    Nope, in fact I'll pay them more for the sports pack and watch my college football on some out of market CSN. As long as I know we're fighting the greed, I'll play along.

    Nope, not gong to sweat missing some wings games on my rsn. Though I will be inclined to call and politely see if there may be a programming credit of some sort

    I was wish Dish when they stopped having the fox channels last year and I never left I left about 6 months later when my contract was up, but Its mainly Fox's fault they want to much money.

    No, I won't be jumping ship. Disputes between programmers and providers are like bad weather, always happening. Unless your totally dissatisfied with your service all you can do is ride out the storm.

    I'm more likely to jump ship if they keep running those dueling crawlers that take up about a fifth of the screen. :lol:

    If they drop Fox News along with the others, I will ask for and get a $20 discount monthly discount. After two months, I am gone as a subscriber.

    How many times does it need to be said/typed that Fox News isn't part of this?

    Not going to leave over the channels they are dropping Nov 1st. I occasionally watch the Fox Sport channel and they could affect the NHLCI package, but its unlikely. Even if they do, I'll still have my MSG channels which are more important to me.

    If we later lose the local Fox channel and Fox News, I still won't be going anywhere. I can get the local Fox channel OTA and record it on my OTA DVR. The local Fox affiliate, is about the only News Corp/Fox channel I watch.

    NO. I would miss SPEED for F1 & Nascar Trucks - and then FX for Justified. But it's near the end of season for Nascar and Justified is months off so, no issues if D* plays hardball and stands up to NewsCorp.

    With tough times, ALL these companies need to realize that the consumer is at the bottom of the chain and when "it comes to push comes to shove", stuff like this will be dropped.

    They cannot expect the bottom consumer to absorb the cost. WE WILL drop channels, plans, coverage, extras, add-ons, etc. to meet our budgets.

    DTV needs to be pressured into not making us pay for all these channels that we don't watch. DTV is ripping us off, not Fox. I don't mind paying for the 50 channels I care about, not the 200 that I don't.

    No way I will quit. I might quit if Directv gives and and I get soaked on a bill increase.

    Sick of this greed.

    I am sick of the greed also. I am also going to be upset if Speed channel is turned off right when the NASCAR season is in it's final weeks. They certainly do cover the sport as well or better than any other network.

    No - I am completely with DirecTV on this one. I don't think I will notice.

    Do you not understand it is the channel providers who dictate a lot of this and not Directv, Comcast, Dish, etc? I am sure most every operator at this point would love to shove the channels that cost them a lot of $$ per sub into dedicated extra packages but they can't. The providers agreement with them states what type of package it will be in.

    To answer the question, no I will not leave. NFL Sunday Ticket trumps all.
