Newsmax canceled

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.

Actually, you do not need to subscribe to any streaming service to watch Newsmax, The service is free to watch on many devices by their app. The app provides the same live viewing as is offered on all streaming services.
