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.

Programming and pricing is subject to change at any time with or without notice, so locals and other channels are never guaranteed with ANY pay tv provider. Nothing was breeched. Locals are FREE over the air with an antenna.

Your CBS owners removed their feed to DTV because they want more money to renew the contract.

DTV is still providing sat channels so are not in a breach of contract plus there is the clause that states that channels and programs are subject to change at anytime so they will not waive the ECF/ETF.  DTV may give you a credit if you call.

Ok I found what you’re talking about. However I do not get HBO. (I told them I didn’t want it) and my price still went up $5.
I would like to know if they are still negotiating to get CBS and others back? I saw that some areas have those Chanel’s now but I don’t.

What package do you have? $5 for what? The last increase was for $10 and prior to that it was for $5.

 

Per Cord Cutters News:

 

https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/att-tv-now-directv-now-are-still-blacking-out-many-local-cbs-stations/

 

AT&T has started to warn some subscribers that as part of this new deal with CBS AT&T must strike a deal with each CBS station’s owners before it can be added back to DIRECTV NOW and AT&T TV NOW. In the past, CBS negotiated on behalf of all the local CBS stations. (That is why all CBS locals went dark when CBS’s contract with AT&T ended.) Now it seems that CBS’s new contract no longer includes rights for independently owned and operated CBS affiliate.
AT&T’s new deal with CBS owned locals, CBS Sports Network, and the Smithsonian Channel all return to AT&T owned streaming service soon. Sadly one thing left out was the fact that some independently owned CBS stations still have to strike a new contract with AT&T.

 

If you have stations owned by Nexstar they are still out to a contract dispute. They own CBS, BCC, aBC, and Fox stations also. You can go to tvpromise.com to check status based on your zip code.

Will I be able to see ALL NFL games with my Total Access - even those on CBS since you are not carrying the local channel?  A $10 credit won't hack it if I lose games.


You will NOT see any NFL games carried on your local CBS station until the dispute with NexStar is settled. Sunday Ticket will include out-of-area games that are NOT carried on a local Fox or CBS channel. In the meantime, get an off-air antenna to view your CBS station the "old fashioned" way.

Thanks. I went there and two points.
It does not list as having a problem with CBS but it does mention the fox stations.
Also I can’t find a way to sign in to check my price increase. I was told that my price would stay the same $45. However they are changing me $50.

I love my Uverse service and do not want to change providers. But, if CBS42 in Birmingham Alabama isn't back on by Labor Day myself and every other AT&T customer in Alabama and anywhere else in the Southeast who can't get CBS will be switching providers. College Football is king in this part of the country. This isn't a threat it just is what it is. I don't blame just AT&T, I blame Nexstar as well but we will have no choice. If it CBS didn't air the SEC game of the week I would never watch CBS again.
