The problem is viacom without a doubt. it doe't matter which cable or sattelite company you are with they have just proven that they will pull the plug or you. That is not giving much consideration to the custormer or the sponsors. That ia whack. It might be business but it is whack. No we really can't afford to pay another dime. We got these channels for this price and we should be able to keep them. Directv can replace them because I don't have any extra money. I really enjoy some of these channels but if I can't afford them then that is the reality.
