You may remember that DirecTV cut OANN last year.
I know many of you bailed from their service at that time, but for those who remained you’re about to lose your other conservative channel.
According to recent reports, DirecTV will soon cut Newsmax as well:
AT&T’s DirecTV Cancels @NEWSMAX After Censoring @OANN
“AT&T said it made the decision for ‘cost-cutting’ reasons, despite paying out massive sums in cable licensing fees to leftist channels with lower ratings.”https://t.co/dRrUpqrlYk#Newsmax#OANN#DirectTV

First OANN, now Newsmax:
What is going on with @DIRECTV and @ATT?
First, they cancel @OANN, and now @NEWSMAX.
This is an unprecedented assault on free speech.
If things don't change immediately, subscribers have no choice but to cancel @DIRECTV and @ATT.

Not a coincidence:
You think it's just a coincidence that @ATT @DIRECTV cancelled the only cable news channel that broadcasts @realDonaldTrump's campaign rallies? @NEWSMAX

Despite Newsmax being the 4th highest-rated cable news channel in the nation, a top 20 cable news channel overall, and watched by 25 million Americans on cable alone, according to Nielsen, DirecTV said it was taking the step as a “cost-cutting” measure and would never pay Newsmax a cable license fee.
DirecTV pays cable license fees to all top 75 cable channels and to all 22 liberal news and information channels it carries. Almost all of these channels are paid hefty license fees significantly more than Newsmax was seeking — and despite the fact that most of the channels have much lower ratings than Newsmax.
Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) said the TV provider’s actions showed “a political decision to censor conservative media, which is a red flag for the First Amendment.”
“This is a blatant act of political discrimination and censorship against Newsmax,” Christopher Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax said.
Ruddy explained that extremely liberal stations with ratings lower than Newsmax receive cable license fees from DirecTV.
However, Newsmax and OAN get dropped by the provider and lose access to millions of viewers.
As the Washington Examiner reported, House Republicans sent a letter to DirecTV about the de-platforming of Newsmax:
Hunt sent a letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Examiner to DirecTV and its owners, AT&T and TPG Capital, co-signed by 41 other Republican lawmakers ahead of the company’s “deplatforming” of Newsmax.
“I am deeply troubled by DirecTV’s decision to remove Newsmax from their lineup of channels,” Hunt said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “Deplatforming Newsmax is the latest development in the Left’s ongoing campaign to purge voices they disagree with from the public sphere. This decision by DirecTV and TPG Capital will cut off tens of millions of viewers who rely on Newsmax for their news and information.”
Hunt said millions of people turn to Newsmax as a source of trusted information and people need access to a free and fair press.
“I am sure that DirecTV will claim that removing Newsmax from their lineup of channels was purely a business decision, but that is hard to accept when liberal news channels like Vice Media continue to remain on the air. Vice is a ratings failure for DirecTV, yet they continue to profit from their relationship with DirecTV,” Hunt added.

Second, what if I told you I could not only get you OANN and Newsmax but also save you about $100 a month?
True and true!
Switch To VuTV+ Now, Get OANN and Newsmax, Save Hundreds Each Month! [Limited Time Only]
How much do you pay for CableTV or Satellite TV?
Do you have DirecTV?
Most people pay over $100/month for this nonsense and then they end up losing the channels they actually WANT to watch.
Ever since AT&T/DirecTV cancelled (or threatened to cancel?) One America News Network (OANN) from their lineup, I have been telling you all about a new company called VuTV+.
I love what they do!
More on that in a moment and a big announcement to share with you.
First, here is the news about AT&T/DirecTV:
If @DIRECTV cancels @OANN then we and many others will be cancelling @DIRECTV Stand up for #OANN
— Ribbit (@Green_thumbzz) February 8, 2022
Even President Trump has talked about it:
President Donald J. Trump:
"If AT&T/DirecTV cancels OAN, I hope that everyone will boycott and cancel DirecTV. It is a very popular channel, far more popular than most would understand, and they are being treated horribly by the Radical Left lunatics running the networks. pic.twitter.com/6aRoZLD3ER

DirecTV, one of the largest U.S. pay-TV providers, plans to drop One America News Network, dealing a major blow to the conservative channel that’s been criticized for spreading misinformation and had a loyal fan in former President Donald Trump.
The satellite-TV provider has notified OAN’s owner, Herring Networks Inc., that it plans to stop carrying the company’s two channels when their contract expires. Herring Networks also owns AWE, a lifestyle channel that stands for “A Wealth of Entertainment.”
“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” the company said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News.
So now let me tell you about the solution and how you can save $100/month or more!
It’s called Vu.TV+ and I think you’re gonna LOVE it!
It’s normally $18.95/month (plus a free 3-day trial), and you can watch almost any channel you want!
But right now it’s even better…with “Switch and Save” you can get it for $15.95/month!
Can’t do that with Cable or Dish!
SPECIAL NOTE: if you’ve tried VuTV in the past and had issues, those have been fixed! Additional servers and hardware have been added and the service now runs MUCH better! They have also hired extra customer service agents to assist you in the event you do have an issue.
If you tried it in the past and loved it (except the glitches) it’s time to give it another try….you won’t be disappointed.
