DirecTV will drop pro-Trump One America News Network from pay-TV service

The satellite pay-TV service DirecTV will drop One America News Network (OAN) when the right-wing channel's current transport deal expires, likely a critical hit for OAN's viewership and finances.

About 90% of the right-wing network's revenue came from a contract with AT & T's TV platforms, including DirecTV and U-verse, Reuters reported in October 2021, citing sworn 2020 testimony from an OAN auditor. DirecTV is the network's largest distributor, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"We informed Herring Networks that after a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires," DirecTV said in a statement to USA TODAY.

A DirecTV spokesman would not say when the OAN parent company Herring Networks' contract with DirecTV expires. But Bloomberg, which first reported on DirecTV's plan to drop OAN, said the contract ends in early April.
