I know nbc is letting direct tv air passions is there any chance down the line if nbc wanted the show back on its line up they could assume ownership
NBC still owns the show. They have only sold the rights to air it. The deal with DirecTV is for one year. Presumably, if at the end of that year NBC decided that it would be in their interests to begin airing the show again, they might. It is extremely unlikely however, given the fact that, even with a quarter of the audience they have now, they can make more money having someone else air it. Besides, they’ve publicly stated that they want out of soap operas and, within two years, likely won’t air any.
even though its getting moved to direct t.v can people with comcast or dishnetwork still watch it?..
