    Does anyone have any information about them replacing WeatherNation? That's the channel I have on the most, I'm a little upset about that.

    They did sign a long term deal back in 2014, but in the time since they made that deal they started streaming online for free with their various OTT apps for Android, iOS, Roku, PS4, Xbox and other platforms, which probably didn't help their case come renewal time. Stations that stream online for free rarely get carried unless they pay for their place on the lineup or are a P/I channel that's carried to fulfil a quota.

    Accuweather went live also but for some reason DirecTV did not add it to DirecTV Now even though that they removed WeatherNation from it

    I would think an internet-driven TV platform would have absolutely no value or use for a weather channel.

    DirecTV would have to be idiotic to spend money for carriage for one on DirecTV Now.

    “Lakers broadcasts had 12 times as many Spanish-speaking viewers on SportsNet than on Deportes during the 2017-18 season,” the company said.

    Yep.

    The only way that channel would have been a success is if it also had carried the Dodgers games.. then it would have had a real chance... but then Hey, that means DIRECTV and everyone else will save a buck a month now with this channel gone!

    I was looking at all the sub-channels in my area and a lot of them stink anyway and would be a waste of bandwidth. So I was thinking could DirecTV just carry the popular ones? Maybe they could just carry METV, Heroes and Icons, CoziTV, AntennaTV, Bounce, Comet, ThisTV, GritTV and Buzzer? I guess those are the most poplar ones out of all the available sub-channels? However, in areas that already have METV as a main station they could just use that and use the METV subchannel for areas that don't have METV as a main station. Or would all those stations might be considered niche channels and DTV still wouldn't carry them and consider them a waste of bandwidth?

    I also now think that the UVerseTV channels that DTV doesn't have are not really worth adding to DTV after looking at those again. I guess some DTV customers would still probably like DTV to add the PAC 12 and Epix that UVerseTV has?

    That's the issue with these types of discussions. For me every subchannel you listed stinks. I don't want any of them. the 'stinks' monicker is going to be person to person. The only channel I wish they had, but understand completely why they don't (and even support their position) is PAC 12.
