    poor ABC... aw....

    So, ABC (now Disney) is having a fight with DirecTV. Some kind of contract dispute, they probably want to charge too much to carry their programming.

    Whatever it is, ABC has been running little ads under their Primetime programs, encouraging people to call Direct TV and tell them they want to keep watching their favorite ABC programs.

    So what I did is, I called DirecTV, and I told them I never want to see another ABC program as long as I live, and I told them they would be doing me a great favor if they were too screwed Disney as hard as they possibly could. The black gentleman on the other end started laughing, then he said I'll make sure to report your input to our management.

    They're posting the number regularly on the Disney channels now, if you'd like to call....

    I worked a few years for DirecTv, their biggest dispute, the one that hurt them the most, was when they dropped the Weather Channel over a costs dispute. OMG, the backlash that we received was epic. People love to watch catastrophic disaster as they approach, like a hurricane, and as they unfold.

    There are people that leave their TV on the Weather Channel 24/7, they love seeing others in misery for some reason.

    That being said, I would never bother with calling them because there is nothing any network or cable company can air that I can not see for free half an hour after it hits the air.

    Can you watch OAN for free in real-time or near-real-time?

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    I have Dish..... same thing, local channels have gone bye bye.

    I'm pissed, though, because I've been watching the same two daytime shows for 25-30 years and, they were coming to a crucial point in the storylines and, I turn to the channel one day and it says......"Takedown..... Meredith Corp "

    I did call the number provided, I also sent emails.... mostly because, I'm now paying for a service I'm no longer receiving....my Dish package included local channels, I'm no longer receiving local channels so, I think they need to lower my bill, to reflect that.

    I get no response, not that I expected one, I'd switch to DirecTV, but, it's the same thing with them..... they're all greedy crooks.

    That tactic is commonly used against Direct TV.

    When I had Direct, I saw those messages pop up every few months or so.

    But, you will NOT be getting "Disney" on your Direct TV. Not without paying extra, as it will be a streaming service like Netflix, and Amazon.....

    As for ABC (as well as NBC, CBS and Fox Television...)....they are in their last days. They simply do not fit into the new "system" of entertainment.
