Didn't we have the same thing with Dish Network a while back?
In any case, I find it completely ironic that a company previously owned by News Corp. is being threatened by News Corp. to pay 40% or else their programming be suspended. I'm not sure which side I'm going with but I'll post back later with my decision.

They're both a bunch of jerks. I can live without either of them. And I do,...
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I can't believe this is happening because I just m,oved to Directv and had to sign a two year contract and this!!!!! Fox is the only channel I watch and I'm so mad!
I remember when this happened with DISH Network last year because I was also working for them back then. Negotiations are irritating and for someone whose favorite channels are affected, it’s more than a little frustrating. I appreciate that DISH was able to sign on a long term agreement with FOX so I don’t have to miss anything that’s on FX or National Geographic right now. I’m not sure that Directv would be able to do the same so if I were in their subscribers’ shoes I would just switch to DISH now.
I watch the channels we will lose about 30% of my TV time. So In fairness, I am sure that Direct TV is going to give us at least a 25% discount for not having these channels. HA_HA Sure

Don't worry, there's at least a large amount of hope that DirecTV and FOX will be able to cut out a deal. I mean look at Dish Network, look at CableVision, look at Time Warner Cable, all of them have been able to cut deals with their companies that they were having content distribution disputes over, so it would be a major surprise if DirecTV took them off forever, but it wouldn't be a surprise if they worked out a deal within the last second or the seconds after DirecTV pulls fox.
The fact that in these economic times a company is threatening to hike prices for there services by 40% is just plain unamerican. Sure they have good programing but not 40% more valuable than in the past. Get a grip Fox, your not that good. Get over yourselves and get some sence as to how you treat your customer base.
The one channel I do watch now there is a dispute are you people serious?? And as far as the 40% increase really is that worth losing customers over because of your own greed. Figure it out soon or I will take Verizon up on their offer..
I can't believe that I won't be able watch American Idol plus a lot of other shows I watch on Fox 13....Seriously....I paid for this channel and I expect to have this channel until my contract is finished.....Isn't that what a contract is for oh yeah I forgot the contract is for Directv only not the customers.
We just switched to direct tv too and also locked into 2 year contract. We watch all the channels they are threatening to cancel. I believe if they can't provide the channels we were promised that should be considered breach of their contract and our monthly bill should be lowered or we should have the option of getting out of our contracts. That would be the fair thing to do but we know that won't happen. The customer usually end up getting screwed.
If DirecTv gets rid of the FOX network than I will get rid of them, fair warning, I've been with DirecTv for atleast 10 yrs but I will draw the line with the FOX network!!!! If they get rid of those channels that Viacom wants them (or us,should I say) to pay alot more for, the only one out of the whole lineup I will miss is TV Land, but FOX is the ONLY news channel that is non-biased and honest!!!! Hasta La Vista Direc Tv!!!!!!!!
I really don't know why directv find it so hard to come in agreement with FOX network I'm sure they know that customers will leave their directv. If I was them I would rethink the dispute. Because if they don't i will leave Directv!
Bunch of freakin jerks directv. I watch fox 60% of the time and now we lose it. I am in a 2yr. contract and right now i am so fed up with this crap that i am just going to pay the fee and cancel my directv. I am really suppose to recomend this to my friends? I want to KEEP MY FRIENDS. No way!!!!!! I am one unhappy camper. I give Directv one finger. (not my thumb)
I am so upset with everyone involved as a person on a fixed income i can't afford anymore for tv.These corporations think we have unlimted resources. Removing fox from there program is a real blow to those of us who watch a majority of our programing from these channels. If i can't get fox I think directv should allow us to discontinue there service without penalty and go where we can get fox network
I thank Fox is getting to big for there own good, Why should we pay for there pleaser ??
Fox leaving Directv? don't let the door hit you in the A?? going out the door!
didnt we go through this once before? ch 31 is a local station and you dont have a right to take it from us--ive been withdirecttv foryears and dont like being forced to choose another media --but if this isnt resilved quickly--i will be forced to thanks for nothing!!
Everyone should step back and relax. The original post was made back in 2011, so there is nothing here to be mad about.
This issue has been resolved. (long ago) If you still have the channels you want, then it was resolved in your favor.
If you do not, then you have already moved on to other programing.
My Bill gets Higher and the Channels are lower,We went through with the Bet network not so long ago I think it is a crying shame to try and take advantage of People like that, The way times are now!
why would you switch ?? FOX is horrible and no one reallty wants it ,much less to have to pay an increase to have something you dont watch....You would be better off buying an enquirer magazine than paying for fox networks...at least everyone knows what that is...they dont misrepresent themselves as news...
