I was gonna ask about the hd feed of Comedy Central but they just.flipped the switch
Glad its settled for awhile. Ok who's next Batter Up !
It's almost like Festivus in July!
I want to thank the cooler heads at both Viacom and DirecTV for coming to an agreement. Early on, it seemed like the hot heads were spinning their points out of control, using new media like a digital coffee shop. They were the loud table over in the corner at Denny's, talking out their butts and doing nothing other than disturbing the meals of their fellow diners. I'm glad they were finally ushered out so that the rest of us could get back to our food.
And the Discovery networks.
There really is no end to the negotiating of carriage agreements.
It's too bad D* doesn't offer Epix for those who would be willing to pay for it. But glad to see the channels back for those who watch them. Oh well. Next dispute......
Also hope the new deal adds all the missing HD feeds. I care more about HD feeds then streaming.
According to the Viacom press release, it sounds like Epix still isn't completely out of the question to be added:
"All 26 Viacom networks, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, BET, CMT, Logo, Spike, TV Land, MTV2, VH1, VH1 Classic, Palladia, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, TeenNick, Tr3s and Centric, will return to DIRECTV’s channel lineup immediately. As part of the overall carriage agreement, DIRECTV has an option to add the EPIX service to its entertainment offerings."
Encore is still on.... but for how long?
G4? I might switch, but no G4...
I remember seeing in one of the early on tweets and Facebook posts that it would be free through the end of July.
I would like to see it added. They do run some good movies that are no liner on the existing premiums. Even If it's a la carte I'd be interested.
Getting the four Epix channels would be nice.
Tr3s and Centric? I didn't even know they existed...or what they are!
I removed the Viacom channels from my favorites list and have no plans to put them back.
I am sooo glad that i can finally find outhow who lives in a pineapple at the bottom of the sea. It has been bothering me for a week
I wonder how many of the people who left DirecTV because Viacom was dark actually got their new service installed before the dispute was settled. This was much adu about missing 17 channels for 10 days.
End of Thread?
I think there should be some petition to show Directv that we subscribers would like to pay more to receive Epix as long as it's all the channels and not just one or two....Don't let it be like Cinemax in the past when they offered just three channels at full price. Do you think this would be a good idea or no?
If Epix continues to improve, then it can be its own separate agreement down the road.
Epix is and should be a premium.
