As most of you know Direct TV and The Weather Channel are in a contract dispute and has resulted in Direct TV dropping TWC's programming.
Doc Masters has made that the subject matter of his blog and one of his statements troubles me.
The loss in revenue from DIRECTV's 20 million subscribers would be a major funding blow to The Weather Channel, and would also negatively affect the financial situation of the Weather Underground.
I am a fan and avid follower of WU and anything that would negatively affect the site I enjoy is dismaying to me.
As for Doc selling WU, I defended his right to do so and still firmly believe in that right, however I worried and am even more so worried that his choice will negatively impact the site we have enjoyed and still do.
Even so, I feel Direct TV is doing the right thing in not making their subscribers pay more for what is more and more a network that provides less weather information and instead panders to the reality viewing audience and it leads to the QOD:
Do you back TWC or Direct TV in this contract standoff?
