    It's a pretty obvious conclusion based on your posts and that you signed up today just to post them.

    If Viacom pulled the channels 15 minutes early, looks like someone has breached their contract. :grin:

    And now the message shows the owner of the channel forced DIRECTV to suspend the channel.

    Wait, they are claiming that their channels equate to 20% of all DirecTV viewers TV viewing? I call BS on that one for sure...

    And also, why on earth would they give the same portion of their income to any broadcaster as what their view ship % is. That's what they are trying to equate this too. How would they be able to afford any of the infrastructure that is required to keep the company running if they did that?

    That is all just marketing talk. Of course, Directv is all about marketing too when it comes to what we are all actually seeing, no two ways about it.

    I just hope the negotiators don't listen to either marketing departments for guidance.

    He recorded that way before today and i doubt the overpayed pampered out of touch with reality executives from both sides are not negioating now, it would cost them sleep time

    Well, I hope to have MTV back before Teen Wolf next Monday, but I can actually go two weeks, as MTV shows the previous and new episodes back to back on Monday night.

    Here's hoping for a quick resolution for those who don't have that luxury and will be missing their favorite channels and shows....
