19 channels total including CMT, MTV, VH1, Nick, AMC (this one has me pissed cause Hell on Wheels starts next month iirc) and several others. I'm pissed.

Yeah, I have never seen channels actually pulled.

I'm watching last nights Tosh right now and it has Two Viacon info bars scrolling and one Direct Tv bar scrolling countering what they are saying.

Viacom is the one to blame here. They want to raise their rates on a package deal which includes some crap channels no one watches. I am completely fine with what DirecTV is doing if it means keeping the rates down and not passed on to the consumers. ESPN is the worst of them all when it comes to raising rates to the providers.

Just looked at this shite. Dudes nose is fricked up.

Eta: I want an ala carte option NOW. I only watch a dozen channels or so, but they put key channels (to me) in the higher tier packages. Ridiculous.

Call in and get a discount.

I called today. First offered $5 over 3 months. Said "No, I still want to cancel." Then offered Sunday Ticket for $99. I said "No, I would rather have $ off." Then, offered $25 off one time but I couldn't have that AND ST. I said "I'll take the $25 off."

I'm calling tomorrow to get ST for $99.

Made my credit go up to $372.

Been through this with each provider. It will work out in a few weeks. Now in the future if it comes down to College Football and the Tigers...

I was reading on another forum that people were getting several different kinds of credits; I think it depends how long you have been a customer. Also read that a deal is expected to be done by Friday night so the channels should be back. Read on a forum so take it for what it's worth - jack shite.

Link?


It's pretty easy to get a discount. Just claim that that was your main entertainment. Deny the fist offer or two.

Like today I took the $25. Tomorrow, I'll say "I was offered $99 ST, I changed my mind and would like that."

I'm drunk so please forgive my ignorance, but what does ST stand for? I've been cable and satellite free for about 4 months, but I was considering getting directTV since I'd get NFL sunday ticket free. However, I was looking forward to having Comedy Central again and this situation has really changed my mind.


Don't post your account info, if I sign up I'll start a thread asking for referral numbers

That's the link to the forum - people talking about the credits they got. Somewhere in there is what I was talking about in regards to the deal being done Friday.
