Really, Dwinth? You don't see a sudden spike in interest in this forum topic and think, "Huh. Some people got to keep Fox News longer than others?" Instead you assume the person who says it suddenly is gone has been oblivious for 5 1/2 months? Come on, I thought you were smarter than that.
Some of us were lucky, I guess, and got to keep the Fox News Channel until June. I was watching FNC -- I think it was the day before yesterday -- when the screen went black. Since we've been having some odd service blackouts for the past week, I didn't think much of it (other than to curse AT&T under my breath.) Then today I went to the channel and saw the message that I am not subscribed to it. Funny, the AT&T website still shows it as part of my channel line-up, "as of June 20, 2012."
I have gone back through my e-mail messages looking for the warning e-mail message people on this forum (which I only found today) said I should have received, but I sure didn't see one. I had no idea FNC was being removed from my channel line-up. And yes, I was a frequent FNC viewer -- not necessarily every day, but almost.
I probably would have just remained a new lurker, reading the comments and resigning myself to a life without FNC, but your comment pushed my buttons. Oh, and since U-verse is a bundle (in my case, including my land line, my internet, and my television) letting it go would mean changing all those things.
I was under the impression that Fox News was pulled from the U-100 level on January 1, 2012. That is very strange that some people were able to keep it, and while others were not able to keep it. You were lucky to have kept it that long.
