The logical solution is to remove the channels with the lowest number of viewer.
It can't be that hard for DirecTV to figure this out.

As for G4TV.... they still got a lot of viewers, especially since the female hosts
started showing a lot more cleavage... :)

NFL Network, College Sports TV, ESPN News, FreeSpeech TV, ShopAtHomeNetwork, The Water Channel, G4, MTV and MTV2 could ALL be dropped and I'd never even notice....

BUT...if i lose my DVR ability, I'm jumping to DirecTV in a heartbeat!

Ack! I watch ESPN News all the time, so I don't have to watch the unbearable SportsCenter on ESPN. NFL Network now has a purpose since it will show real live games, and CSTV has some decent small college stuff.

But I agree with dropping FreeSpech, SAH (think this one is already gone), MTVs. Let's drop Oxygen, Lifetime Movies, TV Guide channel, and Lime while we're at it. :)

[quote name='Adam Richey']One channel that really needs to go...MSNBC. I mean seriously. Who watches that anymore? Hasn't NBC Universal considered pulling the plug before? /QUOTE]

I believe they've considered cutting the cord before (I think thats why they bought out microsoft's share of the station) but then again, GE may pull the plug on NBCU and sell it

Hows CNN International? How and where do u get it?


I don't know I Never watch it, I have it on digital cable. As far as I know, Time Warner Cable is the only MSO with CNN IN in the US.

Me too. I sent them an email and told them they had lost a loyal viewer (I'm sure they lost sleep over that:grin: ). Haven't watched it sense.

They need to ditch G4 and bring in The Anime Network to replace it. G4 brings no value to Directv at all.



Oh God yes...I could only dream such a dream oh so, so sweet!

I would have agreed about G4 until they started showing Arrested Development. They need to lose i. They show paid programming like 85% of the time.
