This is not right. I'm so tired of nick Jr. I was very much looking forward to this for my son to be able to watch because he to is getting tired of nick Jr. For a program that would be great for children and direct TV decided to say its not worth it was definitely the wrong choice they will be loosing much more money now with people looking for new providers who carry the channel then they would have had to pay to have the channel. BIG MISTAKE direct TV.

Just got off the phone with Direct TV customer service. They have every intention of carry the channel, they just are working on the price. If you think about it, we always see things saying call your cable provider and let them know you want this channel. Thats exactly what you need to do. She noted that I was calling about the channel. Also as for the commericals, that is Disney's doing not Direct TV. So if anyone needs to get a False Advertisement it is Disney. They arent allowing it on all networks obviously they are going to go for the ones that will pay them the big bucks for the channel. While my children enjoy the Disney Jr block in the morning. I dont feel they need it 24/7. Plenty of things to do outside once it warms up in the morning. Although I will be glad we dont have to watch Spongebob before we go to bed. It will be nice to have Disney Jr in the evening. Bottom line, Call Direct TV and just let them know you want the channel.

I don't understand why directv doesn't get with the program. They are pretty cheap and what they offer is limited. I'm tired of complaining because they won't listen I'm just going to change satellite providers!! We really wanted Disney jr in this house my daughter likes nick jr... But who doesn't love Disney?? My little ones need more on Tv than spongebob and icarly the shows for little kids are crap. We need to support their growing minds and creativity.

I think it's rediculous that directv hasn't added the new disney junior channel. I should have looked online the other day because I've been checking the guide over and over without being able to find it.

I am very disapointed that it looks like Direct is not going to carry Disney Junior. I have a young son who loves Disney.

Anyone who is looking to switch shouldn't switch to Dish Network, because they aren't carrying it right now either. I have some rather disappointed little boys. I'm hoping Dish gets with the program soon!

No Disney Junior for my family? This is not right! I thought with all the advertising and talk and commercials, we would for sure be getting this channel. I thought DirecTV had and wanted to maintain its great reputation however just like me, many parents and grandparents are upset at the choice Directv has made about the Disney Junior channel. If w do not get this channel, s many others have already stated, we will be looking for a different provider.

My family was extremely disappointed to learn that DirecTV isn't carrying this channel. Other local cable companies are. The price can't be that high if a small cable company can do it, why can't a nationwide corporation?

If Direct TV had no plans of having Disney Jr., then why do they keep advertising it on TV? This is false advertisement! My kids were looking forward to it, especially with the old cartoons coming back like Rolie Polie and Stanley. If we had Verizon Fios in our area, we would switch in a heartbeat. This is a very big disappointment and unfair!

We were given the same lame company line by Direct TV. " you can still enjoy 4 hours of Disney Jr every morning blah blah blah" Not sure what idiot is running programming but they better wise up. Disney is the best channel for kids. Not sure if they know this or not but its the parents of kids who pay the bills. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!!! If they have plans to bring it on eventually let us know!

Parents! Relax! If u have directv go to channel 58 KLCS because they have Curious George, The cat in the hat, Aurthur, and Dinosuar Train! If that doesn't work for u then call them! Don't switch!!
