Re: BBC America HD

I've seen what a good job of rhe channel reqest site has done. I'm sure there has been a overwhelming demand for Justice Central over BBC America HD.

Maybe it's just cheaper to add some channels as opposed to others.  Business decisions are made based on the Benjamins not on emotion.

Also remember that when the SD version of a channel is already carried, the provider may want to wait until contract negotiation time to add the HD version of the channel. The provider has more negotiation leverage in that situation which can reduce the cost of the whole channel bundle.

Good one. I'm sure the servers were flooded with requests for Gane ShowHD as well.

Unfortunately, the answer is no. We are U-Verse subscribers just like you so we do not have any inside information whether or not AT&T is negotiating to add BBC America-HD to the U-Verse lineup.

 

AT&T does not give out information about negotiation status. You will know if U-Verse is adding BBC America-HD when there is an announcement screen on Channel 1188.

I'm really enjoying Orphan Black and the new season of Doctor Who. Too bad BBCA still isn't available in HD... Smiley Sad

Dr Who is looking godawful in regular definition.  There's really no excuse to have such a popular channel sans HD in this day and age

It is unbelieveable that Comcast, DISH, Direct can all have this popular channel in HD and U-verse continues to stiff it's subs. Pathetic.

Did you switch back to Comcast after you stated that you would do so on March 24?

I hope that you fingers don't get locked into that position.  AT&T is the only major provider to not have BBC-HD, according to the matrix on the AVS Forums. 

 

The HD lead / innovator status that AT&T once had, is gone.  In some markets, TWC and Brighthouse have 160-163 HD channels (Wide + Limited) while U-Verse has 150.

Re: BBC America HD

I specifically asked the sales representative for my favorite channels and clarified no less than three times before committing that they would be in HD. Not only did the installation not include HD for which I had to inquire separately, but now I discover that BBC America is not available in HD at all? Had the uVerse representative been honest, I would've chosen the Direct TV I had before, which carried BBC America in beautiful HD. Rats.

Very unhappy new subscriber,

Michael
