There is an announcement that: “Starting at 8:00 p.m. EST on November 30, WCNC may not be available on DIRECTV and AT&T U-Verse.”   Does this include AT&T TV NOW subscribers??

WCNC is the NBC affiliate for local News and programing for the North and South Carolina.

According to the AT&T disputes page (here) there is a contract renewal dispute with the owner of WCNC (Tegna), which potentially affects all of the AT&T video services.  They say that Tegna often does this, frequently works it out before the deadline, and if not, usually resolves it after a few day blackout.  But these disputes (over how much the station owner charges the carrier - AT&T TV Now in your case - to allow carriage) sometimes run much longer.
