Directv posted on the directvpromise website

you can get new original episodes of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” on Hulu.com, likely as soon as tomorrow afternoon.

They usually have the previous days episodes on http://www.thedailys...m/full-episodes (and http://www.colbertna.../full-episodes/ if you are also interested in that).

The only other shows I watch on those channels are the weekend powerblock shows on Spike. I *think* those are all online over at http://www.powerblocknetwork.com too, but I haven't had the time to find out if they've posted the new ones yet.

Edit: I forgot about Tosh and Workaholics, I watch those too, but they will the re-ait at some point, they rerun them so much.

According to the article you quoted it's also available if you have Amazon Prime. Thing is, DirecTV is eventually going to end up paying so they might as well just give in now.


The dispute will be resolved eventually, and DirecTV will end up paying more than they were under the old contract, but DirecTV will not end up paying as much as Viacom was asking for when Viacom pulled their channels from DirecTV. There is absolutely no reason for DirecTV to give in now.

According to this article, you won't see them on DirecTV, and you won't see them streaming online either:

Viacom, DirecTV fight: Protracted battle possible

This week's blackout has already prompted a flood of online venting from frustrated DirecTV customers, but the stakes will rise on Monday. That's when two of Viacom's most popular shows -- "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" -- return from vacation and start airing fresh episodes.

Viacom usually streams those episodes on its website just a few hours after they air, allowing anyone -- even those without a pay-TV subscription -- to watch them for free. This week, however, it yanked of its most popular streams offline after DirecTV pointed out that its blacked-out customers could go watch Viacom shows on the Web.

"We've temporarily slimmed down our offerings, as DirecTV markets them as an alternative to having our networks," a Viacom spokesman told CNNMoney. "The online content is intended to serve as a complimentary marketing tool for our partners."


If it was meant to be complimentary, then it'd also require an authorization, just like HBO GO.

If they wait long enough, then they will end up paying less overall because of all the months they wont be paying for the service.

The Daily Show is returning tonight.
What are the odds us DirecTV people will get to see the new episodes this week?!
DirecTV & Viacom better get this resolved NOW!


Anyone can watch The Daily Show on their web site. When ever they have the extended interviews, I see them on the web site.

Good. Now there is absolutely no reason for DirecTV to bring back the Viacom Channels. That was the only show I ever watched of theirs.

Andy Griffith re-runs on TVland? I can watch that a million places online, if I cared to.

Good deal.

Bye bye ViaCom! :D

There's also colbertnation.com, for streaming of The Colbert Report (previous day's episode), for anyone who is missing that show too.

Yea, but I'd rather watch it on big TV in HD. Usenet is good for that. :sure:
