WHY? This station had some of the most interesting content of the entire lineup! This may push me to cancel cable once and for all.

Were they in re-negotiation discussions with AT&T? Maybe they couldn't agree, or NHK pulled the feed for the same reason.

Not that I ever saw. No scrolling messages about it, no warning, just gone. I'm beyond disappointed.

Well there you go! Good info.

Thanks Skeeter, I would never have seen that page. Guess I'll need to watch it on my laptop now.

So that's four channels lost this year, right?

Watch that corporate greed next January tho...

(TBH though, a lot of NBCSN stuff moved to other channels, so that doesn't really affect costs much.)

Why is NHK dropped from our channels in No Calif,?  Do I need to move to another provider to see it now?

There are 2 other ways I've found to access NHK live streaming:

1. There's a free channel on Roku for NHK.

2. NHK streams its broadcast live on the internet. I don't know if I can put their url up here, so search for "TV Live | NHK WORLD-JAPAN Live & Programs". I've been able to pause the playback to hare off for a snack or similar which is convenient.

Note that NHK World is like the US PBS but is supported by the japanese government. It sure was convenient to record some of my favorite programs though, so I'll miss it on UVerse.

UVERSE has discontinued a gem of a network.  NHK news coverage and their story selection provided a less editorialized coverage of news available from this country 's networks.  Other aired programs gave insight into the Japanese culture so much older and different from the USA's.  I hope you will consider reestablishing NHK network in your lineup.  

Perhaps you could reconfigure one of the numerous network shopping opportunities or celebrity's product endorsement programs.  It seems the longer I am a UVERSE fiberoptic prescriber, the more of these types of programs appear.  I would like to stay with UVERSE but am becoming increasingly disappointed with channels/programs available.   Also so many programs that I enjoyed with your service seem to be breaking off, bundling and then charging fees for their group of programs.

The contract with NHK expired and wasn't renewed. Read your TOS. Specific programming is not guaranteed and is subject to change. It happens to all providers.

The way your response reads: discontinuance of the NHK network is just a fact of life. It was never guaranteed. My expression of dissatisfaction and request for reestablishment of NHK means little to nothing to UVERSE.  One could  conclude from your statement, customer satisfaction is not a priority.

But thanks for the OtoPilot rapid response.

No channels are guaranteed on any provider.

Please look before posting. Here's a similar thread right below:

This might be it for AT&T for us. First BBC now our absolute fave channel of all time.

Does anyone know if their competitors such as Direct TV or Xfinity or Spectrum carry NHK channel? Will do the research but need to find out if it's currently on and if it may possibly be dropped soon before I switch.

Thanks in advance.

How could you remove NHK? That was the best channel you had!! Bring back NHK. Otherwise I’ll look for other service. Ugh

My little post on what happened to NHK received 2 responses from community members. Both indicating that each provider makes decisions on what to broadcast.   What I was trying to express was a disappointment this network will no longer be available to me.  I get that it is up to ATT/UVERSE to make decisions on which channels to carry.  I wasn't even concerned that perhaps the provider wasn't as transparent or timely with their announcement to suspend NHK.  I just wanted to register a concern from a customer about NHK's departure, and the seemingly proliferation of shopping opportunities (which are just not my thing)  Again I understand the need for revenue for ATT/UVERSE. It could be speculated that retail programming might be contributing, in general, to some of their programing changes.  I was gratified to see postings from others whom also morn the loss of NHK.   

I may not be a good candidate for this forum as my issue was not a technical concern.  More of a statement of taste and my interests and preferences.

Clearly ATT hates it’s customers otherwise they would provide the content we want. Canceling NHK is the worst decision ever. A giant behemoth company like ATT can pretty much make anything happen so their choice to punish it’s customers by removing NHK is abhorrent. But who cares right? We are just THE CUSTOMERS. Bring back NHK!

Where is NHK??

It's apparently gone. Nobody here knows when (or if) it will be back. The very few AT&T employees that post here with their posts marked as employees choose to post on their own free time and don't know anything about it. The help agents that post here know the same as the 800-288-2020 people.

In the future, please look for existing threads before posting new ones.

It's hard to imagine that CNN or any of the other news outlets on Uverse cost less to carry than NHK, and I'm willing to bet it has a less loyal following or would be missed less that NHK is.

This was the only wholesome network on television and my place of solace. Other news stations are so corrupt and biased they are unwatchable. NHK was the only place that offered straight news without an agenda. They also had great programs that were insightful and educational. I was on the verge of cancelling my U-verse for other reasons but the removal of the best network on television solidified my decision.

Business decision. Couldn't agree on a contract so they declined to renew.

99.99% of people also don't care about online bullies that reveal their true toxicity by leaving rude, negative comments under the veil of anonymity. Besides, my post wasn't meant for them.

Well, the truth is that this forum is for users. Nobody from AT&T corporate will see it. A very few number of employees post here, all off the clock. The help agents that post here are technical support (the same as when you call 800-288-2020.)

You can like it or not, but that's the truth.
