OANN

I am seeing things posted on Social Media that is saying you are going to cancel OANN.  If that is true, then I will be cancelling my service.

DTV can't drop any channels until the contact expires.

My service will be cancelled when OAN is cancelled.  Have a premium package but only watch about 5 of the 95+ channels.  Can get streaming services for less than a quarter of what I pay now.  Probably should tell DirectTV to pound sand now...

Everyone who is going to cancel due to them cancelling OANN, make sure you tell them to remove their satellite dish.

DTV will never remove the dish as you own it.

You are telling people to request something that doesn't exist.

DirecTV doesn't remove the satellite dish. Upon install that is customer owned. Only the receiver/client boxes get returned, and that is on you to take to a participating shipper. No tech goes out to remove anything.

If anybody wants their dish removed, they do it themselves or hire someone to do it for them. It has never been DirecTV responsibility or option to do so for you.

I read the same article.  It's doesn't appear to be a contract dispute but a decision on DirectTV`s part.  If it does happen in April, I'll drop my service and switch to a different provider or just save my money and go streaming.

As soon as I can get Dish network out here to install, I am gone.  I don't watch OAN, but AT&T's decision to censor (Edited per community guidelines) view points is facism.  I will get my phone service switched as well as soon as I can make that happen.

Just read: U.S. satellite broadcaster DirecTV said on Friday it will drop far-right channel One America News (OAN) from its service when its contract expires, in a blow to the popular news network." which will happen in April.

Putting on record that when you cancel OAN, I will be cancelling my service with you.

Please start a file on how many customers are unhappy about this decision. Thank you.

If they do, we will be dropping them. Just another form of censorship.

WE just found out that Direct TV will be dropping One American News (OAN).  Limiting free speech and news networks, that don't lie to us, is our Constitutional right.  Big corporations that allow for individuals in Government to threaten the very fabric of our Country should be held accountable. 

If Direct TV drops OAN, we will drop you!
