Please add TyC to the lineup

I'd like to switch to AT&T.  I'm currently on DirecTV, and there is one channel I must have: TyC Sports (channel 427 on DirecTV), also called Torneos y Competencias.  It's a sports network from Argentina that broadcasts most first division soccer games.  I cannot do without it.

 

Now that AT&T has a working arrangement with DirecTV, I would hope they could arrange for TyC to be broadcast over the AT&T network as part of the Spanish package.

 

Does anyone know how to get to the people that could do something about it at AT&T...?

You might want to stay where you are until you actually here the that channel has launched on Uverse.

 

For the most part people just post on here that they want something.  And then sooner or later it could show up.  Here is a link that you could try.

I am actually considering switching to DirectTV because of TyC Sports.

Do you get the same broadcast as in Argentina? Do they black out certain matches like World Cup qualifyers?

Here it is another 2 good reasons to consider Directv: Globo international and PFC... actually these channels are carried by everyone in SouthFlorida ( Directv, Dish, Atlantic, Comcast ) other than Uverse

TyC International (on DirecTV) does not have the same programming as in Argentina.  It has more and less.  All first division matches, except the Sunday highlight match on Fox en Español, are shown, whereas in Argentina most are pay-per-view (TyC Max).

 

On the other hand, in Argentina they show World Cup qualifiers and Copa America, but the International feed does not.

I don't think att working with directtv will have anything to do with it. don't forget that att was working with dish before and it didn't make a difference
