i think he's saying that Sonic Tap is getting replaced with Music Choice. i think it looks like Sonic Tap's deal with DirecTV is expiring and DirecTV reached a agreement with Music Choice set to start as soon as Sonic Tap's deal expires.
does UVerse have Sonic Tap or Music Choice, cause if UVerse has Music Choice while DirecTV has Sonic Tap, then it makes sense that DirecTV should have the same music channels as UVerse due to AT&T owning both Paid TV services.
What's odd is that there are no Music Choice channels called Malt Shop Favorites or 60s Movement. The 50s/60s channel is one channel, it's called Solid Gold Oldies and has been forever. Considering Music Choice is partially owned by the big cable cable companies, I would find it surprising if DirecTV got some exclusive channels.
Are they providing the linear music video channel MC Play on Directv as well? Why don't Music Choice provide the linear music video channels they provide on their app/website on TV providers like DirecTV? They have 25 of them. It would be good if they could have a few of the main ones on TV.
All channels rebranded to MC ...
The channels will change to what MC has, the channels you listen to will be on different channels now, some will be there, some not.
I'd say its more than rebranding.
Rebranding would be if the channels were not changing, but the service name was.
