Disable Press Ok To Watch

Hello,

 

I am new to the att u-verse, and i am curious is here a way to disable this menu, i find it whoever decide that menu should get seriously fired. Why would i power on my tv just to be ask if i wanna watch tv? like how does that make any sense there not even a logic behind it.

 

People tell me to just switch to TV and when im done watching to just turn the tv off leaving the box on, which i have done but my box automatically turns off after some point in the day. Now it not the fact that it just 1 menu, i watch the same channel everyday and the probability of me changing to a different channel is close to .01%

 

The provider which i had before is TWC is was pretty much turn on and done, i switch to ATT cause it was cheaper. I mean unless ATT is trying to tell us "well you get what you pay for". My grandpa is like 89 years old and for 40 years with twc all he had to do is push power and bam he on his channel. Switching to ATT is constantly nag me about what the stupid menu "Press Ok to watch tv". He even says there is no logic behind having a screen that ask to watch tv when obviously i hit power on the remote to watch tv.

 

He old and has no idea what he doing 99% of the time, He just wanna watch tv, everytime that menu comes up he think the tv down or something and doesnt even bother watching which is a waste of money.

 

People pay for the service to use the service. 

 

So i am suggesting 3 option which i know ATT doesn't probably give a rats butt about us.

 

1: Allow us to leave the box on 24/7

2: Get Rid of the "Press Ok to watch TV" 

 

or 

 

3: Leave the stupid screensaver up but have it automatically closed after 3 sec

 

I wanna know if the CEO of ATT ever wonder why he or she is told to watch tv press ok, when technically speaking if someone picks up a remote especially the remote for the cable box to turn it on they obvously wanna watch tv. It would make more sense if the tv was turned on by the TV remote not by the u-verse box and it was asked that.

Or... I know it’s crazy.. but having the TV that I’m paying for stay on as long as I want it to. Crazy thought but my electricity usage isn’t AT&Ts concern and if I want to leave it on and playing that should be my decision not theirs.

Bravo Christi!

 

Ace Master says to the customer: Umm I'm sorry Miss, the air conditioner we rent to you isn't working, Oh! no problem, you need to try using a fan.  Your pet isn't really interested in the temperature, only the movement of the air.  This will do.

Yes let’s now allow AT&T the power to regulate how long I can binge on a channel Talk about taking away someone’s right to donas they please with a service that is paid for. But in today’s day and age regulation and taking away freedoms is the norm. Just didn’t think it would reach my TV viewing.

No dog can overheat. Air condioning is very important. Dogs can die from heat so I make sure the air conditioner gets serviced to make sure they don’t get too hot.
Wanna try again?

Not the best analogy.  

 

My only choice is Uverse.  So... I'm stuck with it.  We will sell the house soon and be done with it for good.  The Internet is slow, the tv boxes are out dated and just terrible.  It's over priced as well for what we get.  Wireless receivers should be marketed as a 8 foot max option only.  Etc, etc.

Wow!  How can the community and very likely the developers, managers and directors at ATT just sit back and live the "it is what it is" mentality?
