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”

NEW YORK, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Nickelodeon will launch a new nighttime programming block this fall on TeenNick called “The ’90s Are All That!,” featuring a rotating selection of iconic live-action and animated shows from Nickelodeon’s 1990s library including All That, Clarissa Explains it All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Rugrats, Rocket Power, Salute Your Shorts, The Amanda Show and Kenan & Kel. “The ’90s Are All That!” has been developed in part as a response to overwhelming demand from fans of Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking original series from the 1990s. There are more than 9 million fans of Nickelodeon’s ’90s programming on Facebook alone.

“There is an entire generation of young people who literally grew up on these great 1990s’ series, and many of them have been vocal about wanting to see and experience these shows again,” said Keith Dawkins, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Nicktoons and TeenNick. “TeenNick caters to the older segment of the Nick audience, so it’s the perfect place to reconnect these shows to their original fans and introduce them to younger viewers for the very first time.”

“The ’90s Are All That!” will air Monday through Sunday from midnight to 2:00 a.m. (ET), starting fall 2011. The block will feature a rotating line-up of ’90s Nick library content, as well as forthcoming acquisitions and feature films from the decade. TeenNick’s audience also will have the opportunity to influence the block’s line-up by requesting their favorite series and episodes via social media sites set up by the network, including a dedicated Facebook fan site.

Nickelodeon has ranked as the top-rated basic cable network with kids and total viewers for the last 16 years—since 1995, the longest run of its kind. The 1990s represent Nickelodeon’s first major expansion into original programming and content spanning multiple genres—animation, live-action, preschool, game shows, awards shows, feature films, news and pro-social campaigns—across both television and the internet. The ’90s also saw the opening of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Fla., where the network’s sitcoms and game shows were made before moving to Los Angeles, and the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., where today more than 450 episodes of new animation are being produced, the largest amount in the network’s entire history.

The network’s first three animated series, Ren & Stimpy, Doug and Rugrats, debuted in 1991 and were instant hits, launching a new television era of original programming for kids, as well as creating a pipeline of groundbreaking Nick animation that continues through today’s hits like SpongeBob SquarePants, T.U.F.F. Puppy, The Fairly OddParents and Fanboy and Chum Chum. In addition to becoming the leader in preschool programming first with Blue’s Clues and then with Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi, Nick’s innovations in the world of live-action yielded a score of defining hits from the ’90s–like All That, Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete and Salute Your Shorts—to today’s iCarly, Victorious and Big Time Rush. Nickelodeon’s stars from the ’90s to now have also gone on to have major entertainment careers, with a roll call of names including Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Mike O’Malley, Miranda Cosgrove, Victoria Justice, Drake Bell, Josh Peck and the members of Big Time Rush, among many others.

Nickelodeon, now in its 31st year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films. Nickelodeon’s U.S. television network is seen in more than 100 million households and has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 16 consecutive years.

The Fairly OddParents celebrates 10 years on Nickelodeon

For ten years, The Fairly OddParents has been entertaining folks across the Nickelodeon empire. Joining in the ranks of SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer, the adventures of Timmy Turner and his magical fairy godparents have reached their 10th anniversary, moving into a special league of all-time classic toons. Just to put this amazing accomplishment into some better perspective, 10 years ago: New episodes of Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Johnny Bravo were on Cartoon Network. Rugrats, Men in Black, Pinky and the Brain welcomed The Fairly OddParents as a Nicktoon. Pokemon Johto League Champions, Max Steel, and Batman Beyond were on something that used to be called the KidsWB! Seems a little more impressive now, huh 🙂
