The list goes on as DirecTV subscribers are wondering where are their favorite channels.
A dispute with Viacom led to DirecTV to pull MTV, Comedy Central, Spike TV, Nickelodeon, VH1 and others off the air until the dispute is resolved.
Here's what's going on, according to The Boston Herald:
Both sides blamed each other for the channels coming off of the satellite broadcaster on Tuesday evening. Viacom said DirecTV dropped the channels without warning. DirecTV countered that its hand was forced by Viacom.
“DirecTV executives reached out to Viacom both yesterday and today with a new proposal and a request to keep the channels on while we continued to negotiate, but never heard back, so DirecTV had to comply with their demand to take the channels down or face legal action,” the company said in a statement.
Will this result in customers paying more or leaving or just waiting until the channels come back? Tell us what you think.
