Request for new channel

DISH has just added BlazeTV to their 250 tier. I would like to see AT&T add it to their 200 or 300 tier selections. We need added diversity of political opinion and news from which to choose.

There is no need to make threats to AT&T. If you want to watch The Blaze, you will need to switch to Dish Network. It is the only television provider that will carry that channel.

 

According to Wikipedia, "TheBlaze is a conservative news and opinion website and Internet television network owned by American media personality and former CNN Headline News and Fox News host Glenn Beck's Mercury Radio Arts."

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheBlaze

 

However, according to The Blaze web site: "Partnering with DISH Network, Glenn Beck’s online 24-hour news, information and entertainment network will now be available on television exclusively on DISH, joining a host of channels including MSNBC, BBC America, CNN, Current, Comedy Central and FOX News."

 

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/nr-dish/

 

I hope that you are not a one and done, one post wonder, and will come back to let us know if you still intend to switch providers. Of course, Dish Network is the only provider you can go to if you want to watch The Blaze.

I second this! This is exactly the reason I came to AT&T's website this morning, and someone beat me to it.

Typical of Glenn Beck just limit himself to one TV Provider. Those I have seen his GBTV formally (now TheBlaze TV) on Roku and other IPTV STB and Smart TVs.

I did not see any other discussions about adding the BlazeTV to the AT&T lineup.  Is there any plans for this to happen?

Will AT&T ever add TheBlaze TV to the lineup?

See the link I posted above. BlazeTV is an exclusive partnership with Dish Network at this point.

The Uverse marketing department said that in order to add new channels to the lineup, enough people have to request for the channel. If there is no demand for a channel, Uverse will not add to their lineup. I specifically requested them to do the right thing & drop CurrentTV and replace it with TheBlazeTV. Having a channel dedicated to terrorism have no place on any American TV. The more request recieved the better the chances of the channel being added. To add TheBlazeTV, you must request at http://uversechannels.att.com/

Would definitely like to see the Hallmark channels added.  Did not realize they were not included when I started my ATT Uverse service.

Disappointing.

TheBlaze TV is on exclusive to DISH because Direct TV, U-verse, FIOS, Charter, and others have not picked it up yet. Glenn Beck has stated he wants to expand but has not reached a deal yet. He tried to buy Current TV but was not willing to pay more than $250M. He's determined it will be a better business model to create instead of buying, unless MSNBC goes on the block, which he is still eyeing as an option. Beck announced last month they will be launching a 24/7 international news service to be available by early 2014. TheBlaze TV lineup continues to expand with The Glenn Beck Radio Show, Pat & Stu, Liberty Treehouse, The Glenn Beck TV Program, Real News, Wilkow!, The B(rian).S(ack). of A, The Wonderful World of Stu, Independence USA, and special programming. TheBlaze Radio has a full lineup also.

Is it possible for U-Verse to have THE BLAZE TV instead of CNN?  We never watch anything on CNN or Headline News and they are a waste of our payment $'s if they are never watched.

Are you asking that U-verse add Blaze TV to it's channel lineup and drop CNN and HLN (aka CNN Headline News)?

 

By the way, I never watch Blaze TV, but I do watch both CNN and HLN.

It is never going to happen.  I just had to check the calendar, and it is not April Fool's day.  Do have to love the username, has to be someone getting paid by Beck to spread this FUD.

Beck has over 300,000 paid subscribers. He is reported to have made over 80 million last year.

Fun thing about those numbers you mention is that they are projections based off of data in March 2012.  Since his company is private, he doesn't have to release his actual numbers to the public.

 

Still, having 0.1% of the US population actually paying you to watch you cry is impressive.

I absolutely agree with you. We want to see U-Verse carry The Blaze TV as well. According to Glenn on the radio, he is trying to expand carriers BEYOND DISH. I will not switch from U-Verse; but hope that they receive enough requests for The Blaze to take action.

"Dish has a period of exclusivity with TheBlaze, so no other cable or satellite system can carry the channel quite yet. The companies haven’t disclosed how long this period lasts, but it is probably ending soon, because TheBlaze is starting its campaign now."

Not sure what 300k paid subscribers can do though? That's a drop in the bucket for most providers.

Please carry the Glenn Beck TV series the Blaze, we have 7 liberal stations and Fox News.. THe liberals are spending us into oblivion and bankruptcy is not far behind..  I think your company would also benefit a great deal monetary wise because people will watch his show before a lot of what you have on now.  Thank You.
