DirecTV threatens to pull FSNs

YAY!!! I had called them last night and they told me that Center Ice wouldn't be affected by what was going on, but they were still in negotiations. I'm relieved indeed...not only do I like FSD (for obvious reasons), but there is a new show on National Geographic Wild about one of our local vets, called "The Incredible Dr. Pol". I know him, I know where he practices (right down the road from my house, in fact), and I know some of his clients. Makes for really cool tv.

WOO HOO!!! I was prepped to be watching NHL on PS3 because of this but now I can watch it and SPEED as well as every other channel I watch which just so happens to be on a FOX network. I suprised myself to find out that 90% of the show I watch are a Fox affiliate. Freaked me out that I was going to have a TV contract for TV I wasnt going to watch, I was really mad about that but for now Im calm again..

Now only if the Wings could make my FSND feed worthwhile to watch Id be content with paying 150+ for the ability to watch them :angry:

It only happens when a contract expires, similar to how lockouts in sports leagues occur when a CBA is expiring and a new contract is not negotiated in time. It seems like it's always Fox that has the high profile carriage fee wars with providers, so I blame them. In the last couple of years they've had disputes with TWC, Dish, and now Directv. Next year, or sooner, it will be another provider (Comcast, AT&T, etc) and customer base that will be held hostage by News Corp.
