I am dumbfounded by the lack of bbc america in HD. I asked about bbc america before I signed up, I didn't think I had to claify "in HD" It's 2013, I thought that was a given. If all of the standard deff channels dissapeared from uverse I would probably never find out. I had to use search to find bbc america, I didn't even think to look in the sub 1000 channels.
I don't watch a ton of TV, but Top Gear is a must have for me, I am very disappointed in not having it.
When people ask how do you like uverse, I say, "its great, but no top gear in HD". Since cars are my hobby that deters quite a few people from my friend base.
The best way of appealing directly to AT&T (afterall, this is a customer to customer forum) is to 1) submit a channel request at this link or 20 send a private message to the escalation team at AT&T Customer Care, and someone will get in touch with you.
Good luck with that and please remember that 1) BBC may demand more than AT&T is willing to pay OR 2) it is possible that BBC America has a sweetheart deal to keep U-Verse from getting BBCAHD. Ya never know. AMC HD was only added a few years ago because of the latter.
