New Channels - PAC 12 Channels

I see new channels in the Guide:

 

759 - PAC 12 Network - National

 

760 - PAC 12 Network - Bay Area

 

761 - PAC 12 Network - Los Angeles

 

1759 - PAC 12 Network - National HD

 

1760 - PAC 12 Network - Bay Area HD

 

1761 - PAC 12 Network - Los Angeles HD

 

If you don't see the channels in your Guide, reboot your receivers.

Between this and bein sports U-Verse is on fire. I'm overseas on vacation and can't wait to see these when I'm back. Hats off to AT&T for both of these huge additions. I thought U-Verse didn't add channels on Saturdays, or was that Sundays? Oh who cares. Just need ESPN Goaline up and runinng and NHL Network back now.

In the 4 1/2 years that I have had U-verse, this is the first time that I have ever seen them add a new channel on a Saturday.  I guess they wanted the channels up and running prior to today's games.

 

By the way, yesterday's addition of beIN Sport on a Friday was also unusual.  There have been a few instances in the past where new channels have been added on a Friday; however, the normal days that U-verse adds new channels are on Monday's and Thursdays.

Looking at the channel guide, it seems that for the most part all three channels have the same thing on at the same time. I did find a few exceptions such as with women's volleyball. Nevertheless, duplication on all three channels is better than no channels at all.

I assume that we cannot get PAC12- Arizona, Mountain, Oregon, and Washington because U-Verse does not serve those states yet.

 

http://pac-12.com/networks

 

When I checked, U-Verse was not yet listed on the provider list so that video could be streamed onto your computer from Network, Bay Area, and Los Angeles.

What is the purpose of carrying three channels if it's all the same programming?  Will the Bay Area and Los Angeles channels eventually broadcast something different from the national channels?

 

I noticed that two other providers in Orange County that carry Pac-12 don't carry the Bay Area channel and that Dish only carries the national channel.

Yes, there will be some programming distinction, as well as some duplicate programming.

 

Kudos to AT&T.

I saw the channels on my guide today and subscribed to the Sports package several hours ago (on U-200 in San Diego 92122). I still get that I am not subscribed despite the Account Manager application saying that changes would take effect in 30 minutes, and that I have rebooted my RG about an hour ago. Any thoughts on how to get the channel activated?

 

I was not subscribed to the Sports package until this morning, and since I subscribed I have access to the CBS Sports channel, which was previously not subscribed. So I know that the Sports package has been applied to my account.

Are you sure that the Pac 12 channels are part of the Sports Package?  I have not seen any information as to what packages these channels have been placed in.

That was based on an (admittedly convoluted) online chat who eventually said that the network is available on the Sports package, and when I was looking at the channel lineup to see what package I needed to subscribe to, it said that the Pac-12 Networks would be available as an "Option" for U-200 and it is listed as a Premium channel for U-200. When I search the Sports package specifically the Pac-12 Network doesn't show up, but I can't figure out what packages it might be in.

Have you tried rebooting the U-verse recever connected to the TV?

Yes, that was the first thing I tried. I rebooted the receiver, that didn't work, so I rebooted my gateway, that didn't work, I tried another TV without luck. I went on to chat since I don't have enough minutes on my cell phone plan to try the phone customer support. It took 30 minutes before I gave up trying to convince them that indeed U-verse now carries the Pac-12 network (They were reciting old lines of AT&T refusing to pass along unreasonable costs to the customer). Right when I gave up and asked them to remove the Sports package, they said "Good news I just found out the Pac-12 network is available on the Sports package". They said they added it back and gave me a month free, but it still doesn't work (suprise). CBS Sports is still working, though. I just restarted the second receiver, no change. I would restart the RG again but that would kick me out of chat (which the representative might actually prefer...)

Sounds like you have already done everything that I would suggest.  I'm not sure what's causing the problem.

 

This won't help you today, but if you can't get this resolved, please send a PM to AT&T Customer Care who can help get your issue resolved.  Also, check the settings on your account to make sure that you will receive email notification when a PM is received on this forum.

Thanks. The representative now says it is only available on U300, and not on the Sports package, at least in my zip code. The online channel listing shows 759-761 as only available with U300, but 1759-1761 as available on both U300 and U200 with the HD Tech upgrade (http://www.att.com/channellineup/u-verse/channel-lineup.jsp?locale=en_US&mode=&flag=&zipcode=92122&c...

 

A lot of confusion here. It sounds like they may offer to upgrade me to U300 for a few months free which will work, but I don't know that $15 extra a month will be worth it for the Pac 12 networks after football season is over.

Sounds like something is screwed up with your zip code.  It may be due to the fact that they had to rush today to get things setup to broadcast the channel.

I plugged in various zip codes in the U-verse channel lineup website and came up with the following:

 

In the LA and Bay areas, Pac-12 is part of U200

 

In California, outside of the LA and Bay areas, Pac-12 is part of U300

 

Outside of California, Pac-12 is part of the sports package

based on the att website channel lineups, these channels are in the hd premium tier out of market, like the various fox and comcast rsn's. I don't see anything about u300.

 

unless they changed it since yesterday...

I am also a fellow San Diegan with U200. No one seems to know how to get these channels, it's ridiculous. Things tried yesterday that didn't work:

 

1) Sports Package - I left this on because they are doing a 1-month free promotion right now

2) HD Premium Tier - gave me other HD Premium Channels, but this did not get me Pac-12

3) U300 - the lady insisted this would work. It did not. I gave it all night.

 

It appears that the only thing that would work is the U450 - my San Diego friend has this, and is receiving the Pac-12 network with no other packages. But I don't want to pay an extra $50 a month.

 

LA to the north - my UVerse friends are on U200 and get the channel.

 

According to the AT&T U Verse Channel Lineup, it should be available on U200. It says Optional and when I click on Optional, it says: "Available with the HD Technology Fee at $10/month." Which I am already doing.

 

http://www.att.com/u-verse/shop/channel-lineup.jsp

For zip code 92117

 

It appears they rolled it out much better in the Los Angeles and Bay Areas. Hopefully, they figure out San Diego.

No, out of market, these channels are in the Sports Package and the U450 Package.  That is the reason that you have both the SD and HD versions of he channels.  If they were in the HD Premium Tier, you would only have the HD versions of the channels.

 

Also, some parts of California do have these channels in the U300 Package.

ah, in that case they are not listed as part of the sports package on the website. Sports pkg is part of u450, so there need be no distinction there.

 

I believe its in U200 in my market....I moved a few weeks ago and now am stuck with COX.
