Bloomberg: DirecTV to drop One America News Network in April.

quote:

DirecTV, one of the largest U.S. pay-TV providers, plans to drop One America News Network, dealing a major blow to the conservative channel that's been criticized for spreading misinformation and had a loyal fan in former President Donald Trump. The satellite-TV provider has notified OAN's owner, Herring Networks Inc., that it plans to stop carrying the company's two channels when their contract expires. Herring Networks also owns AWE, a lifestyle channel that stands for "A Wealth of Entertainment."

quote:


"We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires," the company said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News. DirecTV's contract with Herring Networks expires in early April, according to a person familiar with the matter. Herring Networks didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.


quote:

Critics have called on TV distributors to stop carrying the network. In a November blog post, John Bergmayer, legal director at the advocacy group Public Knowledge, said that "OAN's support for the 'Big Lie' that the 2020 election was stolen and the fact that it's consistently giving airtime to conspiracy theories and misinformation on COVID-19, moves it from a participant in the marketplace of ideas to a peddler of toxic lies."

I can get 225 channels plus NFL Sunday ticket at both my houses for $55 per house a month. No internet available at one house.

There's hardly even one channel with anything worth watching though.

You can get OAN online. Newsmax too. No need to pay for cable or sat.

I call bullshitee on this lib. I dealt with dickTV for 20+ years and they constantly raised the monthly rates.
You may have agreed to a "low monthly rate" but rest assured these commies are raising your rate as I type this. So, check your rate lib and good luck with dickTV.

It's pretty easy to get a discounted rate every year. My current discount is $70 a month for 12 months and free Sunday Ticket. $110 a month inc 3 dvrs, fees, and taxes.

No you don’t. The 225 channel package price is 86 dollars a month, during the promo, without Sunday ticket.

It’s over 135 afterwards.

Why must people freaking lie?? When you get busted you are in zero position to make any point forward.

AT&T-owned Warner Media (which also owns CNN) did this. No surprise at all.
