SkitterTV strives to provide a comprehensive channel offering at the lowest possible price. Programming costs continue to rise at unreasonable rates. Each time there is an increase in programming costs, a tough decision must be made to either increase rates to subscribers or remove content from the lineup.
We regret to inform you that due to unfavorable terms and excessive increases in programming costs, SkitterTV will not be renewing their contract with Viacom.
Here is an official statement from SkitterTV:
“After working over six months to come to a reasonable position with the Viacom group, we decided it to be in the best interests of our subscribers to drop the channels and find suitable replacements instead of increasing package pricing by more than $5. The net situation is, if you are a Prime package customer, you will be getting over twenty new channels for no price increase, and if you are a Total package customer, you will be getting additional channels and a $3 price decrease. We respectfully feel that this is the best choice for you, the subscriber.”
The current contract expires March 31, 2018 at 11:59pm. After that time, the following channels will no longer be carried on SkitterTV:
Comedy Central-Channel 411
Paramount Network-Channel 423
TV Land-Channel 211
SkitterTV is working to replace these channels with comparable programming. Suggested alternatives that already exist on your lineup include.
|Channel Being Removed||Suggested Alternatives|
|Nickelodeon||Universal Kids (208), Cartoon Network (201), Disney (202), DuckTV (205)|
|Paramount Network||AMC (413), FX(414-416)|
|TV Land||MeTV (9)|
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this change in content.
