Waitasec.... does one of the Viacom channels show that Snookie show from the shores of Jersey?
PULL DIRECTV PULL THE CHANNEL!!!!!!!
Im talking with them right now, and Im wondering what the hell is going on? I think we may be getting credits apalooza which would be nice for people like me that are trying to compensate for Sunday Ticket.
Does anyone have a complete list of the 26 channels?
That is a little greedy on behalf of Viacom. They want a 30% increase and people that were lucky to get an increase in their pay, maybe got 3%. Most fixed or retires incomes that have a cost of living clause, might get a 3% increase in their checks. I would be glad to give them 30%, increase, if I got a 30% increase in my pay.
Always find these spats interesting. Shame that there's not some way to make the content provider pricing more transparent to the end consumer to let the public decide what's a fair price.
And with the newer technologies they may be haggling over some other terms as well.
Sometime between 2003 and 2005, there was a massive no-holds-barred fight between Dish and Viacom where there were crawls in the middle of the screen followed by Dish Network quickly blacking it out. It was very annoying for those of us with DirecTV and other providers.
Of course, I would remember this... I was a moderator back then.
Yea, all that reality programming and cartoon stuff is expensive
And Colbert and Stewart are ALWAYS on vacation anyway.
I really don't think DirecTV carries 26 of their channels..
I am coming up with: MTV, Nick, Comedy Central, BET, VH1, Spike, TV Land, CMT, Logo, MTV 2, VH1 Classic, Centric, Palladia, Nick Jr, Nicktoons, TeenNick.
It looks like they are starting to put Alert channels under each channel in the guide so I'll scroll through and see if I missed any.
Edit: Missed MTV t3es
Theirs also the Viacom owned local channels.
I called a CSR from America amazingly, and she said D* has a 99 percent success rate with this etc etc. I pretty much wasnt angry, but I was irritated by the lack of PR on both sides about this. I mean when stuff like this occurs, you get a couple of weeks notice not 24 hours.
Please drop these channels and lower my bill. At least give me a chance to drop their stuff and lower my bill. Go ahead Viacom, make my day.
Mike White is on 299-1. I wonder when he made that video?
It had to be fairly recent. And likely not 20 minutes ago recent. So.. it sounds like they have been working with Viacom for a while and had a feeling it might come down to this?
The directvpromise.com site still doesn't have the new video or any other information on it yet.
All due respect to those that don't like viacom channels - viacom properties basically are "cable". This isn't FX or VS or G4. These re some pretty serious heavy hitter tv properties. I can't imagine not having access to them.
Btw LUV hie mie white days this is about a la carte. Haha. Yeah right.
Mike white is wrong, but your right on your first point. I mean MTV,Nick, and VH1 along with BET are highly rated channels and this if it happens could be something that drives subscribers away from D*.
Or $150/mo bills might drive them away. Pick your poison.
I really can't see this going on for more than a couple of days, if the channels are even dropped at all.
I think DISH dropped them for, what, 2 or 3 days in 2004 before they got everything worked out?
Personally I already pat that. My choice. But certainly won't continue to pay that with such a sizable chunk of cable missing from my line up.
You can run but you can't hide forever from higher tv bills - even if you cut the cord. Piper is going to get paid sooner or later.
