Dropping the FOX Sports Networks can’t be good for DirecTV. Not being able to see my sports would make me one unhappy customer. Channel negotiations are never a fun thing, especially when the channels are taken down. I remember last year when my employer DISH Network was in similar contract negotiations. It was a rough few months mainly because I love Sons of Anarchy and not being able to watch them was so frustrating, and I knew exactly how the customers were feeling. Luckily, DISH was able to settle on an agreement so that we won’t have to worry about any of these channels going away. I hope everything gets worked out for DirecTV! Hopefully it doesn’t affect the UFC fight either!
