Possibly Losing DirectTV Channels - ABC, ESPN, DISNEY and others

This is beyond frustrating and must stop. Today across the bottom of my TV a message explained how DirectTV may lose ABC, ESPN, Disney, Freeform and others. It is crazy that us customers may possibly lose channels we watch daily. We just went through this 2 months ago with CBS and other channels we watch. DirectTV needs to do something to make this stop before losing the channels or we will be forced to take our business elsewhere where the company fights for their customers. Ridiculous!!

I know because of a price increase we have been without NBC. When will it be added back to our package?  If it is not coming back we will stop using U-Verse.

We might be able to advise you what station owner is holding your NBC hostage if we knew where you lived.  Otherwise, you'll have to provide the call sign to identify it.  In any case, and whoever they are, when they reach an agreement with AT&T about how much more AT&T has to pay them to carry their "free over the air" programming, they will allow AT&T to carry their signal again. 

  • You could switch to another Pay TV service, but that will result in you being knocked off again sooner (because their retransmit agreement will likely run out before AT&T's next renewal)
  • You could put up an Antenna and watch it over the air for free (that's what I did July and August when Sinclair withheld consent from AT&T for my local CBS station).

I am totally becoming a dissatisfied customer of AT&T Uverse TV. Our area has been without the NBC channel for several months now and yet our bill continues to rise. We are paying for a national channel that we no longer receive. Not being able to watch NBC is bad enough, but the fact we still pay for it should be illegal. Come on AT&T. Show that you care about your customers. Either get the channel back, or give all affected a rebate on their bill. I may soon become an ex customer.
