Should I be the first to say it? The number would be twice or three times the amount if U-Verse had The Hallmark Channel, AMC HD, beIn Sports, Comcast Sports Houston, and The NHL Network.    Smiley Happy

 

Oh, I almost forgot, sub-channels, too.

I meant BBC HD, not AMC HD. My error.

Can you imagine how many subscribers U-Verse would have if they carried the sub-channels of the sub-channels?
The lack of RFD- TV is chasing away millions upon millions of subscribers. Old time test patterns with the Indian. That could bring in so many subscribers that U-Verse would have to turn people away.

I don't remember seeing any Indians from India on any test patterns.

They are Indians, I'm from Oklahoma and we have Indian tribes, not native american tribes. We even have a toll road called the Indian Nation Turnpike.

Why am I not surprized. AT&T is a total monopoly in several markets and that is the only alternative to getting decent television and in some areas High-Speed Internet.

You really need to look up the definition of monopoly.

Really, I'd venture to guess there are at least 3 providers available, AT&T, Dish and Direct.  That blows your theory of a monopoly.

In years past, cable companies had exclusive arrangements with municipalities. That could be called a monopoly in some sort of a way.

 

In the 1980's the St. Louis area was carved up by the cable companies so that each served an area exclusively without competition from other cable companies. Of course, there was competition with satellite companies.

 

The St. Louis suburb where I live became the first that allowed two cable companies to compete within it's borders.

 

As far as calling U-Verse television a monopoly in some markets, I disagree. From reading posts on these forums, the writers are always mentioning the cable or satellite company from which they came or which they were going. This ability to switch providers does not spell monopoly to me.

 

Can anyone indicate a city, town, county, etc where the only alternative is U-Verse? That means no other cable or satellite alternatives are available.

Re: U-verse Now Has Over 5.0 Million TV Customers - 2nd Qtr 2013

hard to believe ATT monopoly in tv provider when they only have 5% of market share

top 13 providers have 94% of market 

top 9 cable companies lost 555,000 sbscribers in 2nd quarter. at end of 2q had 50.5 million subs

dish and direct tv lost 162,000 in same quarter............................at end of 2q had 34 million subs

only good news telcos (verison and att) added 373,000...........at end of 2q had10.03 million subs

 

total represented is 94.53 comprising 94% of share total subscibers 100 million plus subs

 

conclusion cord cutting is real, people are leaving standard choices of cable and satellite

only growth is telcos offerings...for how long is the question
