LOS ANGELES, CALIF: According to reports, some 20million DirecTV customers are without some of the world’s most famous T.V channels today as the company itself is in a bitter-dispute with Viacom over future negotiations which resulted in the mass T.V outage.
A hilarious tweet from ATL footballer Brent Grimes:
“When my son cant watch ‘The Backyardigans’ tomorrow he might call DirecTV himself,” Atlanta Falcons All-Pro cornerback Brent Grimes posted on Twitter, referring to the Nickelodeon animated series.
Daily News contacted one of the affected T.V stations (Nick) but wasn’t able to get a comment as Nick Cannon was unavailable at the time.
