I don't know how many of you have Direct TV. I have Uverse. So I wasn't to worried about getting pissed on if Direct TV and Viacom fight, yet hear I am wet.
For those who don't know Direct TV has balked and not signed a new contract with Viacom networks to carry their channels since Viacom wants an extra 30%. If they didn't sign a deal by midnight July 11 Direct TV customers would no longer get such great channels as Comedy Central,MTV (1-8) VH1, Nickelodeon, CMT and other ones. They didn't and are now locked into a battle of brinksmanship, waiting for one of them to blink.
In an attempt to get Direct TV to blink first Viacom has pulled all their programming off their various sites. So that means if you forgot to DVR Daily Show or whatever and normally caught it online the next day (like me or just watched it all online due to a lack of cable) well guess you'll rember next time. The little guy always gets screwed in these things but this just is annoying.
