As we feared , DirecTV and Viacom didn’t work things out and before the clock struck midnight ET, all of the network’s feeds went dark for the satellite company’s customers. Of course, both sides are throwing barbs with Viacom saying DirecTV was not interested in engaging in “meaningful conversation” and that their last contact was at 11AM. On DirecTV’s side, it’s claiming it sent proposals but never heard anything back and as such was forced to pull the channels. Viacom has been running ads and notices all day to make sure kids big and little call DirecTV to apply pressure about missing their television shows.
