Lost a channel

We had FS1, we have it no more. We miss not being able to watch Nascar sanctioned races. We have lost channels before but it was due to contract issues with the provider. I am assuming my package was rearranged? Can I get FS1 and pay just for that channel without upgrading my package?

Oan

Why did you discontinue OAN and continue to sell, provide, and promote the left wing (Edited per community guidelines) organization CNN. The level of verified mis-information is legendary. I cannot support an organization that actively silences an entire point of view. One that is rapidly growing.
