DirecTV sucks

Of course everyone here already knew that. No room for TTC, but just replaced one of their channels with Al Gore's new channel "Current TV".

Starting Aug. 1, Current Media will replace Newsworld International programming with Current TV, a national network created by, for and with an 18- to 34-year-old audience.

Current TV, the new independent youth network, is led by company chair Al Gore and CEO Joel Hyatt and will represent young adults in "their world, in their voice," says a company release.

"DirecTV strives to provide a diverse array of quality programming and Current TV's plan to give young viewers the opportunity to collaborate on the programming they see on television, is novel and exciting," said Dan Fawcett, executive vice president Programming Acquisition, DirecTV.

Re: DirecTV sucks

At the TTC booth at the LA Tourney....the girl told me that they hoped to have TTC on DirecTV by the first part of 2006. I know that is a ways off...but at lest there is hope!

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Re: DirecTV sucks

Tennis channel's commentators have brains. You can't say the same thing about Espn announcers.

Newsworld channel is one of the best, but they cancelled it!

Useless Currentv has a stupid interview of Paris Hilton's friend.

Since just a few days ago, I guess. I still don't get the point of the channel. Yesterday they showed a clip of a guy who has a Michael Jordan/Nike shoe fettish and they showed his shoe collection and showed him going to the store and buying a pair of Nikes. Then they shoed a short story about a woman from Texas who became a Baptist pastor and is working at a Baptist church in Wisconsin.
