Theres a lot involved when adding channels time and money , and some just arent available in certain areas due to fcc restrictions, for instance in this area theres only 1 pbs station available through uverseyet there are 4 transmitting over the airwaves. They cant just flip a switch. Some providers choose to scramble stations they are not authorized to broadcast where at&t chooses not to offer them  and clutter the channells

You absolutely do not need to shout in your first post on this forum. It makes a bad impression.

 

I do not know where you have been, but U-Verse is always adding new channels, and I do not mean just paid informercial or shopping channels.

 

Just because U-Verse has not added any channels that you have asked for, does not mean that they will not in the future. Please read the post after yours from U-Verse employee Constructive.

 

I hope that you are not a One and Done One Post Wonder, and will come back to comment., but something tells me that you won't.

 

How long have you been a U-Verse subscriber?

Not quite true: There are known examples in the Monterey CA area and Gulfcoast MS.

 

It does sound like there could be some movement on carrying them but it might take a few years........

SO ARE YOU REALLY AN EMPLOYEE

IF SO PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY YOU CANT CARRY THE SO CALLED SUB CHANNELS

THESE ARENT JUST LOCAL CHANNELS THESE ARE CHANNELS THAT ARE BROADCAST ACROSS THE COUNTRY JUST LIKE FOR EXAMPLE TBS

TBS USED TO JUST BE A CHANNEL CARRIED IN ATLANTA BUT THEN THEY STARTED GETTING BRADCAST ACROSS THE COUNTRY

I DONT SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND SAY

RETRO TV OR ANTENNA TV OR COZI TV

WHY CAN LOCAL CABLE COMPANIES CARRY THEM

HAS ATT EVEN LOOKED INTO CARRYING THESE TYPE CHANNELS

I WOULD RATHER HAVE THESE TYPE CHANNELS THAN

LIFETIME OR OXYGEN OR THE DOZEN SHOPPING CHANNELS

IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT SPACE

STOP ADDING A CHANNEL EVERY WEEK TO ADVERTISE FOR CHEVY TRUCKS OR VACATIONING IN TEXAS OR ARKANSAS

I DONT LIVE IN THOSE STATE AND DONT CARE TO VISIT THEM SO WHY WOULD I WANT THAT CHANNEL

I WENT TO THIS MESAGE BOARD AREA HOPEING TO FIND SOMEWHERE CUSTOMERS COULD VOICE THEIR OPINION ABOUT THE CHANNELS THEY WANT

HOW ABOUT PROVIDING US WITH SOME PLACE WE CAN DO THAT

I wish someone had the time to compile the list of channels (HD and SD) added to U-Verse that are not shopping or informercial channels in the last three years since you became a U-Verse subscriber. I am sure the number is a lot higher than what anyone thinks it is.

 

Maybe there is a U-Verse employee that can supply the list with the name and date the channel was added.

 

Your argument has no basis. There is nothing that you or anyone else on this forum can do that will bring subchannels to U-Verse any sooner. U-Verse is aware that subscribers would like to have them.

 

I HOPE THAT YOU CAN STOP SHOUTING IN YOUR POSTS. IT IS VERY IRRITATING TO MOST PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2013, including the numerous PAC-12 and BeIN sports channels, there were about 77 added that was not an app or a shopping channel.

 

Remember the Disney JR and BeIN sports drama?

Longhorn Network, the Laker Channel, Fox Sports 2, beIn Sports. How about some more contributions to show this guy how wrong he is.

 

My feeling is that he posted just to get a reaction from the forum, and he has succeeded in doing that.

SBN Ch. 580/1580 is a new one.

 

Plus,they have relocated channels to group them with other stations like that channel. AMC comes to mind.

 

I am not giving up hope that they will some day add sub channels. When I was a cable subscriber some of my most favorite channels were the subs. I am NOT going to add an antenna to get those channels as some may suggest. Why pay close to $200.00 for uverse services if I am going to do that?!

 

Uverse just added my city's public access channels to Ch. 99. They had access channels for 16 surrounding cities but not the ones in Nashville.

I GUESS ILL TURN MY CAPS LOCK OFF SO EVERYBODY WILL QUIT WHINNING ABOUT IT

who came up with this silly idea caps lock is shouting thats the dumbest thing ever

 

i see the channels people have listed as being new and im pretty sure these were all on when i started with uverse

we,ifc,sprout,sundance

 

but some of these are the same tricks dish network pulled

they rename a channel or move it to a different location

thats what they did with amc,fxm, american heroes (was previuosly called military history channel)

 

they also like to take one channel and put it on in a dozen locations

bein soccer its on about 4 channels around 1600 sports and its on a dozen channels around the spanish channels 2000

 

that way they can say they added two dozen channels this year

they have added a few channels but not that many

 

i would still like to see these channels added

retro tv, antenna tv, cozi tv, hallmark, up,  epix movies

 

some of the others mentioned

time life = another paid programming channel

 

masters app = that was a one weekend thing

 

bbc america was already on they just added an hd version

so again this is not really a new channel

 

thats what im saying they play these mind games making you think they are adding channels

 

im just interested if anybody has ever requested they add a channel and the channel was added

thats what im getting at they dont seem to be adding what the customers want

Writing in all capitals has always been considered shouting in the internet world. It is considered that by most people who post.

 

i see the channels people have listed as being new and im pretty sure these were all on when i started with uverse

we,ifc,sprout,sundance

 

Sundance HD was added in the last three years, and most likely the HD versions of the other three channels that you mention were added in HD, also. Adding HD of an existing SD channel is still adding a new channel no matter what you say.

 

but some of these are the same tricks dish network pulled

they rename a channel or move it to a different location

thats what they did with amc,fxm, american heroes (was previuosly called military history channel)

 

The  cable and satellite companies do not rename channels. The channels are renamed or rebranded by the owner of the channel. From the list of channels that people provided, I do not see too many that fit that description.

 

they also like to take one channel and put it on in a dozen locations

bein soccer its on about 4 channels around 1600 sports and its on a dozen channels around the spanish channels 2000

 

I have seen BeIN showing two different versions, as well as different versions of PAC-10. The Japanese news channel is only in two locations. Why it is repeated, I have no idea.

 

that way they can say they added two dozen channels this year

they have added a few channels but not that many

 

You obviously ignored the other posts on this thread.

 

i would still like to see these channels added

retro tv, antenna tv, cozi tv, hallmark, up,  epix movies

 

If you want those channels added, then request it here:   http://uversechannels.att.com/

 

some of the others mentioned

time life = another paid programming channel

 

masters app = that was a one weekend thing

 

bbc america was already on they just added an hd version

so again this is not really a new channel

 

Adding HD versions is looked upon as adding more channels to most subscribers

 

thats what im saying they play these mind games making you think they are adding channels

 

You are the only one who thinks U-Verse is playing mind games.

 

im just interested if anybody has ever requested they add a channel and the channel was added

thats what im getting at they dont seem to be adding what the customers want

 

If you read older posts, you will see that U-Verse has added channels that customers want. You have failed on all counts. If you are so unhappy with U-Verse, then find another provider. Why make yourself miserable?

Note to the all CAPITALS guy: U-verse is the first provider to get the SEC Network. U-Verse will shortly be providing One America News Network. I do not know where you get your information that U-Verse does not provide new channels other than infomercial or shopping networks. All you have to do is look at the lists from the last three years.

I hope that the original poster CANIPE1656 sees your post, but we will not believe it. Of course he will still deny that U-Verse is doing a great job of adding  channels.

 

Spiderman865, why don't you switch to U-Verse? Do you live in an area that does not have it?
