When you have nothing clever to say, you can always invoke Hitler . .snore.
"As a rule, the idea of direct subscriptions terrifies the cable industry. Distributors fear it because it enables cord-cutting; media companies loathe it because any move toward disintermediation threatens their current model, in which consumers have to pay for channels they don’t want in order to get the ones they do want."
I like that a lot!:lol:
Sorry to put you to sleep. I'll wake you when DirecTV adds the poison of Glenn Beck to the channel lineup.
Since it is a news channel without expensive programming (such as Hollywood productions and sports), I can easily see DirecTV carrying this.
I don't however see them carrying it in HD. Just like Dish, they might carry it.... but in SD only.
Godwin'd in only 19 posts. Not bad, not bad at all...
I say add it. 10% of the population will believe the politics on the channel. We can watch them walk together off the Cliff of Reason only to drown in the Sea of Conspiracy.
I don't have a problem with anybody watching the channel. I just hope they don't actually believe what is said on the network. I'd like it if they also watched Rachael Maddow later that evening. Don't believe Beck. Don't believe Maddow. Believe what rings true to you. It's when you watch - and believe - only one ideology that you get yourself in trouble.
Then so is the National Enquirer. The Onion has more facts than Mr. Beck.
In fact, Fox got rid of him because he wasn't news enough for them. Ha!
Me too. Where do I sign up. They can use the money to get the PAC 12 network.
OK... take 2.
I remind you of forum rules:
"(t) No posts or threads of a controversial nature are allowed such as those involving politics, sex, race and religion."
This is not a thread about political contributions or the political leanings of any channel. This is a thread about a channel that was IPTV-only, and will be picked up by DISH, and so far not by DIRECTV.
If all you have is politics to talk about, the thread will be closed and infractions issued.
I have deleted several posts, and I expect that depending on who you are you are thinking either "Why was my post deleted" or "why wasn't HIS post deleted." I had to draw a line somewhere. I believe in free and polite expression within forum rules and I really want to give every thread a chance.
So, moving forward,
This is not a thread about politics.
This is not a thread about the President or his opponent.
This is not a thread about any news channel or their politics.
This is not the place to insult each other.
Be polite, stay on topic, and have fun.
Wow Stuart. I just clicked the "page 2" button, and suddenly the thread is down to only one page long! That's never happened before. I agree, it was getting too off-topic political back and forth.
I seriously doubt anyone knows the answer to the question if/when will DirecTV add the Blaze channel. Since Dish is adding it, DirecTV just *might*, or maybe not... (shrug)
D* should add it a'la carte like the Baby First channel.
He has more paying subscribers than CNN has viewers.
Didn't we read somewhere that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990 ? I don't remember ever reading he denied it...
Mind you I'm not accusing him of it, I'm just asking questions here
Lots of psychotic people have enjoyed great popularity at times. Manson, Hitler, etc.
Careful where you're going with that.
Hard to not be political when discussing a political channel. The mere desire by the OP for the channel is a political statement in itself so by strict adherence to the rules, the thread should. It exist at all.
If everyone stays personally civil, it seems that the hard fast rule on no politics should not be enforced on discussion of political channels. We discuss Doctor Who on bbca. We discuss South Park for Comedy Central. We discuss the Lakers.... In other words, we discuss the content of the channel.
Or just delete all threads on all political channels. They violate the rule.
And isn't cnn.com the most popular news site? Ironic huh?
What's next, the Rush Limbaugh channel?
Political extremism of any flavor isn't really my cup of tea.
Beck may not be my exact cup of tea, but it doesn't bother me if someone wants his channel on DirecTV. Nor does it bother me if someone wants Al Gore's network on, and we wouldn't even be able to type these posts without his Internet invention, after all
If you're a lefty, and a lot of people here apparently are, it would do well to be more tolerant of conservatives; plus you wouldn't come off like such a hypocrite. I mean you'd seriously drop DirecTV if the "hateful" Beck gets on some tiered channel somewhere? You might check yourself for some of that "hate."
Free expression and ideas, even from people you don't agree with IS A GOOD THING, not to mention there are very few mainstream outlets for conservatives right now. So Beck gets a channel, get over it. I hope Beck comes to DirecTV--I'd check it out. To the original poster, I think Beck does Dish commercials, so I think the deal is pretty exclusive.
