free on their APP.

Even if they do I am done with them. I have just been looking for an excuse to dump them, and here it is.

First they dumped OAN, and now Newsmax. I don't agree with everything Newsmax does, but at least they are a somewhat conservative voice.

And rumor is they are thinking of dumping Fox News.

All the woke BS they are showing now is horrible. And now even when you pause a show, you have to watch their ads about drag shows and shit.

Like I said....fuck em/ That's $110 a month they will no longer have.

My Tablo now records 90% of what the wife watches for free anyway. That and the 6.95/mo. for Discovery plus keeps her happy.

Some of our Congresscritters are pissed too.

It will be interesting to see how fast Directv bleeds subscribers now that they lost NFL Sunday Ticket.  Add to that people cutting the cord.   I know they Directv stream but that doesn't seem really popular plus it seems priced too high.   I was about ready to cancel Spectrum cable but they gave me a deal when I threatened to.   I save a ton of money having a Tivo the only equipment cost is a $2 cable card each month.

Directv accused me of owing them money from 10 years in the past. I asked them how I could have a past due balance and still have service. I told them I paid it when I restarted my service 10 years ago. They basically called me a liar. I told them to prove I owe the money, they said prove you paid it. I told them I don't keep checks from 10 yeras ago. They wouldn't budge. I told them, "you know what? Fuck it! Cancel it." They are "????!!!" Me, "you heard me, cancel my service immediately" Me:. Them:
That was somewhere around 2007 or 08.

We know they cancelled OAN because Pelosi claimed they were "spreading disinformation."  We know what that means.

Now Newsmax.  No way.  I just cancelled THEM.  That's $136/mo I'll be saving.  No person that believes in freedom of speech should be subscribing to AT&T / Uverse / Direct TV.

Fired Uverse last year, way overpriced for what I watched. The canceling of OAN was one of the last straws.
I can still watch Newsmax  and Real Americas Voice on my Samsung tv, and OAN on the Roku streaming box in the other room.

I had DTV with NFL Sunday Ticket. When the NFL cheered on BLM while cities were burning, I cancelled DTV. I told them that the only reason I had their service was for Sunday Ticket, and the NFL is irritating instead of entertaining, so "bye".

I get a call every month with offers and discounts. I don't even answer the call anymore.

Roku is shit. Get something Android based where you are not limited in what you can put on your device. We have Chromecasts in our household and love them.

Fire sticks are OK but full of Amazon's bloatware that can't be removed without jailbreaking...Google still loads up the Chromecast with their shit but you can atleast remove them without jailbreaking.

I haven't had DirectTV since 2003, but if they get rid of Fox News, they will lose a LOT of subscribers.

You can still get Newsmax and OAN on PlutoTV.

dtv claims newsmax is upping their fee.
newsmax says thats a lie.
whos really knows.  all i know is im pissed now.  I preferred OAN to NM so when DTV cut OAN last year I begrudgingly moved to NM, and now this.

Fuck Directv!!

They lost my business in 2017 when they stopped showing local channels, again, during the playoffs. Claiming contract negotiations. Fuck you! I put up an antenna and told them to eat shit.

I have since pretty much stopped watching most sports but have not missed those cunts at all.

Currently on night shift. When I woke up I found the channel gone from Uverse as well. Gonna cancel this garbage.

Newsmax was demanding more money for the rights to their chann, so  Direct TV was like bye

Free market gonna free market

We dumped them over a year ago. The bill had climbed to over $200 a month and just wasn't worth it anymore. If they have lost their Sportsball contracts, they are toast.
Another issue was their lack of effort to find a way around a local channel issue. We couldn't get the Dallas news and local channels because of an FCC ruling that the two local Green Acres TV stations must be carried because they served several counties in Oklahoma. Funny, the streaming channels don't seem to have a problem with that.

newsmax is claiming they werent demanding any more.  i kind of believe them given dtv just upped and canned OAN like they did last year.  if anything, DTV made Newsmax the only non-MSM news source that caters to US audiences.  so from my stance dtv could just up and pay them with all their "savings" from OAN.  that is if they really cared about providing their base any kind of alternative to MSM, obviously of which they dont.

With the cash you save you could get a membership?
Because the big satellite companies have no problem paying the liberal networks like Vice, CNN, MSNBC, etc.
