AT&T u-verse does not carry the CW?

[ Edited ]

On another forum they suggested going to this site:  http://www.cwtv.com/thecw/stations/ to see if The CW is in your area.  I checked mine and The CW is only available with Comcast/Xfinity or over-the-air.  So where I live uverse users are currently hosed!

I hate that you were lied to, too.  BUT I'm sorry - I read your post - and it still doesn't matter.  I just am more proactive than that.  Maybe to a fault.  

 

I never post any attacks.  You must have me confused with someone else.  I'm just keeping it real.  If you check my profile, I joined this forum 4-5 months before I ever got U-Verse (installed Oct 2008).  I researched, researched and researched before I spend over $1000 a year on something.  I trust no one when I'm doing such a major switch to being truthful.

 

Was this a d2d sales person?  In an AT&T store oir where?  You could contact  AT&T Customer Care, and ask them to investigate your grievance.

In Chicago on Uverse the CW's on 9/1009 btw.[not on a subchannel]


Thanks, it just depends on whether the local CW affiliate is on a main broadcast channel (UV carries) or a subchannel (UV does not).  I do wish AT&T would carry the DTV subs.  They are not proactive ion that regard.  It REALLY blows if you live in or around Toledo, Ohio.  The CW is a virtual channel (closed circuit) and is only carried by a couple of cable companies, who own the thing.  Talk about restraint of trade!

 

Luckily, AT&T has said that they would carry the CW, Nationally, but no idae when.

Actually you asking that question is rather vague.  Most UVerse sales people and/or customer service agents do not have UVerse themselves and as such they cannot in all truthfulness tell you channel for channel what is different.  The channel lineup is available online for your zip code and checking it was the first thing I did prior to ordering 3 years ago.  It's updated every time a new channel is added as well as when a channel such as Hallmark or NHL Network have been removed.  CW Network is in some broadcast areas as a local option just not all. So while you did not recieve the answer you were looking for, the agent you spoke with more than likely wasn't attempting to give you misinformation.

You're assuming the salesman not only knows every detail about the new car, but also about your old car. How would the salesman know if your old car has an unusual feature like voice-activated sunroof?

I'm so mad. I just got AT&T Uverse and it doesn't have the CW on it. I watch a few shows on that channel and am not happy that they don't have it. They did at one time. What happened?

Where are you located? Did you check what channels are available in your area before you signed up for U-Verse? A little research would have given you an answer before you chose U-Verse.

It depends on where you live and whether your CW network is a subchannel or a broadcast channel. In areas where it's a broadcast channel it's available, such as Dallas, in others where it's a sub channel it's not carried.

According the the CW guide channel 31 and 1031 on UVerse in Sacramento is the CW, but it come up as KCRA.  Hmmm.

According to the U-Verse channel list, KCRA (NBC) should be on 3/1003 and KMAX (CW) should be on 31/1031.  Please look / try again.
