DirecTV doesn't actually have intelligent human beings who control things like this behind the scenes. Instead, they have trained monkeys being bribed with bananas. They just push a series of different colored buttons put in front of them. Maybe...just maybe...they'll sort it out by tomorrow.

Couldn't it have been the fault of NBC Universal and not DirecTV?

I checked it today about noon, it said Paid Programming but has a USA movie on it again. This is really weird.

I had the same thing happen - did a reset and then everything worked fine. Checked my second set and USA was still on 355 so did a reset on that receiver and it fixed it as well.
