People let their kids watch Nick?  Talk about brain melt.  MTV owned kids network grooming the next generation of mind numb consumers.

Anyone who had Directv can cancel without penalty for breaking their contract from what I'm hearing because of this.. 

They have made the Encore channels free til months end.. also added some Disney channel and are giving MLB leaguepass free for a week. I'm guessing they plan on having this ironed out within the next 6-7 days

And Bling has it right. Couple of months ago when Fox went off for like a week, I didn't lose sleep.

Props to DirecTV.

Those of you sucking on Directvs sach talking about how they are trying to help the consumer need to read this before spouting off.

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-07-10/viacom-says-impasse-means-directv-users-will-lose-26-channels

I have a hatred for directv that is unmatched, they increase and gauge those of us who own businesses and we have no choice but to stick with them because they have eclusive rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket.

Back to topic, they are liars, always have been always will be, Its Billionares fighting Billionares, I say F them all.

the only good thing that comes out of this viacom mess is it doesnt affect my business as no one watches those crap channels, no football no basketball no real sporting events of interest exist on those crappy channels and please dont say UFC, thats far from a sport, the only real UFC fans are kids in there early twenties who barely have two nickels to rub against each other.

So... mafioso... Are you happy with DirectTV?  or Not?  You seem a little vague.

That article does nothing to change my stance.  I find Viacom's excuse funny:  "Only pennies per subscriber".  Bullshit.  And if each one of these companies do that, those pennies per month turn into dollars per month.

As far as your business, I can't speak to that.  But I have been in bars on Sunday that have Sunday ticket and the business it brings in is enormous.  And I am no economics major, but if the cost of Sunday ticket is more than the business it brings in, get rid of it.  You can get every other major sporting event through your local cable company or Dish TV.

Yes, It brings in a-lot of business, but when directv lowers the price for the ticket for residental customers and passes on their savings to businesses by doubling the price from 1096 to 2200 I have the right to be super pissed.

Comcast is pricey, but living in the Philadelphia area they got you by the balls. You HAVE to have Comcast to watch the Flyers, Phillies, and Sixers. But at least you get EVERY channel and dont have to deal with DirectTV's bullshit - your at least getting what you pay for. I used to have direct and they were friggin horrible.

Yes, Once again, Directv put its customers in the middle of there dispute and now that its over, they will take credit for doing the right thing for you not for them but for you.

Billionares vs Billionares with customers in the middle

darn YOU DIRECTV, Cant wait until you lose the sunday ticket to another provider, Lets see how many stick with you after that.
