    Like I said, I do not know the real numbers, but I'm betting my concept it sound. Epix obviously wanted more money for their channels as a seperate package than what DirecTV thought they would be worth. Therefore we do not have them.

    Obviously as DogTV proves, if a channel is willing to let DirecTV price it where it needs to be, DirecTV will be willing to provide it. That's probably why DogTV is $6/month on DirecTV instead of $10/month like it is on Roku etc. DogTV was willing to negotiate on a price that they could both agree on. Viacom/Epix evidently won't, or we would have the channels.

    I don't think DirecTV has any interest on forcing them into a package like the HD Extra pack. I think they want them as a seperate premium package like HBO/Showtime/Starz/etc, but Viacom/Epix wants too much money for the channels for that to work (in DirecTV's opinion).

    And they ended up being right about G4. But the two can't be compared, since DogTV is a premium.

    Those who want to subscribe to DOGTV now have two options. DirecTV's SD feed for $6.00/month or Roku's HD feed for $10.00/month.

    Directv posted something on the referral program on Facebook, saw lots of comments threatening to leave unless it was added, or would never switch to directv unless they had it. Of course whether they really do leave is a different question.

    I was at DirecTV's Facebook page and also saw that. A few posters there are figuring Facebook would be an effective route to getting DirecTV to add The Blaze.

    I wonder if this was happening prior to AMC finally getting added by DirecTV in September 2011.

    I find it annoying. Posting on their page to ask for a channel is fine but the carpet bombing of any topic in discussion for anything not related to the topic is annoying.
