DirecTV not renewing its contract with OAN
Earlier this month, DirecTV confirmed that it won’t renew its current contract with the One America News Network, which is expiring this April.
The conservative channel is known for being a major supporter of former President Donald Trump. A spokesperson for the cable network company confirmed the plan to drop OAN from its ranks.
“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” he said.
DirecTV’s decision may have something to do with the liberal media’s constant cries to drop the network for spreading misinformation.
Critics of the network include 16 civil rights, human rights, and media justice organizations. They all called on TV distributors to drop the network for spreading disinformation.
Senator Rand Paul Reacts By Canceling His DirecTV Subscription
Hearing the news, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter to announce he’s canceling his DirectTV subscription.
He also suggested that other right-wingers should do the same. “I just canceled my home Direct TV. Why to give money to people who hate us?,” Sen. Rand Paul tweeted.
former President Donald Trump also jumped into the fight. He mourned the loss of OAN’s accessibility across America. Trump said that DirecTV targeted OAN’s removal because of politics.
He then urged his supporters to reconsider using AT&T’s services in the future. “Maybe what we should do is not use AT&T,” he said.
Other Conservative Voices Decry the Loss of OAN
Meanwhile, former Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs also decried the decision. He attributes the loss of OAN to an overzealous liberal media network. “Corporate Media is crushing what little dissent remains,” Dobbs tweeted.
In addition, author Nick Adams noted that OAN’s loss is further proof that cancel culture is very much active. “Cancel culture is destroying our country!” Adams tweeted. “DIRECTV must be held accountable for canceling OAN! BOYCOTT AT&T and DIRECTV!”
OAN Is Dead Without DirecTV
However, the decision has serious implications for the One America News Network. During a 2020 court proceeding, OAN’s founder testified that the inspiration for the conservative network came from AT&T executives themselves.
CEO Robert Herring Sr said during an earlier deposition that “they told us they wanted a conservative network”. At the time, only Fox News represented the right-wing, while seven networks supported the left. “When they said that, I jumped to it and built one,” Herring said.
In addition, the conservative channel receives nearly all its revenue from DirecTV. By not renewing, DirecTV can literally cripple the right-wing network and reduce its reach across America.
In fact, a network lawyer once told the court during a 2020 proceeding of how much OAN depends on DirecTV. He noted at the time that if DirecTV drops OAN/Herring Networks, “the company would go out of business tomorrow.”

Great, they should certainly understand that cancel culture works both ways. And don’t be confused, they’re all suffering. People better wake up! Regsrdless if you’re democrat or republican or anything else, 1 party rule is communism. No checks and balances leads the destruction like we’re seeing now. This disastruous afmin os quite possinly sending the US into something it may never recover from. If you don’t think that’s the plan then you have never heard of the Rockeffeler Foundation, world economic forun or the georgia guidstones. Be aware of what’s coming. Ironically, we’re living under exactly whst the left screamed about for 4 years under Trump. Locked down for a flu that was created and released on humanity, with a risk for 0.03% (im rounding up) of the population, forced shots, withheld medical treatment, stupid unreliable swabs that everyone seems to thi k you have to shove up your nose everytime you’re sick? And the definition of vaccine has been changes. Changes weekly, and at oresent the White House, CdC, and Fauci are all saying something different!oh, and two years in people still don’t realize masks do nothing , and the experimental jabs fon’t either!👏
Thank God almighty we will not have to put up with this “MALE OF THE SPECIES BOVIN FECES” after the mid-terms. And if you are uneducated enough to not understand what I just said, THEN
LIKE I HAVE SAID BEFORE. SAY IT THE WAY YOU MEAN IT:
” FUCK JOE THE HO BIDEN “
I DON’T SUPPORT THE CANCEL CULTURE SO I WILL CANCEL MY AT&T SERVICE AS I CONTINUE TO ELIINATE ALL SUPPORT FOR ANY ENTITY, PERSONALITY, ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO SUPPORT THE CANCEL CULTURE. THERE WILL A DAY WHEN THEY PAY. PAYBACKS WILL BE ETERNAL.
I To Have Been A subscriber Of Direct TV For Over 15 Years And Have watched OAN Since It Entered Direct TV.
I To Plan On Cancelling My Direct TV, If They Drop O AN, Because Of Pressure From Those On The Left.
It Is Wrong For Direct TV, To Cave Because Of Pressure. The Left Has More Than Enough Channels Covering Those On Left’s Viewpoints.
I love OAN. Watch it every day and evening. Great news channel. Can’t believe it is being cancelled.
