I read elsewhere that DIRECTV is dropping OAN Channel. That channel provided news that most other news channels don’t mention. I feel like information is being censored by groups that take control of a company and start canceling services.

:welcome to Satelliteguys WBDirecTV!
FYI, tread carefully here, politics isn't allowed outside of the proper forum. This isn't it.

Didn't DirecTV start OAN?
"In October, Reuters ran an investigative report on how AT&T, which spun off DirecTV last year but retains a 70% share in the company, nurtured OAN, and how the rightward channel drew the bulk of its revenue from the telecom’s platforms. Reuters reported that Robert Herring Sr. testified in a deposition that AT&T executives urged him to launch the channel in 2013. DirecTV has said that OAN was just one channel it has carried across the political spectrum."

You're not paying for the infomercial or religious channels, they pay Dish for carriage. They're not included in the channel count for your package.

Perhaps the main reason is OANN is NOT paying a fee to be carried --if the Station chooses to pay perhaps it will maintain its place in the channel lineup?

Possibly, but there are many channels that don't pay to be carried. Most of course are public interest.

It is apparent that you guys can not discuss this without going down the political drain. If you wish to discuss it further please start a thread in the political talk forum.
