Newsmax

Why has Direct TV all of a sudden decided to DROP one of our MAIN news channels. I thought our country was past censorship! Shame on you Direct TV!

This is just a public forum of other customers. We have no clue when dtv and newsmax will strike a deal.

It was indeed dropped, you can cancel by calling in (number in my greeting below) and saying ‘cancel’ to the robot. All leased equipment gets returned to a participating FedEx or UPS location with your account number. Be sure to keep the receipt given to you by the clerk so you can avoid the possibility of an equipment non return fee (ERF) as you now have proof of return.

Additionally, if you are somehow still locked into a contract, DIRECTV will charge you $20 for every month left. This is known as the early termination fee (ETF). These are restarted when you add/upgrade to new equipment or move services to another address. If you haven’t done this within the last 2 years, you should be good to cancel without the fee.

Hardly a response but thank you. Please stop censorship. It tells the viewing public that their opinions don’t matter.
