Ihave the U-verse 200 package, with HD. I was getting the HD version of HGTV on channel 1450 and the standard definition version on channel 451. Sometimes it was the same program on both, sometimes different. After 1 A.M., the HD version on channel 1450 had only "paid programming" (Infomercials), but the standard definition channel 451 still had House Hunters and House Hunters International episodes. Now both HGTV channels are gone. This was my favorite channel, so I will have to leave U-verse to get it.
I am considering switching to Dish Network so I can continue watching HGTV, DIY, the Food Channel and Hallmark. Their pricing is better than U-verse, which only has "deals" for new customers, whereas faithful customers who have been signed up withAt&T U-verse since they ran the fiberoptic cables to our neighborhood are now paying a lot more than the new customers.
