"DirecTV, one of the largest U.S. pay-TV providers, plans to drop One America News Network, dealing a major blow to the conservative channel that’s been criticized for spreading misinformation and had a loyal fan in former President Donald Trump.

The satellite-TV provider has notified OAN’s owner, Herring Networks Inc., that it plans to stop carrying the company’s two channels when their contract expires. Herring Networks also owns AWE, a lifestyle channel that stands for “A Wealth of Entertainment.”

“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,” the company said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News"

Likely upon pressure from the FTINC, fascist traitor in chief, Joe Biden. "Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power" - Mussolini

We'll see if DirecTV proceeds as planned as satellite TV is common in the hospitality industry. I've pushed DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) for years for reasons like this one. Although low frame rate video is technically possible via DRM, the DRM standard still struggles for mass acceptance. Acceptance is growing, but too slowly for my taste. DRM is an OTA (Over the Air) standard which is not trackable for the listener. While many people have cut the cord which is good, I simply won't use a trackable streaming alternative. I'll only use non-trackable OTA digital broadcasts. Digital OTA TV and radio is the only viable way forward for a freedom-loving person. DRM is the standard which allows the latter to happen. 

IIUC, DRM can be carried via the newest digital TV broadcast standard, ATSC 3.0 which implies the Internet Protocol is employed in some fashion. At this point, I'm uncertain about the trackability or utility of such a combination. Both DRM and ATSC 3.0 are very capable digital broadcast standards.We just need good content like OAN available via those standards.
