    Hello, I have been a DirecTV employee for several years working in Customer Service. On a daily basis, I...

    Jeff,
    As stated above, DirecTV is negotiating with the Blaze Network over the price DirecTV will pay for broadcast rights. DirecTV's stance is that they want to provide the network at a cost which does not require raising the rates for every customer. The Blaze Network has been holding firm at a price point which, if accepted, would force millions of DirecTV customers, who are not Glen Beck fans, to pay more for a channel that they do not value. That is a sure-fire way to loose customers. These things do take time, as mentioned above. If you would like to see DirecTV carry the Blaze Network sooner, you should write to the Blaze and let them know that you want to see them on DirecTV without your bill increasing.
    Some networks, such as Al Jazzuer, do not ask such high amounts for broadcast rights, so negotiating a contract is a much quicker process.
