Only getting local channels

Only getting local channels

This just started happening a few minutes ago. Everything except local channels went out on me here in Houston, TX area. The screen on non local channels says the TV signal has been lost. A call to U-Verse TV support @ 800.288.2020 just gives me a busy signal. Rebooted gateway & receivers, no luck.

ALL: power was interrupted at the VOC and all National Channels are down and still remain down. Efforts are underway to restore the power and reset the equipment as quickly as possible.

Why am I only getting local channels on uVerse today?

I am only getting local channels.  Screen says that signal has been lost and gives me options to reset which have not worked.  What is going on with uVerse TV?

Re: Only local channels working on uverse

Me too. I've tried calling customer service and got a busy signal multiple times before finally getting in. When I pressed 1 for English, it rang and then told me my call could not be complete as dialed.

 

Getting kinda ticked here.

Re: Only getting local channels

Thank you

 

Will ATT U-verse customers receive a credit on their account for the inconvenience?

Re: Only getting local channels

I thought I was the only one. Glad to see it's not just me. Are you getting a code as well that says something like GUID: 43f77b0b-89ef-42f7-846b-3ad99411882a ?

Hi. Need Support?!

Hi. Is there a broad reaching problem with U-Verse TV today? Why can I not reach support today? My Uverse TV is down. Chat says no agents available and no option to wait. Have been on hold 45 minutes thus far with no answer at support.  Have done all the troubleshooting and attempted to use troubleshoot app but it timed out with an error saying try again later.  Not cool! Please help.

Re: Only getting local channels

First Hallmark, then the NHL Network, then ESPN 3D, then no Al Jazeera, and now no channels at all. This is AT$T's plan to charge us multiple hundreds of dollars each month, and just give us only local channels (and no sub-channels to boot). I see through their whole dastardly, evil plan.
