DIRECTV dropping OANN?

How could you bow down to the WOK cancel culture demands to dropping OANN?  They do not lie!  The "big lie of the 2020 election" is absolutely true. There is mountains of evidence of the election steal. All the misinformation comes from liberals not conservatives!  My husband and I will be dropping Directv if you go thru this in April. I will convince all our friends and family to do likewise. This is an attack on freedom of speech and our country. Shame on you!!!!

Now that Directv is part of AT&T I'd like to see One America News get added to the Directv channel lineup! Its been on U-Verse for over a year now and has become very popular there.

Yes please add this great news channel. You already carry other channels including Newsmax and the foreign owned aljazeera network, so why not an American owned network?

This is in high demand. Be sure to also post on DirecTV's Facebook & Twitter to show the demand for this channel.

I am in the process of changing over from Uverse to DirecTV. I noticed that OANN is not in the listing. It is the best unbiased news network on TV. Since AT&T and DirecTV are together I really want DirecTV to carry OANN.

If oann is not offered by a carrier my money will not be offered to them either! Direct TV needs to add one American news network and att should be ashamed of themselves for pushing customers to them

I have the Choice package, which is supposed to get Channel 347, One America News Network.  When I go to that channel, it says I need to upgrade.  That is crap.  What is wrong with you people?

ONN is in the packs it negotiated for, for what directv was willing to pay

 

please contact the station and ask them to allow it to be included in lesser packs at the same cost

This is a forum intended for discussions about AT&T's products and services. About your concern I advice you to contact DirecTV at 1-800-531-5000. Absolutely ONN is included in Choice package.

I would prefer sending an email but this might be the best avenue to share this feedback... we've been customers of AT&T and DirecTV for a very long time. I've just found out that One America News is being provided a platform by AT&T/DirecTV to monetize and spread false, conspiratorial, anti-democracy views that are doing actual real harm to our nation and our society, in general.
I IMPLORE AT&T to remove OAN from the DirecTV platform and to disavow the content already spread and apologize for providing OAN this opportunity. If action isn't taken, we will be closing our wireless and DirecTV accounts. I realize we are a drop in the bucket, but I also am pretty sure we aren't alone.

Just because you don't like OAN doesn't mean you can dictate that nobody should be able to watch it. I'm sure lots of OAN fans would love to see DirecTV drop CNN and MSNBC. To each his own. If you don't like it, don't watch it. It's that simple.

You can hide the channel by going Menu>settings>scroll over to "Favorite Channels."  Etc...If you uncheck that channel number, It will never come up in your channels listing for viewing.  Will that work for you???

Being an ACE, I try and help others, being a Directv customer like you.

I will be cancelling my AT&T service and encouraging others to do the same. It has recently been proven that AT&T is financially backing OAN (One America Network), an extremist right wing (Edited per community guidelines) network that supported the insurrection on January 6th. This company is turning its back on Democracy and is in favor (supporting) of a known fascist organization.

I recently learned DTV is canceling OANN, i HOPE this is NOT true.  It's the ONLY channel I watch on regular TV.  When it goes, i go.  Why are we discussing removal of points of view and honest journalism.  It says volume about what is ostensibly a 'woke' culture at DTV.

OAN is a trustworthy news outlet that backs up their statements with data.  CNN ratings tanked becaused they are caught in lie after lie.  OAN is disliked because they expose corruption and lies with evidence.

While I hate having to see ads for often offensive shows every time I pause and try to read or re-hear what’s on the screen - it’s getting to be such a turnoff to be sold at every turn….

Lately it seems that OAN & Newsmax won’t pause for more than a minute or 2, while the cooking channel, mtv etc will pause for a very long time. Seems to be an intentional DirecTV algorithm designed to keep down (Edited per community guidelines) channels? We already pay WAY too much to watch so few channels - censorship prevailing again?

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled Why are only newsmax & OAN not pausing for more than a minute, yet all other channels stay paused?

What do you mean by "pausing"? Commercial breaks during shows? If so, DIRECTV has no control over the commercial length that they air, this is controlled by the bigger companies like Viacom. Also this a public forum and we are customers just like you.

I think they are posting about the paused ads that are downloaded and start after one minute on those 2 channels.  AFAIK all channels are suppose to start after 1 minute.

As far as I can tell these "pause ads" appear on all of my channels after 30 seconds or so.

When I searched for NEWSMAX by browsing the list of channels, it wasn't even showing up in the channel guide! I had to type the number of the newsmax channel to get NEWSMAX, then when on it, set it to autorecord. Now, DirecTV said Saturday that it has informed One American Network's OAN’s owner, Herring Networks. Inc., that it will no longer carry its two channels when their contract expires. Is DirecTV trying to silence half of America's voices and news?

Asstounding how honest journalism finds its way into the bubble narrative of the left, to the point where is must be removed. Avoiding watching the channel is not enough, it must be totally eradicated so the pearl clutching can stop. OANN does not spin the news, they just report the facts.  Too bad if the facts destroy your jaded interpretation of the world.

I read the same article.  It's doesn't appear to be a contract dispute but a decision on DirectTV`s part.  If it does happen in April, I'll drop my service and switch to a different provider or just save my money and go streaming. 

@Ludwick577 - take you partisan politics elsewhere, your no better than the ones you complain about.

As soon as I can get Dish network out here to install I am dropping these facist pig censors at ATT/DirectTV.  I don't watch OAN, but ATT's decision to censor (Edited per community guidelines) view points is unacceptable to me.  Also switching my phone service.

My service will be cancelled when OAN is cancelled.  Have a premium package but only watch about 5 of the 95+ channels.  Can get streaming services for less than a quarter of what I pay now.  Probably should tell DirectTV to pound sand now...

It seems they are but will hide behind "contract renewal".  Apparently it is not able to be discussed on here as another thread on it has been closed.  They can bury their head or they can pay attention the voice of their customer.

Threads are closed when they wander off into political rants and name calling.  If you can voice your opinion that you want the channel to stay, or that you're glad that it's gone without slinging mud, then your comments are welcome.

Call it "canceling" or not "renewing", either way DirecTV is not making OAN available. Therefore, I will not be "renewing" my subscription. But take comfort, DirecTV, I'm not canceling my service.

If they also start censoring and drop OAN, I also will be cancelling. Can we have nothing in this world that is not a political activist?   We only watch a few channels anyway. It will probably save me money.

Nobody here knows why. Given AT&T's political bent, it's more likely a financial decision rather than a political decision. Of course, things could change between now and April when their contract would need to be renewed.

To Whom it may concern,

I have read that your company is planning on dropping One American News Network in April because of OANN reporting false information on Covid 19, I’m assuming you are also planning on dropping CNN & MSNBC because of the same reason? If this is not the case, please consider this letter as my notice that I will be canceling my contract with Direct TV.

Thank You

Whoever is reporting that as a reason is only speculating. Directv has only stated they are not renewing the contract, they have not provided a reason. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out, though. It’s not just false information on covid.

Actually could care less about their reasoning.  I've read, in reliable sources, that they are being pressured by a "couple" special interest groups. Irrelevant.  This person, me, will leave Direct TV should they cave into the anti free speech, left leaning, fear mongering ideologs that are trying to shut down anyone who may disagree with their point of view. Shameful. Anti American nonsense. OANN...the ONLY place I go for news.
