"This just in, Viacom fires Jon Stewart for negative comments he made about the company......."
ROTFLMAO if they did that they may as well put a for sale sign ot the company
Audience Network announced "The Daily Show"
for all the talk about how popular Nickelodeon is for Viacom, the Daily Show and Colbert Report are HUGE draws ratings wise....I can imagine that there are going to be a lot of advertisers making phone calls tonight/tomorrow morning....
Anyone got a link to a torrent or you tube of the daily show? I can't find one so far. Been looking. piratebay doesn't have one up yet. Maybe it might take some time.
DirectTv plays hardball as does Viacom. I shed no tears for anyone. Neither DTV or Viacom has exclusive use of the Darth Vader Mask. The only winners in the end will be DirectTv and Viacom. Customers will eventually see price creep either by overt increase in fees or by elimination of channels to offset the costs. The token free channels added for the remainder of the month don't benefit those with the high dollar packages like myself. DirectTV becomes more expensive every year. DTV's key advantage is its wider coverage and availability than FIOS.
Fios has a crappy GUI. direct tv has the best GUI from what i can see. I've never used dish. But just the thought of having to reinstall everything, all the multiroom dvr systems, all the programs i set to record.. way to much. I'd rather wait a few week, then have to re do all that.
Plus like i said i HATE the fios gui. And the comcast one. It's not even a GUI. More like a DOS interface from the 80s.
daily show is up on pirate bay. downloading it now. that's right viacom. I'll get your damn programming no matter what. And i don't even have to watch the commercials this way.
:'( i cant view it on cell phone
Someone tell me what john said
He said "Anyone remember Oprah?" "Three days and is was 'who is this Ellen chick'"
Said people will find other things to watch or do, read a book, have a conversation...
Then said even his 8 yr old could download the shows using torrents
Only old people are missing out on the show
Then they went to a DirecTv household, where John Oliver attempted to give them a play by play of what was going on, on the show...except the couple started talking and being intimate, and ignored the "TV".
If u have amazon instant video on any of your streaming devices they will have The Daily Show up by tomorrow afternoon. I'm gonna watch it on my roku player
Viacom is getting their a** kicked. Make a deal, boys. Find a way to save face (toss in extra rights or something), and make a deal.
The Jon Stewart Clip
Ha! Thanks for sending the link.
Yes thank you. Right now its to bufferd fir me to really enjoy but i got the punch line
find statements like this amusing - I don't watch it so I don't care - remember the next channels that may have the same issue are ones that you DO watch, then what would your comments be.
It should not matter if you watch it or not, it is the principle of the thing. I can say the exact same thing about the dedicated sports channesl, have not watched anything on a sports channel since I got satillite around 1996 and never watched it on cable OTA prior to that date, so basicly can say the same exact thing about sports channels.
Ala-carte channels are the same as the new shared data plans for cell service - be careful what you ask for, you might get it and then realize it is not exactly what you thought you would get - carriers and signal providers are out to make a profit, and will price to get that profit, so instead of saving you money they make more money.
Total baloney. See: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=3054570#post3054570
And even if the bogus "only 20%" B.S. was accurate how well would DirecTV do without 20% of its customers? Or 20% of its profits? Is that minority important then?
Is it over? Really totally ........
I hate Directv right now.
"UPDATE: E! picks up Jon Stewart". LOL
Just watched the clip, funny.
