Is NFL Network on AT&T U-verse?

When are Uverse TV customers going to start receiving "NFL Network"?  Training camps have started.

Lies lies and more lies.

They lost almost a million subscribers in the second quarter knocking them down to number two behind Comcast. I’m for everybody here seeing if we can knock them down further. Call the competition folks. You have nothing to lose and might even be pleasantly surprised.

You're kidding, right ATTCARES? 

 

You are putting forth extremely limited availability of the Sunday Ticket in a forum that says "Watching U-Verse-TV" when you know darn well that no one with U-Verse qualifies. 

 

The loss of the NFL Network and the NFL Redzone will cost AT&T significantly and if published media reports are accurate, it's all because the NFL wants to make the Sunday Ticket available to people like me - that don't want DirectTV or to switch providers so AT&T got mad. No wonder you lost 1 million subscribers... 

 

Between this and Nexstar...

At&t, thanks for being the ONLY provider not offering the NFL Network for customers. Why do I feel like the whole dropping of the NFL Network was due to the unwillingness to expand Sunday ticket beyond DirecTV? Several pre-season games are airing on the NFL Network, but I guess I don't get to watch them unless I change providers.

 

DirecTV customers don't get Sunday ticket for free do they? Why can't NFL Network be put back on the lineup and those that want the Sunday ticket can get it as an add on?

I have seen multiple promotions through the years that involve a customer signing up for DirecTV and getting some sort of rebate/discount on Sunday Ticket. I'm not sure to the exact details, but I know the promos exist.

@baseballisback Everytime I see an ad for DirecTV, it always mentions the inclusion of the NFL Sunday Ticket. I now think that it is with select packages.

 

I probably would not have the Sunday Ticket option if I got the lowest tier package offered by DirecTV. My belief over the NFL Network dispute and the subsequent dropping of the channel was due to the desire of the NFL to expand the Sunday Ticket option. So, why not just put the NFL Network back on the air and offer the NFL Ticket option as a sports package add-on? Even if I got the highest package level offered by Uverse, I wouldn't have every single sports channel, right?

 

It's unfortunate that among all the major providers, that AT&T has decided to be the ONLY ONE to NOT offer the NFL Network. It's almost like they just simply gave up and just said "oh well, customers won't have access to that channel anymore."

U-verse is a dying tv service, they are probably not going to pick up any new sport channels. At&T is going to roll out a new service in the fall  called At&T TV which is direct tv without need for a satellite. Once AT&T TV is rolled out in your area they will stop selling u-verse in your area, leaving existing u-verse subscribers to slowly wither away. Direct tv carries the nfl network, acc network , etc, so your best bet could be to wait for AT&T TV   https://www.att.com/tv/

So it's either switch to DirecTV which has the NFL Network (then hopefully
get the antenna being offered) or sit around and wait for the slow rollout
of the new At&t TV.

Supposedly it is going to be rolled out in test cities aug 19, with it being rolled out nationwide in  4th quarter 2019. In the cities they offer it, they will stop selling u-verse, leaving their u-verse subscribers to slowly wither away like people that still use windows 7.

Or you could just change providers like 930,000 people did in the first half of this year alone. By the end of the year that number should easily top 2 million.

First they turned off both the local NBC station and the local CBS station.  Now they've turned off NFL Network too?

 

Oh, and with no notification or apology to me that it happened or when.  Just found out one day when I went to watch a program I thought I had purchased the right to watch.  AT&T just literally reneged on their promised offering of channels from when I signed up with them.

 

I guess it's time to kick at&t uverse off the island, and go try out the competition.

@Nelson67 For what it's worth, AT&T/Nexstar didn't want to announce the possibility of NBC being turned off because both parties thought they were close to an agreement and then they just gave up on negotiating and this is what we're left with; no NBC without an antenna for a month now. As for CBS, a last minute deal was reached to allow that to be turned back on, that is unless your CBS station is Nexstar owned in which case it will still be off. If you search Nexstar and AT&T, you'll see statements indicating that neither side is too optimistic about the quick resolution of this dispute.

 

As for the NFL Network, well, the NFL claims that it never heard anything from AT&T until the NFL Network and Red Zone were removed from Uverse. AT&T will claim that it couldn't reach an agreement to keep it on Uverse, but of course there's been the very long term agreement and exclusivity of the NFL Sunday and DirecTV so of course it's still available to DirecTV customers.

Guess again. The terms and conditions of all TV providers state that the programming can change at any time. Notice was given on this forum, in USA Today and at programmingchanges.att.com.

 

But have fun leaving your new provider when they can't come to terms with channel owners.

I ALONG WITH THOUSANDS OF OTHER CUSTOMERS WOULD LIKE AN HONEST ANSWER REGARDING THE RETURN OF NFL CHANNEL TO UVERSE. PLEASE DONT INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE IN SAYING THAT YOU COULDNT REACH AN AGREEMENT WHEN IN FACT YOU NEVER APPROACHED THEM TO NEGOTIATE! YOU INCREASE RATES, WE PAY THOSE EXTRA FEES AND WE STILL ARE ON THE LOSING END OF THE DEAL. WE PAY YOU TO PROVIDE THINGS WE ARE INTRESTED IN WATCHING. YOU HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH OTHER GARBAGE ON THAT NO ONE CARES TO WATCH, YET YOU REMAIN DEAF TO OUR REQUESTS!!! NOT HAPPY IN DALLAS, TX (A TRUE FOOTBALL FAN)

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled RETURN OF NFL CHANNEL TO UVERSE

Nfl network coming back to u-verse is highly doubtful, as they start to wind down u-verse, and point people to their new service which is direct tv without need  for a dish, in the future they will stop selling u-verse , so if you really like u-verse  don't cancel ,as you may not be able to  get it again
