Is DirecTV blocking Fox News?

For the past three days, Fox News on Directv channel 360 has been unavailable with the message
“We are experiencing technical difficulties” during the morning show ‘Fox and Friends.’

Anger is building on social media that AT&T owned DirecTV may be censoring the morning news coverage towards left-leaning sources like MSNBC and NBC just days before the election.


Attempts to contact customer service have also frustrated customers to the point of lashing out on the DirecTV forums:


On Friday, AT&T’s media relations folks responded to our request for comment on the issue with a statement indicating that many channels were affected:

We’re experiencing technical difficulties impacting 8 HD channels, including CNN HD and FOX News HD, for our satellite customers. These and most of the other channels are available in SD and via our streaming apps. Customers can learn how to unhide SD channels athttp://soc.att.com/2f1HYN5. We apologize for the inconvenience. We’re working to address the issues and will update accordingly.
The statement didn’t address why or how the technical issue occurred.

  1. I’m in California and had no black out problems with 360, however is this because California is a liberal state and not considered a threat to the liberal wackos?
