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!!!!

I have an acct with Directv because they carried OAN.  Since it's a political news station, I am very suspicious of DT's intentions during an election year.  

Bye Directv!

OAN was dropped because the contract expired and was not renewed. This was announced months ago. Not sure why your thread was closed as there is nothing wrong with asking the question but this particular topic has been discussed repeatedly and has gotten overly political on other threads so much that any new threads get closed immediately. I had to re-open to answer but will close again. As for why the contract wasn’t renewed, you’ll need to ask elsewhere as that’s the discussion that gets political.

DTV decided not to renew the contract that ended in April.

They did not take your rights. There is no constitutional or other right that means you must have OANN.

As is their right, AT&T/DirecTV decide to not renew the carriage agreement. They will no longer support OANN financially. This was announced months ago.

If you cannot live and survive without OANN, then you are free to choose another provider that has them. Be aware the choices on that are few.

Pay TV is an entertainment business. There is no obligation or inherent right that you are given any particular channel. AT&T/DirecTV acted within their rights. Yours were not violated in the process, not matter how much you protest and brag about being the "first". Well as thousands/millions were aware within the last few months, you somehow achieved being one of the last to find out until well after the parting of ways completed.

FACT: DIRECTV is being brought to court by OAN for violating FAA rules, participating in partisan politics, and violating their contract agreement.  The complaint is published on the OAN website.  All should read it… it’s eye opening and something the main stream media won’t cover. 

The biggest concern from the many who have canceled DIRECTV as a result is the fact DirecTV profited by carrying OAN but chose to cancel it for politcal purposes.

So, have you considered bringing back One America News yet?  I wonder how many have cancelled their DirecTV subscriptions.  I will be doing so soon if it does not come back on the air.  A letter from fewer than 20 people or groups should not dictate whether you keep a network on the air if it is watched by millions of people who care about the Constitution and following the law.  Your values statement talks about freedom and freedom of the press.  Re-read your Values statement.  Show you believe in it with your actions to bring OAN back on the air.

DTV didn't renew the contract so doubt it will be back.

We all know really why they cancelled the contract. It is playing politics and censorship of 1st Amendment.

Well after two decades cumulatively, I cancelled my direct tv subscription a few days ago. but agreed to let it continue until the end of this month's billing cycle on the 27th, to give me time to find a different service provide.

for those who may be in the same boat. Frontier is carrying OAN & Verizon is their parent company, so they may as well. plus, the app tv service called "Kloud Tv" has OAN as well. 

I have heard reports that the OAN live app is buggy right now. which seems reasonable, since they only had two months' notice that their contract wasn't going to be renewed.

so, by for now direct tv, maybe someday AT&T's financial woes will end up setting you free in a sale or even just end up letting you go back on your own.

AT&T lost my cell phone service years ago because of poor service & high fees.

now they lose my tv too, good riddance. so, no paying service to a company that doesn't respect its customers.

which means NO HBO or CNN Plus either. It should be called CNN minus with their number of subscribers, LOL. Cya

We have had DirecTV for 20 years and have paid about $20,000 to you over that 20 years on average when you consider what the packages cost per month.  I don't care that OAN is still available in App stores or online.  We have bad internet around my rural area and few choices to make streaming any better.  I want to be able to see OAN on my television.  If you don't bring it back soon, I will cancel my services totally.  And if you take Fox News or Newsmax off the air, I will do it so fast your eyes will spin.

Why on earth did you cancel OAN? Because of disinformation? I'm going to give you one small example of how hypocritical you're being. There is much more starting with Russian collusion, Trump being spied on, Hunter's laptop....the list is endless. This one is pertaining to Officer Sicknick's death.

I've said and demonstrated this before and I'll do it again. Mainstream media lies repeatedly to manipulate you and sway your opinion.
🚩NYT...Officer Sicknick was killed due to blunt force trauma from a fire extinguisher by a pro-Trump mob.
🚩MSN..Irritants like bear spray led to the death of Officer Sicknick.
🚩CNN, Wolf Blitzer...Officer Sicknick was killed from injuries he sustained by Trump supporters.
🚩Daily News... Officer Sicknick was pepper-sprayed then fatally bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher when hundreds of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.
👉Sicknick called his family the night of January 6 and told them he was pepper sprayed, but was fine.
👉Medical examiners failed to find signs that Officer Sicknick sustained any blunt force trauma.
👉The only ones killed were four pro-Trump supporters: two who died of a heart attack, one from an amphetamine overdose, and the other, Ashli Babbitt, who was shot point blank in the neck by Capitol Police
👉Here's the truth: Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who engaged rioters, suffered two strokes and died of natural causes. officials say.
The Media Lied Repeatedly About Officer Brian Sicknick's Death. And They Just Got Caught.
So.....DTV!!!!....why don't you drop those networks? Take look back at how mainstream media lied about the other topics I mentioned that they claimed were conspiracy theories.....and they turned out to be true! DTV....YOU HAVE A PROBLEM!!

AT&T/DirecTV has only said that the decision resulted from an "internal review", but did not go into detail what that review was. Your opinions on the channel's content does not change the fact that it is gone.

If you must have the channel, then you will need to look into another provider. You can check OANN's website for a list of current providers.

I would like OAN back on my lineup please.  This is the only truthful news station there is.  I will be cancelling Directv next month if you don't bring it back!  You fell into the hands of the far left liberals and that is a shame. Don't let this current administration intimidate you! We need OAN back on 347 right away!!

Best solution is to cancel.  Many of us pleaded for months that they reverse their decision.  I doubt much will change with a woke left extremist as the chair of the AT&T board and the formation of Biden’s new “ministry of truth” led by the most by one of the most dishonest people in media.

You will find DIRECTV is over priced like many of us did.  You can get OAN as well as many other good stations for a fraction of the price.

Hello, @Pro1A. Although OAN channel is not part of the DIRECTV programming. You can find alternatives to enjoy their content:

• OAN is available is still available through their websites (
oann.com and awetv.com) and in popular app stores. Find more info here: oann.com/wheretowatch
• You can stream OAN programming for free on
https://www.klowdtv.com/
• DIRECTV is offering alternative channels such as: Fox Business Network, Newsmax TV and many others.

We also understand how important it is to keep the bill under budget. Let's meet in a Direct Message to explore options for your DIRECTV service. Please check your DIRECTV Message Inbox (It's the chat icon next to the bell icon in the upper right corner of the Forums)

Not much of an answer shannon02.  It's not in the line-up because it's not in the line-up.  Who decided to remove it.  What reason was given.  Why is FSTV still on, an extremely socialist channel and very anti-American.  Who are the people in charge of this.  What are their names.  How do I speak to them.

AT&T's answer for their TV services is that from an "internal review" they decided to not even attempt to renew the carriage agreement when it ended. So far, that is the only reason they have given (though many have their opinions on the reason). This was announced months ago. They followed through last month.

You are not getting OANN back on DirecTV. Check their website for the few other providers that have them.

As AT&T owns the business, not you, it was their right to make the decision as much as you don't like it. And as a consumer, we don't get to talk to the people in charge of these decisions. Calling customer support will not change the situation as they have no control over those decisions.

Would you be as dispassionate and understanding if BET was pulled.  Or, if LOGO got yanked for no reason.  But, some how, all the far left channels seem to survive without any fear of removal, no matter how tiny the viewership is.  If a private Christian bakery can be forced to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple, then DirecTV should be forced to run OAN. Equity under the law.

You send survey. It does not load from your email.

And i doubt one would have the oppurtunity to add comments.

My biggest comment/concern. Is..you got rid of OANN. 

I so miss them. And i hate paying for sports (Edited per community guidelines). Same price. Swap me! Put OANN back on and dump the sports payment i pay every month for something i dont give a crap about.

Thx

I am paying for OAN now.  $4.99/mo.

I hate not being able to just put a channel number in and viewing what I want.

When I find a replacement, DirecTV is directly down the tubes.
