I heard that INSP will be removed on January 31,2014. (Didn't see this covered before.)

DIRECTV offers smaller programmers an opportunity to buy airtime on our programming lineup. Inspiration, channel 364, is one of the networks that paid DIRECTV to air its channel. Unfortunately, Inspiration decided to no longer purchase that airtime as of 1/31/14. DIRECTV did not drop the network, Inspiration simply decided they no longer wanted to purchase airtime.

I wish they would stay on because I really enjoy their Saturday lineup of old westerns.

Check out Dish's and Directv's Facebook page. People actually watch it and are willing to switch to Dish when all they can do is switch over to Hallmark, TV Land, or some other religious channel and they got most of their shows.

From the INSP web page:
http://www.iwantmyinsp.com/
[h=2]DIRECTV update:[/h] To INSP viewers:

DIRECTV is telling their customers they did not drop INSP. Instead INSP simply decided they no longer wanted to purchase airtime.
INSP is FREE. Why wouldn’t DIRECTV carry a free family network with high ratings and loyal viewership, particularly when they carry and pay license fees to networks with lower ratings and viewership?
INSP’s programming promotes families, honors veterans and captures the American spirit. Tell DIRECTV you want INSP back!

So what do those same people do when the Inspiration channel decides that it can't afford to be on DISH either ?

Blaming Dish then ?

It still COST to have them in the programming lineup ...

Where are these GREAT ratings and loyal viewership ?

If the ratings were that great, they wouldn't be paying thier own way.

I agree with you somewhat. I happen to like this channel, and although I don't want to switch providers, I will miss it at least a little. (I'm a conservative Christian and all that.) I do think that maybe they don't charge providers is because it's a family-oriented channel. Is it gone permanently or are they in negotiations?

It costs the provider money to recode it and put it back up on the satellite...but I'm sure you already knew that.
I like how they say "family friendly" then they have ads for boner pills.
Mommy whats an erection? And why if you have one for more than 4 hours you need to see a doctor?

According to Directv INSP paid to be on DTV lineup and INSP didn't renew the contract to stay on the lineup.

I might leave and pay etf if they keep dropping channels. As much as I hate the weather channel they are broadcasting from the super bowl this weekend. Weather nation has hardly anything about super bowl.
