Late last night DIRECTV STREAM dropped Newsmax from it’s lineup.
“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. Anyone, including our customers, can watch the network for free via NewsmaxTV.com, YouTube.com and on multiple streaming platforms like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Google Play. We continually evaluate the most relevant programming to provide our customers and expect to fill this available channel with new content.” DIRECTV said in a statement.
This news comes as cable TV companies and streaming services push back against rate hikes from content partners.
This is breaking news more to come soon.
