DIRECTV wanted to stay open to offering both left wing/right-wing and conservative networks, so they were able to reach an agreement with NewsMax today. Having NewsMax dropped likely had a good effect on their customer base so they felt a negotiation with NewsMax was necessary. For OAN, it was likely not too much of a burden not having it anymore so that is the reason that channel hasn’t been returned in over a year.

If it is a problem for you, you can always make a favorites list that does not include NewsMax. It is a simple and effective solution. Otherwise, cancel your subscription and find another provider that doesn’t offer NewsMax (few don’t offer it so good luck). 

That is how the pay-TV industry works. You pay for what programming you watch, and it doesn’t matter whether or not you may not like a couple.

Wow, you have your choice of over 20 left-leaning or far-left channels on DT that spread leftist propaganda like the Russia collusion hoax, many word for word, and you're complaining?
