NFL Network & RedZone are gone

Can anyone, preferably from AT&T, tell me if NFL Network & RedZone are no longer being carried on U-verse? At 4:15pm today I tried to go to channels 1629 & 1630, but what I saw was a message saying “This channel is no longer carried” and there was a reference to TVpromise.org. First time I’ve ever seen that message. To me, that isn’t just that the NFL Network is offline with broadcast issues. It’s that U-verse has dropped those two channels. Anyone else have this issue or heard anything about it?

I have never been more livid with a company in my 53 years on this planet.  When I called they said that they are not in negotiations with NFL and will not be carrying it anymore.  The whole reason we have the tier that includes the NFL Network is for NFL Network.  And no discounts for them not carrying it anymore.  We can't have dishes in our community and still have 6 months on our current contract.  We're screwed!!!!!  F You AT&T!!!  This is not how you treat loyal, long time customers.  We got you the day you could (over 10 years ago).

We started using Sling last night...has a he content like NFL Network, local sports for Brewers and Bucks Fox Sports North, also TCM ,etc. so we are going to get local channels next and cut the AT&T cord on Cable TV.

Thanks. We started Sling last night. Priority #1 was getting our NFL Network back. We have that with the Blue Service and of course other content as well. Now we will take time figuring out the best value for the content we want.

I feel your pain ! We are now Slingers and back on track with the NFL Network. I a a Draft junkie and have been studying the 2019 College Prospects. Our family was a Swim Club (and Hockey) family for many years. In Wisconsin we love our Packers they are #1 above everything else. UW has had much success as well as our Milwaukee Brewers and Bucks.

Regarding the actual Draft Day(s) coverages itself there are options.
But I am watching In advance of he NFL Draft because I enjoy evaluating prospects and find the business of the NFL intriguing. So in essence if you do not have an interest in diving deep into your team needs and the college prospects that may help your franchise not having the NFL Networks “ Path to the Draft “ Show is not a big deal.
In our area the NFL is #1 and our Stadium has been sold out for over 50 years with a 20 year wait for season tickets. People literally bequeath season tickets to their estates.

Yikes. It’s business ... big business and the NFL has the program content to leverage that into profitability. That (on paper) provides owners and the players union a challenge of figuring out how to divide the pie with next contract. That will not be an easy contract to get done because there is a lot of money on the table.

In General Cable is pricey and of that is relative to your personal financial priorities. Many people can not afford Cable so they elect not to pay for it others elect to purchase it for any number of reasons.
My point is that I am paying for a service AT&T prided at a cost ( $100.+/ month) and now I am playing the same amount without the full service that was provided when we elected to purchase AT&T Uverse. So my perceived value of the cable provider has been diminished and for me it has been diminished beyond repair. That is how important the NFL Network is to this household. Hope you understand our perspective.

Obviously the NFL has incredible bargaining power. Extra revenue is coming from all directions, including overseas and the new gambling sources. It was beyond laughable a couple of years ago when a certain faction tried to pretend the NFL was dying. The salary cap will explode. Russell Wilson eventually signed a new record-breaking deal with the Seahawks last night. But there were reports that Wilson was aware of the salary cap inevitability so be wanted his contract to include a percentage of the salary cap by year, instead of a dollar number. That would change the dynamic around the league, and not in the owner's favor. Seattle gave in to a contract far above its early ceiling, but did so partially to prevent that cap-percentage from becoming a trend.

Agree 100%.... new deals are coming ... thanks to demand for streaming content especially the game coverage. The live game product is such an area for growth that the TV Cable deals are getting caught in the winds of change.

I agree with you. Never fun when change hits the pocket book. We will be using our Apple TV and have signed up for Sling so we can get through the NFL Draft time frame and then regroup on a long term strategy

Hang in there

The timing of this really is incredible. When I was in college the draft was 12 rounds. I used to take 12 manilla folders and extend them fully, while using a magic marker to neatly write the name of every team and its selection for every round. Then I taped the folders to our living room wall directly behind the TV...2 rows of 6 rounds apiece. For the final month or so of the spring semester we would sit there on the couch and often debate the various rounds and which teams aced and which ones screwed up. Visitors to our apartment would initially be shocked but then they'd join in as well. Fortunately we were all sports minded so I never had a roommate who complained or demanded I take it down. I would walk around campus with the Joel Buchsbaum Draft Preview from Pro Football Weekly, and a couple of other similar versions from that era.

 

Decades later AT&T wants to pretend none of that ever happened, and removal of NFL Network shouldn't bother me in the least. As long as I can accidentally press "1" on the remote and be siphoned to "On Demand," everything is jolly in their world.
