SmackDown has quickly grown to become WWE’s flagship show in recent years thanks to the incredible storyline of The Bloodline. Since 2019, WWE fans could tune in to Fox every Friday night to watch SmackDown. However, it looks like that may not be the case going forward.
Fox recently launched a website called keepfox.com. On the website, Fox has revealed that DirecTV may be looking into dropping the station from their packages.
“FOX remains committed to reaching a fair agreement with DIRECTV for the continued distribution of our networks. Despite our best efforts for months, we regret that DIRECTV continues to demand unprecedented special treatment that represents a wholesale change to our long-standing relationship and is out of step with marketplace terms.
As such we are compelled to alert viewers who are DIRECTV, DIRECTV Stream and U-Verse subscribers that they could lose access to their favorite FOX programming beginning at midnight, December 2, including the NFL on FOX, the Big Ten College Football Championship on FOX, the FIFA World Cup™ on FOX and FS1, FOX local news, and more.”
This means that as early as this Friday, SmackD0wn fans could lose access to the show. This would disappoint fans as this week’s episode will feature the fallout from WWE Survivor Series WarGames. WWE is yet to issue a statement on the problem.
