Has Newsmax been dropped from the Direct TV channels ?

I was looking to switch over to Direct TV, and just heard that they have intentionally dropped Newsmax from the channel lineup. Is this true ? If so, then I will not be switching over to Direct TV.

DirecTV Adding “The First” to Replace “Newsmax”.

I just looked this up when I went to the channel (sure enough, it’s not reinstated yet) and it says on the top of the screen “The First” will be coming soon. Apparently it’s a conservative outlet. I’m not aware of it but it shows Bill O’Reilly on the picture for it. I’m not happy about removing News

Service Cancellation

I am contemplating cancelling this service. I primarily watch the NewsMax news channel for national news and previously watched OAN.  Is DirecTV planning to reinstate NewsMax? Please advise why I shouldn't cancel your service given you've cancelled this channel. To others - the competing

Tired of censorship!

Once again DirectTV has removed a popular conservative channel (Newsmax). One excuse I have heard is that it is due to licensing fees. Yet there are many less popular liberal channels that receive significantly higher fees than Newsmax. Eventually DirecTV will learn as liberal Twitter users did that

Switching plans

During the off season ESPN is plenty of sports for us and it's included in the base entertainment plan. During football season, we'd also like to have SEC network. Can I easily change to the choice plan in the fall and then change back to entertainment when football season is over?

Newsmax

When is Newsmax going to be re-instated? I chose Direct TV so I could watch Newsmax. You will lose many good paying customers by restricting the access to good news programming. Greta, Rob & Eric are watched nightly. You don't need Newsmax, I don't need Direct TV.

Newsmax

My husband and I are conservatives and watch the news that offers those veiws! Since DirecTV has not kept NEWSMAX on their plan we are looking for another alternative. We will not be held hostage by ANY business. This is a direct attack on the conservative Americans. DirecTV, as far as I am concerne

Newsmax

Just heard you do not pay carriage costs to very popular Newsmax and yet you do pay much less popular left leaning news shows. Please explain this. This leaves no option for Newsmax to remain on Direct TV. You can decide what shows you carry/payfor. Likewise your longtime customers can decide what

Newsmax

I have been a DirecTV customer for 28 years, and never been late on a payment. Dropping Newsmax stinks of censorship. You have a right to run your business like you see fit, but this was an important channel for my wife and me.  That's it for us! We are dropping our DirecTV service after all t

Directv stream app won't play on Roku

My DirecTv app constantly stops working on all my Roku devices. By "stops working" I mean the app displays the DirecTv logo and nothing else when you start it. If I delete the app from one Roku device (which deletes it from all my Roku devices) and then reinstall it from the Roku store it will work

Due to DIRECTV canceling Newsmax a signal strictly for political purposes, I will be canceling my DIRECTV and AT&T accounts which I have had for many years.
