Loss of channels

AT&T has failed to properly prepare for the  anticipated end of contract negotiation with Nexstar - resulting in the loss of ABC station, a MAJOR network. This continues to happen, as in the past, when other channels were removed from the lineup - as your customers continue to pay increased costs in service. We set up another TV(purchased an antennae) that would give us this basic channel for the interim - assuming we will get the channel back at some time in the future!  I think it's time to contact other providers who can provide continuing service that we PAY for and don't get with AT&T.

You can Google the station or go to the station website and look. Usually at the bottom of the page etc.

Nobody knows when NexStar will allow DirecTV to provide their stations again.

Call DirecTV to ask about an account credit .... 1 800 531 5000

And ask them about getting the free Local Channel Connector so that you can receive those channels using an off-air antenna.

Why???? Right before football??? Do what it takes to get the job done! I am with you one yr. I will have to switch to something else.  The ONLY reason I came was for your sports coverage and now FOX and NBC?? AT&T Direct TV  has plenty of money to take care of their customers!!! I want a refund 


Of course. NexStar purposely picked this time before NFL season to withhold their stations from DirecTV, demanding more $$$. 

AT&T's "plenty of money" comes from our subscription fees. I'm glad that they're playing hardball with increasingly greedy station owners. 

Call DirecTV to ask for an account credit .... 1 800 531 5000.  And also ask for their Local Channel Connector kit so you get those stations with an off-air antenna for FREE.

DirecTV is forbidden by Federal regulations from providing you a different local channel. They are only allowed to provide you the locals in your Designated Market Area (DMA), and only with the channel's permission. The locals would lose a lot of power without this regulation.

 

Unless DirecTV has restarted the referral program, then there is no credit as it ended years ago.

 

"As of December 15, 2016, the Refer-a-Friend program has ended. If you referred a friend before December 15, 2016, or were referred yourself, you will continue to receive your bill credits."
