    Fox stations possibly getting drop from DirectTV

    Did anyone see that FX, Foxsports Net, and some other Fox Broadcast stations maybe getting dropped from DirectTV effective 11-1? This big time impacts Big12 football and anyone who is a fan of any of the FX Original Series(Always Sunny, the Leage, Sons of Anarchy, Lights Out....).

    I guess the one positive is at least I'd be able to drop the Sports Pack and save some money.

    Lets see:

    The good news: All ISU football games to be televised next year.

    The bad news: My carrier doesn't carry the appropriate channel(s).

    Conclusion: There ain't no good news!

    Sucks!

    They won't be gone for long. This happened with Dish a year or two ago and they were only off a week or two I think. It's all about the money...

    Exactly.

    See: Dish, last year. KDSM/Sinclair vs. Mediacom, 2007/08.

    They'll threaten back and forth...maybe go dark for a couple weeks, then it all comes back.

    Rinse and repeat a few years down the road, or next year with a different set of networks.

    I went to this website and all it really tells you is that you are screwed if you want to watch Fox or FX and that you need to switch providers if you want to continue viewing those channels.

    Side note, did anybody watch Sons of Anarchy and see all the special announcements from the creator about the change? That is definately one way to get the word out!

    I believe FX was off Dish for about a month last year.

    So, given all of this crap, where is the Texas Tech game to be shown on Direct TV - or is it?

    I thought the two companies were owned by the same ownership group from Australia?
