subsidizing spanish channels.

subsidizing spanish channels.

Why am I subsidizing Spanish channels on my plan? These channels are of no use to me since I do not Speak Spanish. I am an American who speaks English.

Re: subsidizing spanish channels.

You have other options if you want to pursue. If you evaluated the plan that you subscribed to then you were aware of what the content being delivered was going to be. I don't watch half of what I get now.

They are on all DirecTV Now plans. English speaking customers should not be paying for these channels.

Re: subsidizing spanish channels.

I guess I should not be paying for the ones I do not watch but I knew that when I subscribed. But I have no issues. Of course I have other options also.

Re: subsidizing spanish channels.

The point is not paying for something I don't watch, the point is watching something you can't understand. English speaking American's are subsidizing Spanish channels on all the plans for Latino's. That is not right!

Re: subsidizing spanish channels.

MidnightRun since you understand English so well did you not read what channels you were getting with your directvnow subscription? If you do not like it cancel your service.  I do not see a difference between channels I do not watch due to language or channel programs I have no interest in watching.  

There are many channels I do not watch but I get charged. Example I am supporting Trump TV, aka Fox News. I was aware of this channel and others that are part of my subscription package that I do not watch. Great thing about America you can always take your business elsewhere.

You need to read post 5 again, that is if you read it at all.

If your point is paying for something you don’t watch, geez I just missed 59 shows last hour, times 24 hours, -holy moly my plan should only be $2.29/mo for only the shows I watched.

Re: subsidizing spanish channels.

How do you know the Spanish language viewers are not subsidizing the English ones? Do you have full accounting data to prove what you say?

As long as true A la Carte service does not exist (Sorry Sling, you are not a la carte) someone will always be "subsidizing" someone else.

The only way to avoid this is to use an antenna and only watch what you want with it.
