Fox News fans who happen to be DirecTV subscribers are livid as, on more than one occasion this week “Fox & Friends” has been blacked out on the television service due to “technical difficulties.”
“We are experiencing temporary technical difficulties. Please stand by. We apologize for the inconvenience,” a message from the company on where the Fox News channel is supposed to be read during the popular morning news show on Thursday and Friday.
The hosts of “Fox & Friends” addressed it on Friday when a viewer emailed them that they were watching on a TV in their bathroom that had cable because they couldn’t get the channel on DirecTV.
Fox News viewers, and Trump supporters who are paying close attention to the election in particular, were very suspicious of the timing.

DirecTV\AT&T have shutdown FOX NEWS HD this morning. FOX supports Trump, is DTV doing this because of Trump?

Directv is blocking Fox News channel past couple mornings stating technical difficulty. Seems odd with election so close…
