Have you read keepmynets and the forum on there site ? and Google the subject .


I went to the keepmynets site and saw the video with that announcer hack Steve Physioc giving Fox's point of view. Anything that he represents, I'm against.

Look I have wasted enough time today on this . We are all screwed by big business every day and it looks like all we can do for now is to talk about it on forums like this .

Yes, I did. The video didn't say that. Their FAQ didn't say that.

The forums? You mean the comments thread? I didn't read those. Why would anything there be official information?

Well, I'm hoping that if there is some official information, you'll hear it here as soon as it's public.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

An extension of the deadline is very good news. It means DirecTV feels they are close enough to an agreement that they're willing to push the cutoff back.

"we aren't canceling anything, we're simply in negotiations with Fox to keep their channels on DIRECTV for the same price."

True but the verb that they are doing is "suspending" so technically they are not lying.

Maybe they don't have enough staff for 3 AM Eastern time tomorrow morning for all the "WHY ARE MY CHANNELS GONE!" phone calls?

Had to reschedule? :D

Thats not why I found it interesting. It's the fact that they don't want any price increase that I found interesting.

Does anyone have a link to a news story to confirm this deadline extension that was mentioned earlier in the thread? The only source for this I saw was a twitter post.

The NFL SUNDAY TICKET IS THE MONOPOLY ! That is why I said basically the MLB also I know I can get the MLB online or on apple tv . It's just easier to have it all from one fair source without having to separate everything .


You need to go yell at the NFL with regards to the NFL Sunday Ticket. Thjey created it and they chose not to spread it around.
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

It's not confirmation, but there is some support at a NY Times blog: http://mediadecoder....-and-news-corp/

There were indications on Monday afternoon that the two companies might be close to an agreement, or at least a short-term extension, but they declined to comment on the record.

I did this dance last year with Dish. I bailed and went to Directv. I'm still glad I did as I feel its a better service with better picture quality.

I'm not doing it again, and I really hate that they're trying to make this "my" problem.

No, it's not "my" problem. Fox, and whoever else...if you want me to watch your programming, make sure my carrier has it. Period. This is YOUR problem...not mine....nor my carrier.

If YOU can't make sure my carrier has your channels, I'll just watch something else. Sure, there's a couple shows and channels I'll miss....but, there's plenty of other stuff to watch.

I know others will not feel this way and present arguments for whose fault this is, who is right/wrong, who should do what....but it doesn't matter to me. I'm not switching carriers again. This crap will just keep happening, year after year. So, I'm leaving it to the content providers. You want me to watch your stuff, make sure DirecTV has it.


Nice post Joe. I do agree it's not my problem!

No mention of the extension in this latest multichannel article [link]

Both DirecTV and Fox said that negotiations continue, but that as of 4:49 p.m. ET no progress had been made.

A Fox spokesperson said they were still "hopeful for a positive resolution."
