I saw that to.

No fricking way.

My neices and nephews watch HOURS of Nickelodeon per day, I love South Park on CC, and MTV has a few I watch.

I call BS.

I'm guessing someone hacked it.

No reports of anything about a Viacom/DTV dispute, and none of the other channels listed are showing this ticker, only Nickelodeon.

DirecTV to Drop 26 Viacom Channels

quote:

This evening, DirecTV provided Viacom with a counter proposal that included a lower rate than Viacom receives from any other distributor in the industry. With this offer, our negotiations have reached an impasse. This means that, as of tomorrow night, nearly 20 million DirecTV subscribers will be without entertainment from the programmer they watch most. A total of 26 Viacom channels, including Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, BET, VH1, CMT, Spike TV, TV Land and more won’t be available.

They better work this out quick since anyone under 20 is going to riot without Viacom channels and go to Dish. Plus I'm betting this is more Viacom's fault than DTV, since they are run by the biggest most controlling and corrupt dicks in the industry.

Same here.





If true, the only one I'd give a flip about would be VH1 and even with that said, I don't watch it a whole lot. Just old videos back when videos were made.

For Christ's sake, stop being greedy.

I know they work it out most of the time but I haven't seen Attack of the Show in over a year because direct tv couldn't make a deal with g4

G4 isn't as big of a sacrifice as say Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and MTV is for most families. They'll have to work this out or millions will switch to Dish.
