    There is a message on channel 248-1 that directs you to OurPromiseToYou.com regarding negotiations with Fox / Newscorp. There are several channels affected, FX, Fox Movie Channel, National Geographic, and some others. :mad:

    I'm surprised Fox News isn't included. I figured that'd be their bargaining chip.

    I bet FNC's carriage deal is with the O&O station's deal. Hopefully that contract is not up for renewal for a few years. Can't say I am upset about losing the potential channels while an agreement is worked on, but never like to see channels pulled over carriage disputes. Seems to be more common nowadays, regardless of the MSO.

    Personally, if I had to give up watching the World Series on Fox for DirecTv to take a stand against this ongoing corporate greed, Id turn it off now.

    I say drop the Fox, add DIY, and some of the other channels we dont have, and let Murdock take the hit, and see how long he likes doing without those 19 million subs.

    You're probably good for next week. Cross your fingers and toes about after that.

    This will get resolved just like it always does. Neither party here wants a service interruption.

    Sometimes you shave to draw a line in the sand. I think that our friends at DIRECTV are right to negotiate hard. If they pay more to the content providers, you'll pay more to DIRECTV.

    Is Fox movie channel HD part of the new deal?
