Kurt Sutter Katey Sagal
Kurt Sutter, the Creator of the FX hit show Sons of Anarchy is very
crazyinvolved in his show, so much that he will interrupt his own SOA broadcast with video of himself saying what he wants…he did this multiple times on last night’s episode!
As we reported a few days ago, FX may not be apart of the new DirectTV channels, starting November 1, 2011. This means you will miss the last 5 SOA episodes, plus any other show you may watch on FX such as “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Sutter, who we love (seriously- look at my pics below!), has returned to Twitter since this chaos has begun- it took a freakin’ mountain to move! He’s pissed, and we love his passion! Let’s support our friends.
Just when I thought my choice to go with DirecTV for all my TV viewing pleasure was the correct one I catch wind of a behind the scenes struggle over (you guessed it) money that just may result in many of Fox’s channels to be removed from the DirecTV lineup.
Apparently, Money hungry News Corp, you know the guy that bought Myspace, has demanded a huge pay increase from equally cheap DirecTV in order to keep broadcasting FX Network and other Fox sports channels. Estimates put the increase at over 40% per viewer, per year to keep the FX lights on DTV.
If the media giants don’t come to a compromise by November 1st, 2011, FX will go dark, at least for all of us who trusted DirecTV with our entertainment budget and many of us Sons Of Anarchy fanatics will be left with the option of going and watching SOA in all it’s non-HD glory on stinky cable, or you could defect to DTV rival, Dish Network, or watch through the TV store window or there is always taking up a nice hobby, like needle point.
So if fly fishing lessons are out of the question for the moment and you really just want your SOA without the big business drama your options are limited, that is IF you already subscribe to DTV, as it is in my case, you too may have to just wait it out and watch the SOA replay on the internet.
