  • DirecTV dropped Newsmax, a conservative cable news channel, Tuesday night following what the satellite TV provider claimed were failed negotiations regarding fees, a spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
  • “On multiple occasions, we made it clear to Newsmax that we wanted to continue to offer the network, but ultimately Newsmax’s demands for rate increases would have led to significantly higher costs that we would have to pass on to our broad customer base,” a spokesperson for DirecTV told the DCNF.
  • The satellite TV service dropped One America News Network (OAN) in April 2022, following pressure from liberals, including members of Congress.
