Are you canceling One America News?

I was considering Direct TV. But I’ve read you are canceling OAN. Is this true? If so I’m have to look elsewhere.

Cancelling is not quite accurate, they have said they won’t renew the contract. There is a difference.

It seems they are but will hide behind "contract renewal".  Apparently it is not able to be discussed on here as another thread on it has been closed.  They can bury their head or they can pay attention the voice of their customer.

Threads are closed when they wander off into political rants and name calling.  If you can voice your opinion that you want the channel to stay, or that you're glad that it's gone without slinging mud, then your comments are welcome.

Call it "canceling" or not "renewing", either way DirecTV is not making OAN available. Therefore, I will not be "renewing" my subscription. But take comfort, DirecTV, I'm not canceling my service.

If they also start censoring and drop OAN, I also will be cancelling. Can we have nothing in this world that is not a political activist?   We only watch a few channels anyway. It will probably save me money.

Is it "cancelling" or "not renewing a contract", little difference, as OANN will no longer be available. The question is why is DIRECTV not renewing the contract. Is it because of poor ratings? High renewal price? or pressure from an activist group? If DIRECTV is making a decision because of politics, in affect choosing a political side, then they are making a poor choice / decision. DIRECTV needs to provide an explanation, or risk further erosion of revenue to their business.

Given AT&T's political bent, it's more likely a financial decision rather than a political decision. Of course, things could change between now and April when their contract would need to be renewed.

"Given AT&T's political bent", by this statement are you implying that ATT leans to the right? If that was the case, shouldn't they cancelling MSNBCV, and reforming CNN which they own?

We're wandering into territory that will get this thread closed.
