    For those who have Direct TV it is incredibly suspicious that Fox News Channel is suddenly unavailable due to "technical difficulties". Do we need an investigation?

    Sounds suspicious. Try Youtube, sometimes I get it there.

    DirectTV has blocked channels in the past due to licensing disagreements with the companies. They are probably trying to cheap out and fox isn't having it.

    I don't know, BUT, I do know this. About two years ago it was blocked again because Fox wouldn't pay what they wanted them to.

    In an election this close any advantage given to either side could tip the scales. I'm not buying that this is a coincidence.
