I work for DTV and I thought with all the controversy and complaining going on I would take some time to answer any questions anyone has!! So ask away! and please remember that if you wake up tomorrow and those channels are not available, the representatives that you are calling and yelling at, have no control over the situation so please treat myself, and my coworkers as humans!
UPDATE: so just so we are all clear with Ms. Perfect that kept telling you that you wouldnt lose your channels (which we all know now is not true) i NEVER stated that it was a permanent loss! DTV and Viacom are negotiating to see if they can come up with an agreement to get those channels back on asap. they are not letting you out a contract because it does state in your contract that channels may be lost or gained at any time HOWEVER they are offering $5 off for the month of July and free encore channels...for more information you can visit either dtv or viacoms fb page or got to directvpromise.com ill be glad to answer anymore of your questions!
