One America News Gets U-Verse Berth

From the link below:

 

Herring Networks said its One America News Network has reached a deal to be launched by AT&T U-verse TV across the country.   

 

One America News Network will soon join the U-verse channel lineup in the cable news neighborhood on channel 208 in standard definition and on channel 1208 in high definition, the channel said. The broad carriage by AT&T U-Verse will give the independent, conservative news network more than 5 million additional subscribers, the programmer said.   

 

The startup, conservative-leaning news network (which launched July 4, 2013, and extensively covered the Conservative Political Action Conference this past spring under a sponsorship pact with American Conservative Union), had already obtained a carriage deal with the other big telco-TV provider, Verizon FiOS TV, though the U-verse distribution appears to be wider than the FiOS launch, which has the HD channel in the Ultimate HD package.  

 

“We’re thrilled to give U-verse TV customers more choices by adding One America News Network to our channel lineup,” Ryan Smith, vice president of content acquisition at AT&T, said in a release. “The network is devoted to providing an independent and dependable source for news reporting around the clock along with commentary, programming and documentaries.”  

 

“We’re extremely pleased for the support extended by AT&T U-verse in providing carriage to One America News Network. We’re grateful for the broad distribution and the channel placement within the cable news neighborhood next to other leading cable news networks,” Robert Herring senior, CEO of One America News Network, said in the release. “U-verse TV customers will be able to easily find our news channel and we’re confident that our programming lineup of national and international news, interactive talk shows, and current affairs programs will resonate well with U-verse TV customers.”  

 

U-verse also carries Herring's Wealth of Entertainment, “AWE,” formerly WealthTV, on channel 470 in SD and 1470 in HD.

Isn't One America also know as the American's for Prosperity propaganda network? The Koch brothers have to be behind it. Can't think of a bigger waste of precious Uverse bandwidth. They better be paying for placement - this is the antithesis of independent journalism.


Umm, CNN and MSNBC are the antithesis of journalism.

Along with Fox, Bloomberg, the NY Times, the Wall St. Journal, etc. etc. and the list goes on ...

 

 

The truth is that all of them are for-profit businesses that make the majority of their profit via advertising.  To make money, you need more advertisers and more expensive ad spots.  To get that, you need more viewers/listeners/readers.  To get that out of a competitive news market, you have to sensationalize, slant, bias, and create controversy where there wasn't any.

 

And that's why we are where we are, and why you can't get truthful, straightforward, fact-based news from any source in this country (or most others).

Stopped on OANN for a few minutes last night, and you can tell they're still getting the kinks out.  Pretty innocuous, in fact, in that it was pretty much a newsreader at a desk and a few correspondents of their own.

 

Didn't try either of their two "opinion" shows, but their programming day looks like 18 hours of news coverage, 2 fresh hours of the opinion shows followed by rerunning each of those twice.  Not too much to really get your bloomers all twisted up about, those who seem to be against them without watching one minute.

 

As I said, pretty innocuous.

My guess is they'll start filling in where they're lacking HD feeds.  Starz Cinema and Starz in Black; the additional Encore flavors that are carried already on Bright House; Showtime Beyond/-West, Showtime Next and Showtime Women are ones that could easily be greenlighted.

 

They might bring the Epix channels on as well;  that is, if Verizon doesn't have contract language that prohibits distribution to someone like AT&T.

 

About the only "new" channels that have sprouted recently have been Comcast-sponsored because of their "deal" with the FCC over NBC Universal, those being Revolt and Aspire.  Don't even think of holding your breath for those to come any time soon.

Are those movie pack channels (Starz, Encore, Showtime) even offered in HD? Last I looked, they weren't.

Encore Black, Classic and Suspense are available; Family, Espanol and Westerns are TBD

IndiePlex and RetroPlex are also available.

All Showtime channels except Family Zone are available; Next and Women were recently started.

All Starz are now available also; Cinema used to be the lone holdout.

Kind of a run on sentence there, lol.  And I'm assuming that you meant to use the word "too," as in the news channels provide too much info?  There are a few channels that UV could add, such as, say, Hallmark? :smileyvery-happy:

One America looks like an infomercial channel like the time life channel. If the added One America, they should add Aljazeera, Blaze and Newsmax. As far as movie channels, Epix is on Direct tv, so after the merger att is getting the nfl package plus a ton of new channels.

Do you have a source or inside information to confirm what you said.

Great...But where is Al Jezera?  I have watched some of their content on DirecTV and was really impressed to find them producing, well, actual news.  Not opinion.  Not opinion cloaked as news.  Not bluster and boast.  Just news.  Surely, if AT&T can find room on the dial for two right wing channels trying to pass as news channels, one liberal one and one that is just wandering in the South Pacific looking for plane debris, they can find a way to give us an actual news channel.  Right ATT?  Time to step up!

One America News Network is hardly unbiased and objective. They are a broadcast news network of the Washington Times which is owned by the Unification Church. The U.C. is headquartered in South Korea and is headed-up by the Reverend Sun-Yut-Soun (sp). The network and the newspaper are both extreme right wing.

Wrong, they are owned by Herring Networks, which also owns AWE (formerly Wealth TV) and based out of San Diego and DC.  They are partnered with The Washington Times to provide a conservative news network.

BUT .................

 

IF you're on the "other side" and partnered with, ummm, say, Brian Roberts of Comcast (a 'contributor' to the Prez, including soirees/fundraisers) and his MSNBC, then everything's just hunkey-dorey.

 

Ummmm...bartender!  What they're having, and make it a double.

If it's conservative, it's not news, it's propoganda.
