DirecTV drops Nickelodeon, 14 other channels

If you turned on your TV this morning and saw that Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, MTV, Nicktoons was gone, then you are not alone. Late Tuesday night Viacom pulled off Nickelodeon and 14 other channels from the 20 Million or so DirecTV subscribers. DirecTV subscribers lost 14+ channels owned by Viacom in a dispute to pay the channels DirecTV was brodcasting.  Viacom sent letters to DirecTV on Tuesday ordering them to remove the channels by midnight or face legal action.

DirecTV was in hopes to continue broadcasting these channels as they tried to negotiate with Viacom. DirecTV said that Viacom was seeking 30% more fees, which would amount to an additional $1Billion. This would make the subscribers pay more.  DirecTV’s executive Derek Chang said ratings for many of (Viacom’s) main networks have plummeted, and much of Viacom’s programming can be seen for free online.” 

But Viacom wants to increase the amount by a couple of pennies per day, per subscriber. But both sides dropped negotiations. Early this Wednesday morning Viacom executive Denise Denson stated the last time we spoke with DirecTV at 11 a.m. (Tuesday) morning … there were no new ideas offered for resolution. In fact, the last proposal DirecTV had made was lower than anyone else pays in the industry, and a deal we said we would not do out of fairness to other distributors. … We are ready to talk at any time.

These are the channels that the DirecTV Subscribers lost:

Palladia,

Centric,

Tr3s,

CMT,

Nicktoons,

VH1 Classic,

TeenNick,

Nick Jr.,

Nick@Nite,

Spike,

BET,

VH1,

TV Land,

Comedy Central,

Nickelodeon

MTV

These Viacom channels are replaced with mixed channels from FX or Bravo. Sadly Viacom might keep it this way. Me and other 20 Million viewers lost shows like Legend of Korra, iCarly, Dora the explorer and classic cartoons and shows that just aired on Teen Nick.  Like, All that, Kenan and Kel, and Rugrats. Also BET’s Black Panther. And golden classics like I Love Lucy from TvLand. Let’s all hope that this doesnt last long.

And here’s the commercial for “Don’t let DirecTV drop your channel”

Nickelodeon brings Fanboy and Chum Chum: Brain Freeze to DVD

On August 16th, Fanboy and his trusty sidekick Chum Chum bring home some super fan fun, as Nickelodeon releases Fanboy and Chum Chum: Brain Freeze on DVD. The collection features seven episodes of the CG toon, as well as the original animatic for the Brain Freeze episode. It’s a perfect way to celebrate the heat of summer, with the boys’ favorite treat, a cup of Frosty Freezy Freeze. There’s adventure, fearless excitement, and, of course, underwater outside of clothing. Take a look at the episode collection on the disc, and let us know what you think!

Brain Freeze
Fanboy and Chum Chum discover that their favorite Frosty Freezy Freeze flavor, Berry Pink, is about to be discontinued. Determined to have as much as they can before it’s gone forever, they end up with a massive brain freeze. The next morning, Fanboy and Chum Chum wake up with no memory of what happened and their signature tighty-whiteys are missing. They must retrace their steps to find out how their crazy night unraveled so they can find their precious underwear and restore order.

Berry Sick
During a summer heat wave, the boys discover the Frosty Freezy Freeze machine is on the fritz. It’s up to Fanboy and Chum Chum to get the Berry the Ice Monster, the machine’s operator, back in good health.

Refill Madness
Lenny and Boog learn that Fanboy and Chum Chum have a valuable cup that entitles them to endless free refills at the Frosty Mart. The two decide to work together to try to steal the cup.

The Frosty Bus
Fanboy and Chum Chum are waiting for the Frosty Bus to buy a Frosty Freezy Freeze. Unfortunately, Boog is driving and torments them by always keeping their beverages just out of reach.

Jingle Fever
When Fanboy and Chum Chum find out they can win a million Frosty Bucks by writing the new Frosty Mart jingle, Lenny does everything in his power to stop them.

Back from the Future
After Fanboy and Chum Chum show Lenny that Dollar-nator is a time machine, he decides to use him to travel back in time and prevent Fanboy and Chum Chum from ever tasting a Frosty Freezy Freeze. But despite his greatest efforts, the boys somehow always end up discovering Frosty Freezy Freeze.

Norse-ing Around
Fanboy and Chum Chum discover a frozen Viking in their icebox and decide to help him “achieve glory” so he can get into Valhalla.

Fanboy and Chum Chum: Brain Freeze Fast Facts:
DVD Running Time: 88 Minutes

Fanboy and Chum Chum are on their way! Nickelodeon will soon have 26 episodes of the new CGI animated comedy series, which spins off from the upcoming Nicktoons Network series Random! Cartoons.  Fanboy and Chum Chum is about a fearless, comic book-loving 10-year old kid (Fanboy) and his best friend and trusty sidekick (Chum Chum) who team up to live their super hero adventures.  For Fanboy, there is nothing more normal than living life in tights and a cape.  I’m the same way!
