April Carriage Agreements Notice

Below is the latest notice of carriage agreements expiring found in the link below.  Once again, I'm posting this strictly as informative.  It is not intended to stimulate discussion or speculation.

 

 April 17, 2012

 

April 2012:

While we previously announced a possible change, AT&T and the programmer for the following channels agreed to a temporary extension that is now set to expire in April 2012 and, if a reasonable longer term agreement cannot be reached with the programmer, we may lose the rights to carry the following channels (listed in alphabetical order) on U-verse TV in April 2012: Estrella (channel 3024), HD Net (channel 1105 in HD), HRTV (channel 672), New England Sports Network (NESN) (channel 712/713 and 1712/1713 in HD), and Wealth TV (channel 470 and 1470 in HD). In addition, in the San Diego, CA market area, an impacted local channel is KUSI (channel 9 and 1009 in HD).

 

 

May 2012:

While we previously announced a possible change, AT&T and the programmer for the following channels agreed to a temporary extension that is now set to expire in May 2012 and, if a reasonable longer term agreement cannot be reached with the programmer, we may lose the rights to carry the following channels (listed in alphabetical order) on U-verse TV in May 2012: ION, ROOT Sports Northwest (channel 1764), ROOT Sports Pittsburgh (channel 1730), ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain (Channel 1760), and Zee TV (channel 3702).

 

 

AT&T's contracts with programmers for the content displayed on our U-verse TV service periodically expire, but are usually re-negotiated or extended with no interruption or change for our U-verse members. Contract(s) for the programming listed below are set to expire as indicated, and AT&T is making every effort to reach a fair agreement to continue carriage. However, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached with such programmer(s), we will no longer have the rights to carry their programming on U-verse TV. While the programming listed below will continue to be available to U-verse members so long as AT&T has the rights to carry it, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached with the programmer the programming will no longer be available at that time.

I was betting that U-verse was going to drop AMC just like they dropped Hallmark and NHL and that U-verse was going to say "we dropped AMC 'cause we're fighting for you!"  I'm glad I was proved wrong.  Too bad for Dish subscribers though.  Looks like Dish subscribers will never see AMC again.

There is a HUGE difference between AMC and Hallmark. People actually watch AMC programming.  Hallmark's viewership ranks as one of the lowest.  Smiley Very Happy

Glad to see this resolved. I left Dish for all the shenanigans on channel disputes and lawsuits. Looking forward to a new season of  The Walking Dead.

I used to be able to go to att.com/uverseonline to get answers to questions and to find out what was new or what channels we could lose such as AMC.  But it is not there any more.  Where do I go?

Sorry....I meant AMC. I was hyper when I got the notice. I know about the terms and conditions. I paid for a bundle of services which included AMC. The guide I was given shows me that. Breaking the contract with your cable company comes with a cancellation fee. In most cases, you will not be able to avoid paying AT&T the early termination fee (ETF) of $325 minus $10 for each full month of your Service.

As of today, Dish has settled both with AMC and its parent owner Cablevision.  Starting today, Dish will resume carrying AMC, as well as IFC, Sundance and We TV.  Dish will also be adding the music channel Fuse to their lineup on Nov. 1.

And you bumped a 3+ year-old thread about something entirely different in regards to a different TV provider to say so?

 

I'm confused.
