We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but sadly we have no choice. Two channels—Esquire and Universal HD—are being pulled off the air by the programmer.
Yeah, we know it’s a bummer! Unfortunately though, we don’t have a say in the matter. NBC Universal has decided to end production of both channels. (For a bit more information about the Esquire take down, Variety has a good story.)
Esquire is going off the air July 1, 2017 (channel 181/781) and Universal HD is going dark on July 15, 2017 (channel 552).
Stay tuned for new channel announcements—we’re always working to bring you a great lineup!
