So what exactly is this viacom business that's going on? I'm totally oblivious to it.

Do you threaten to cancel?

No. Like you, I'm halfway through a 2 yr contract. I played their promise infomercial against them. Said I agree with their stance that I shouldn't have to pay more for the same channels I already get, but shouldn't I pay less now that they no longer carry those stations? They agreed.

I threatened to cancel. Pretended I loved the channels so much I was ready to pay to cancel.

i just did the same thing. i do every year before football starts. i told her i love mtv and my kids love nickelodeon and are really sad that they can't watch their shows (oops, i don't have any kids!). i told her that my only reason i got directv was for sunday ticket, and i see they offer it free to new customers. she said the best she could do was 50% off sunday ticket, and throw in starz and showtime for kids movies for my imaginary children. i said i don't think that is worth it to me, and i would really like to have sunday ticket for free to compensate for the lost channels. i told her my contract is up and nothing is keeping me tied to continue my service unless i have sunday ticket. she said i can give you sunday ticket for free and the movie channels for 6 months, i told her done deal, thank you for your cooperation

don't be an ass and they'll work with you.

Yeah we just got $30 per month bill credit, every movie channel they have free for 2 months, free Sunday ticket, and a new HD DVR with wireless package for their on demand....with free installation. They work with you if you're polite and decent at negotiating.
