Re: [DIRECTV] Viacom
It's been a while for us now. The only program the kids miss is Futurama, but it's $2.84 per episode (in HD) from Amazon about 5AM ET the night after Comedy Central airs it.
Someone has to stand up to content creators. Viacom has not introduced much new, and provides a lot of content on Netflix, Amazon or Hulu Plus, not to mention Viacom's own sites (until this dispute when they took it down).
Why should any content distributor pay a large increase when the content being sold is available from many other sources at no cost to the viewer?
Aside from my kids and Futurama, which was easy to solve. There hasn't been a thing from Viacom on DirecTV that we missed.
Spike, Logo, Comedy Central, Nick ... OK, I at least know what those are, but the kids only watch Futurama and maybe some Nick when bored. What the heck are the other 22 (of the 26 channels Viacom and DirecTV pulled) channels I never watch??
