The following is the official statement from Fox Networks regarding DirecTV‘s decision to potentially cease carriage of Fox Networks: 

“Despite Fox Networks’ offer of an extension during our ongoing negotiations, DirecTV has informed us and their customers that unless we agree to their demands, they ‘will suspend our networks on November 1.
DirecTV sent us a proposal on Tuesday afternoon.  They have given us no chance to respond before taking an unnecessarily aggressive posture and going public.  It is disappointing that they have chosen bad faith tactics over meaningful negotiation.
We have proposed to keep the Fox Networks on DirecTV for the same price, and on the same terms as they are currently carried while we attempt to work out a fair agreement. Unfortunately, DirecTV has decided that unless they get their way, they are going to pull the plug on their customers November 1.
For more information Fox Networks viewers can go to keepmynets .com beginning Friday, October 21.”
