No. But, I will drop Directv if they do not add ALL the shoping channels in HD before Black Friday.

No I won't. Will miss the couple of programs we watch on FX though.

This should be a poll.

Regardless, my answer is no.

I would pick Justified up a few months later on blu-ray.

No, unless it really affects my NHL center ice.

Absolutely not. I'll download American Horror Story if the Fox channels are dropped. It's the only show I watch regularly on any of the Fox networks now.

No plans on leaving if it's pulled. Not enough of a reason for me to do so.

If they stop carrying Fox news, I'll sign another 2 year agreement.

No way. The only Fox channel I would miss is Fox Sports South, and most SEC games are on ESPN now, anyway.

Hopefully they will work it out but III don't spend more than 1-2 hrs of week watching their programming. Now if the Astros could put a team together, I might watch more.

The only place I could switch to is Cable... DTV minus some Fox channels is still a better option than Comcast.

So no.. not leaving DirecTV either way.

Nope, won't leave. If they do drop the channels I'll be able to watch what I need from other sources like Internet streaming.

In theory, if the Fox locals left and the Fox feeds on NFL ST left, and I couldn't get OTA via a DIRECTV DVR, and Comcrap suddenly got all those things, I might leave. But I doubt it. :)

As far as the current channels being discussed? Not a chance.

Cheers,
Tom

I'll never leave D as their service has been the best since day one.

I'm actually getting tired of hearing about this type of thing happening and it's been on almost every carrier. Who's next?? Maybe if D stands up and says, "Fine, we'll go on with you and see how your advertising dollars get affected without 19 million subscribers" then maybe in the future, the networks will be a little more willing to work with carriers.

No way. Only channel out of the bunch I watch is FX..sometimes Fox Movie if there's something on. However, DirecTV provides hundreds of other channels to choose from in the interim. Like Versus...it will come back (but not like G4).
