Where Did My DirecTV Channels Go?

You may not even realize this, as it just happened last night at Midnight.  But, DirecTV dropped 24 channels from its lineup!  These aren’t the random channels that nobody watches, either.  We’re talking about Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV and 14 others!

The contract between DirecTV and Viacom expired last night.  No more MTV?  That means no more Jersey Shore!  I guess SOMETHING good came from all of this :-)  I have to assume Pauly D won’t be wearing that shirt anymore.

Why have we lost the channels?  As always, it’s about money!  But, there are two sides to every story.  I’m all for equal time.

Fingers crossed that we get our channels back…and soon!  What’s a world without SpongeBob SquarePants, Jon Stewart and Hot In Cleveland?
