I thought you would be out spending your $20 Ace pay and your $5 dollar bill credit. Does AT&T send you a W2 or trust you to report your income?

Wait, ACEs get paid and get bill credits? Where's mine?! Since you know so much about it, maybe you can put in a good word for me with the higher-ups because the only thing I get being here is free entertainment.

 

In my call center day job, I'm paid to be nice and friendly. If AT&T was giving me anything to be here, I'd have to be a lot nicer.

Awww.... @QuarryRye   Don't say you never got anything.  Here's a lovely edible arrangement for all your hard work (I used to give a set of steak knives but the mods frowned up sharp objects. Smiley LOL )

AT@T is the most corrupt company on the planet and is not capable of respecting its customers.

Really? Have you not heard of Facebook and how it's spying on and tracking its own customers, even when you specifically tell it not to? Or Uber who exploits its drivers, uses data it stole from other companies, and killed someone with its self-driving car? How about Deutsche Bank, pocketing and laundering money from dictatorships and criminals? Or Russia's Internet Research Agency, tasked with manipulating political elections and using troll farms to cause dissent and chaos around the world? AT&T isn't a very moral company but its charging too much and refusing to pay channels doesn't even put it in the top ten. Open your eyes, man.

Re: AT&T Hates its Uverse Sports Fans - Is this your new motto?

They're obviously winding down UVERSE with hopes we'll switch to their streaming or Directv.  Won't happen with me. I have a good deal for now but when that's up I'm gone.  Losing NFLN and RZ was it for me.  I got Sling for those 2 channels and happily watched the game last night.  Lots of TV options out there. AT&T won't miss my money. And I won't miss them.

Re: AT&T Hates its Uverse Sports Fans - Is this your new motto?

@Jimmy2019 Yes and no. The future TV system will either be their "not-so-skinny" bundle, this new thing or DirecTV. In about 10-15 years when the DirecTV satellites die of "old age", then that'll be it for DirecTV.

 

With that said, U-Verse will still be sold in all markets...until the new product rolls out in that market. Once that happens, people with U-Verse will be "grandfathered" in until further notice...but if you leave U-Verse, you can't go back.

 

Let's see what happens with this new service. Obviously, it's still very young, so it's impossible to determine what channels will/won't be on it when it becomes available in a certain market.

 

As far as NFL Network, most of those Thursday night games are on Amazon Prime or a local channel, such as Fox. I think the ones that are exclusive are still on local TV in those markets. As far as RedZone, I subscribed to a gray-market NFL Sunday Ticket package and I can bounce around between free trials of PS Vue, Sling, etc.

Re: AT&T Hates its Uverse Sports Fans - Is this your new motto?

@baseballisback interested in knowing how you bounce around in the streaming trials. Some are as short as just one week. Some might be as long as a month. NFL season is just getting started, so how is there a trial to last the length of the season?

Re: AT&T Hates its Uverse Sports Fans - Is this your new motto?

Don't sign up until the last possible moment. For example, when a show like GoT airs, many times, there's a weekend free preview for all potential customers that first weekend. Simply tune in and it'll be there. Don't call for a special offer until the Friday before the second episode airs. Politely threaten to cancel and twist their arm a bit. Say the best they can do for HBO is three months and it's a 4-5 month show. What they've also been known to do is discount internet and the U-200 or U-300. At the worst, you can use that discount to pay for HBO.

 

Cancel the last day of that offer and wait to subscribe (via calling in) until the last moment.

 

By doing things the "last moment", you've extended the last day of the offer or the month, whatever.

 

As far as RedZone, there's PS Vue, Sling TV and RedZone. I have my regular credit card and my debit card. I figure that's three Sundays if I wait until Sunday AM to sign up. If I can go "one service after the other" then maybe I can use the same card again for another preview by using a different email address or the other card, etc.

 

I also picked the address of an apartment, plugged that into the Sunday Ticket website and paid for that via an app like Google Pay or PayPal. This gets me the "Red Zone Channel" which is the version that comes with Sunday Ticket. It's a different host and it may be different games at the same time, but it's the same concept...like watching a parade on ABC while your neighbor watches CBS.

Re: No NFL Redzone

Xfinity is being installed Tuesday. I will get NFL, RedZone, and ACC Network. My internet will triple in speed and I actually will save a few bucks too.

Re: NFL...NFL...NFL...

Hi There @sqtucker16,

 

We can help provide more information.

 

The NFL Network and Red Zone remain available to all fans on DIRECTV.  However, as we continue to manage content costs, we could not reach an agreement with the NFL to continue to carry those channels on U-verse TV and so they were removed.

 

Now there is a option for you. Did you know that you may be able to get it as a stand-alone product through AT&T?

 

Yes, as long as DirecTV is not in your area or you are a student or where you live can not or will not allow a dish on the property then you are eligible for https://soc.att.com/2Li9Z0n.

 

Please check out NFL Sundays Tickets online steaming service, by clicking on the link above. Now the package that you need is NFL Sunday Ticket Max, which includes Redzone. 

 

If there is anything else that we can do for you, please reach out to us.

 

Thank you for being an AT&T Customer.

 

Matthew, AT&T Community Specialist
