To Whom it may concern,

I have read that your company is planning on dropping One American News Network in April because of OANN reporting false information on Covid 19, I’m assuming you are also planning on dropping CNN & MSNBC because of the same reason? If this is not the case, please consider this letter as my notice that I will be canceling my contract with Direct TV.

Thank You

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.

Whoever is reporting that as a reason is only speculating. Directv has only stated they are not renewing the contract, they have not provided a reason. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out, though. It’s not just false information on covid.

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.
