You've got a very interesting definition of "good faith."
Sorry. My calculator battery went dead and I had to do the math in my head
Pun intended? :lol:
Chances are they wont go dark for long, IF they do go dark, so no need to fret.
Where are you getting these odds from? Is Vegas taking bets?
If it gets to the point where D* drops locals, can they still provide guide information for those channels using the AM21? Thanks
I would think so. But remember, this isn't about Fox locals. This is about national channels.
It is not about the locals....yet.
When Disney pulled their channels (including the local O&O ABC affiliate) from Time Warner, I think that lasted less than a day. Before anyone points out that Versus was off DirecTV for 9 months, this is different. The NHL and professional bull riding not withstanding, the big draw for Versus has always been the Tour de France. Although the Versus agreement was a fight between DirecTV and Comcast, that dispute only involved one niche channel. Versus was back on DirecTV before the start of the Tour.
In the case of the Fox channels, it is not in the best interest of Fox or DirecTV to have those channels off for very long. There are too many channels involved that cover a wide range of viewers. I expect they will be back (if they even do go dark) before ACC and SEC basketball get into conference play.
This is what needs to happen .All channels should have an app . Then if you have an internet tv you just get the app (channel) you want . Then tell the cable and satellite companies to go to hell ! And that is what they get for ripping everyone one off for all these years .
That's called "a la carte" and it's been discussed many times in this thread. It will not work.
And what about the millions of Americans without sufficient internet speeds to stream your magic apps?
I agree, News Corp. would be losing 20 Million viewers, which would make ratings drop for those shows/networks, and also losing what DirecTV is paying them. I believe DirecTV has the upper hand.
Look i live in a very rule area and get hi speed internet from my phone company . so the small group of people would have to get cable or satellite .
When and were was this done fairly and not the a la carte way that you talk about ! Sure it won't work if each channel is way over priced if you go the a la carte route .
But you said we could tell the cable & satellite companies to go to hell since we'd have the apps, so the cable & satellite would die off because they can't survive off a few people.
The channels will have to raise their prices significantly to compensate for the lost income. It's not like you could subscribe to AMC a la carte for 14 cents per month.
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk urge 'American Horror Fans' to pressure DirecTV
This appeared as a commercial during this week's episode
Seems to me Fox should take a hard look at what recently went down after the NETFlix price increase. They lost a substantial chunk of subscribers. The honest truth is that in our present economy, people just don't have the money to spare.
Get Real Fox!
