.....yeah typically fios sucks ass on hd quality especially verizon
That's all that I'd like to see D* add, but I can live without them. Hell, I've survived for years without having them.
And D* isn't ripping me off by not providing these channels, as they never offered them to me and don't include them in my bill.
All I know is that my daughter watched Yo Gabba Gabba this afternoon on Nick Jr. Tomorrow? She's still going to see the older repeats on Netflix, but not the newer episodes and I'm not happy about that.
I don't care who is to blame, I just want Nick Jr. back soon.
At least the SD versions on Netflix look better than Nick Jr on D*.
who do you use exactly?
Ok cool was just trying to help.
iTunes offers "Hollywood Heights" for free...
Wow! People are really getting hysterical on Facebook :flaiming
WRONG FANBOY -
Learn some manners...Sixto is highly respected in this community!
Yeah i know people are crazy on facebook.
Nice gesture by DirecTV. They probably could have thrown Starz in with it but, eh, don't rock the boat I guess..
That pretty well sums up my feelings about this.
Wake me up if/when this is resolved. I certainly won't notice otherwise.
I just want to know where he can get it for 50% less?!?!
I know this won't last long. DirecTV or Viacom don't want to loose each others benefit. Either Viacom will deal or DirecTV will give in and go up on costs. I wish the FCC could ban this he providers from pulling out when they want to get more money than needed to provide programming.
I'll use Netflix, Hulu or the channels website for the shows I watch (for free)
I watch Comedy Central (Futurama), MTV (Teen Wolf), CMT (music videos).
My mother is more worried than I am as she watches Hot in Cleveland on TV Land.
But as of 12:21 am CDT Viacom channels no longer appear in the channel guide, tuning directly provides a message with background music stating why this is happening. I foresee Viacom probably giving in since they are the ones asking more revenue. Probably by this time tomorrow Viacom channels will be back on. Viacom is just trying to flex their muscles and show they can do what they want. I often wonder if Viacom is run by professional adults or children of the networks they run.
I can still get the Viacom standard def in ClearQAM through my cable line. I just checked and MTV is on CATV CH 36.5602 here in SD. Also can get CMT, Comedy, VH1. Always good to have a backup. It came in handy during Hurricane Irene too when the rain was so bad and the Sat signal was real low.
Thats where I actually found out about this whole situation literally 10 minutes ago. Of course I had to come here to check out the chatter.
(off topic) I too can still get the Viacom channels on my cable (Charter) too. Not on ClearQAM. Charter isn't that giving. I have no doubt Viacom will try this with the Cable Co.s later when their contracts are up too.
Encore channels 535-542 must be on for everyone during the dispute.
People pay an HD Access fee for HD duplicates of the SD channels and HD only channels. They pay this once a month and it covers all the receivers in the home, not per channel. Nor per parent company (Viacom HD/SD). There are Distant Network channels available for those of us who do not have locals available in our area, or travel regularly in an RV. These are not part of the regular line up. MTV HD and SD show the same exact show at the same exact time, making it the same channel, just different quality. Furthermore what you are proposing will be more costly and therefore not the "right thing", as this will raise prices as well...... The force is not strong with this one.
It all comes down to personal tastes... I've seen several channels become more popular to me.
A couple of years ago, I had MTV in my favorites list, but I never tuned to it... last year, I watched two hours worth of programming on it during the year, and for the last week or so this year, an hour and thirty minutes of programming.
By that same token, TV Land was a channel I only watched from time to time, but now it's turned into a channel I usually watch at least an hour of almost every week of the year.
Comedy Central gets my viewing of new "Futurama" episodes, and I'll occasionally catch a minute or two of Stewart and Colbert, and I may watch a couple of the other channels from time to time (particularly Palladia), but I'm not all that interested in them.
However, I don't know of any of these channels losing any insanely popular programming that would result in them experiencing ratings woes other than people moving on to other things...
