I think the issue was CBS and Viacom merged. YTTV had the CBS channels but not the Viacom ones. Upon the new contract, it could have just said sayonara to all of it, but likely wanted CBS as it's one of the four wheels with ABC, NBC, and FOX that it already has offered. Honestly though, it could have just dumped it and given an email notification to its subscribers to consider an antenna or just add CBS All Access for viewers to continue receiving CBS. My take is the new Viacom deal likely added some price increase but $15 hike seems like the $49.99 price point wasn't profitable or borderline even before accounting for ViacomCBS. As for METV and H&I, both are owned by Weigel but distributed by affiliates. With METV in particular, it's on full power stations as well and Weigel isn't very supportive of a national feed. I think Dish carriage is restrictive. On the other hand, it seems getTV and LightTV, owned by SONY and MGM respectively, are more supportive of streaming providers carrying a national feed. INSP has a number of westerns and is more traditional cable network. Starz/Encore has a lot of westerns as well. INSP was added on frndlyTV earlier this year, and just got added on Philo. Philo added getTV too.
