    DirecTv here as well. I'm glad BET is gone and the rest haven't been missed yet.

    Can't we terminate our service with DirecTV? Isn't it a violation of the customer contract to charge us for these channels and not deliver them? Can't we just call them, cancel the service and go to our cable provider for service?

    I'm sure at some point they'll kiss and make up, but until that moment I'm going to be on the phone with retentions to try to get credit for losing all these channels that I'm still being charged for and to see if I can get a free upgrade to my ancient HD-DVR. Dish Network recently lost AMC and were giving away Roku HD2 boxes to customers who bitched hard enough about it. http://www.theverge.com/2012/7/10/3149425/dish-amc-roku-boxes-statement-credits-offer-gift

    I been a directv customer for 10 years and ive never had too much trouble with it. It is a bit pricy but so is every cable or satelite service. It has some good channels. I first heard about this viacom shit last night a couple hours before the deadline cause a buddy mentioned it on facebook. Viacom is greedy as fuck over those shitty ass channels IMO. I realize a good many folks may like them but just from my preference they all suck.

    TV Land USED to be good before they took off the good shows and made their shitty origional programming so i seldom watched it. MTV has sucked since the late 80s early 90s when they started showing everything BUT music videos. Dont have kids so i dont care about nick, nick jr or wtf ever. Dont watch spike tv, dont watch comedy central cause i can find southpark online and dont care about the other shit they show. CMT, I dont care for country music enough to watch a network about it.

    If the companies cant resolve this in a timely fashion though, i hope directv lowers their price packages a few bucks or finds some new , english speaking channels to add to their line up. Viacom is being a dick, blocking people from viewing their shows on their own website now and blaming it on dtv, i hope v loses some biiig time bucks and begs dtv to carry their shit again.
