NEWSMAX

Please immediately reinstall NEWSMAX on Channel 349.   I tuned to NEWSMAX today on Channel 349, and it is gone without warning.  Since NEWSMAX seems to have more viewers than each of CNN or MSNBC it seems crazy for DirecTV to "Go Woke" and to drop NEWASMAX and farther irritate their already declining customer base.   I guess there is always DISH Network TV (cheaper prices and better hardware) or to stream on a smart TV as an alternative to get NEWSMAX.

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.

DirecTV canceled Newsmax and also just raised their monthly rate, so now I will be cancelling my DirecTV subscription.  Others should do the same.  You can still watch Newsmax on Sling or Fubo.
