TV channel owners are asking for more money
We pay fees to TV channel owners for permission to add their channels to your lineup. As contracts expire, owners sometimes turn off their channels as a bargaining tactic.
We’re on your side
We share your frustration about your missing channels. We thank you for your patience while we do our best to resolve the situation.
Switching isn’t the answer
Unfortunately, no TV provider is safe from this problem. Almost all TV providers receive threats or lose channels due to owners' bargaining tactics.
