This is completely true, but at the same time, it's an interesting business decision. From what I've heard, AT&T would really love their customers to migrate towards DirecTV, as that costs them less per subscriber. At the same time, they're rolling out GigaFiber. A few years ago, they stopped rolling out U-Verse (4 streams) to new cities, but would continue to "fill in gaps" in local neighborhoods.
Why do both?
I recently installed uverse with fiber optic to the condo building. Signal of course comes to my apartment on phone lines. I am happy with speed and lack of glitches -- no pixelations yet, picture clear and strong consistently. Only problem is managing dvr recordings; total of four tuners in dvr becomes a problem. I hope att will not drop tv, but this sounds like that "fake news" stuff that is designed to sound sensational. Trouble is that it's just a business decision, therefore possible?
How can we improve?
