I saw one article where it stated DirecTV had the option to add them later this year, then I saw where Swanni said it was not part of the deal. But, over the years, we have all learned that Swanni information is not always the most reliable source.
As far as I am concerned they could have left all 26 off the air and given us Epix.
DirecTV customer since 1995.

Epix is a plus channel for me, mostly movies, HBO is a epic fail ever since they started doing so many series.
I stopped watching AMC years ago when they started putting 2 tons of commercials in 1 ton rated movie.
I have no interest in paying for HBO, Cinemax, SHowtime, or Starz and have not done so for many years.

I'll repeat what I posted before about Swanni. He's a lot like Dr. Phil. The two of them know everything there is to know about absolutely nothing.

My 5 friends an relatives got calls from Directv today begging them to come back to Directv now that the Viacom deal was settled so they were offered free equipment upgrades i think HR34's and Whole Home and 3 free months of all programming to get them back before there dish network installs and a bunch of other free programming so i guess they did get something good out of leaving directv over the Viacom dispute if Directv's going to offer all of this I cant blame people to take it to come back.If I didnt have to wait for a month before I could have left and they offered it all to me I would take the deal to stay a little longer to.

Between now and when this latest agreement nears expiration, perhaps they can agree on how many Viacom channels/'networks' D* actually carries!
From Viacom's blog: "All 26 Viacom networks, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, BET, CMT, Logo, Spike, TV Land, MTV2, VH1, VH1 Classic, Palladia, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, TeenNick, Tr3s and Centric, will return to DIRECTV’s channel lineup immediately."
and DirectvPromise: "DIRECTV has reached a new long-term agreement with Viacom to restore 17 channels (including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, BET, Spike, CMT, TV Land and ten other channels) that Viacom had taken away from DIRECTV customers on July 10. Viacom has returned all affected networks."

Googling around, it looks like Epix makes a little less than $3 on average per sub (per month).
$500mm would have put it at about $2/sub a month for DTV.

OK all... I think this thread has served its purpose. If you have any compelling reason to post here, please do but otherwise I would be fine with this thread fading into the past.
