No, DTV doesn't remove channels the owners of the channel removes the feed.

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

Doesn't DirecTV negotiate with the channel owner to broadcast the channel?

Yes, you are paying AT&T for the service. However, AT&T can only provide the content that is given to them, and if a network is withholding content, then AT&T can't broadcast it. And seeing how this is not just an issue with AT&T, but with other providers, you have to wonder who is really the villain here.

All.

 

As Altitude Sports and Entertainment has publicly communicated, our agreement with them expires this Saturday, 8/31. DIRECTV has made a very fair offer to Altitude. We remain on the side of consumer choice and value, and our negotiations reflect that.

Not a solution...customers want their channels, that's our choice.

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

DO NOT DROP MY AVS AND NUGGETS. The only reason I continue to have Direct TV is the altitude sports network. I am a die hard Avs fan in south Texas. The second you drop Altitude is the second I cancel my subscription. Please work it out. 🙏🏻

 

Go AVS!

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

I join the rest of the folks on this thread that will drop DirecTV is you drop Altitude Sports.  It is really the only reason I have not "cut the chord".  I am also very dissatisfied in the way that negotiations have proceeded with Nexstar regarding my local Fox station.  "Another brick in the wall".

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

I've had DirecTV for 20+ years.  Always loved it and been an advocate.  But I've been seriously considering a streaming service and the only thing that made me stay with DirecTV was Altitude Sports.  If it's gone, I'm gone.

I have been a DirecTV subscriber for over 20 years.  I am a regular viewer of Altitude TV.  I will be dropping my subscription if you drop Altitude.  The channel is that important to me.  Your product quality and service has been in decline for many years now and this would be enough for me to finally call it quits.  Show me that you put your customers first.  DO NOT LOSE ALTITUDE TV!!

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

To Whom it May Concern:
I am a longtime AT&T and DIRECTV customer and am writing to express my concern for the possible loss of AltitudeTV from your programming. As viewing services have evolved to include more streaming options I have considered cancelling service with DIRECTV. However, live sports and particularly those carried by Altitude network are the main reason I have continued service. If the network is dropped from the DIRECTV lineup I may have to drop service all together. And without television service bundled to my family mobile plan I would be very tempted to move to Vrezon for mobile coverage. Please take this into consideration as negotiations continue.

Sincerely,


Alex Romero

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

DTV/AT&T have no control over a channels programming.

So DTV/AT&T caves and then passes the bigger increase on to their customers and lose them because the rates are to high or they stand their ground pass a smaller increase on to their customers and lose them because they don't have their favorite channel.

So in your opinion the channel is being greedy and DirecTV and AT&T are just doing what they can?

Re: Why would directv be dropping Altitude Sports channel?

I won't say that I'm ready to point fingers at anyone, but I do find it suspicious that at least 3 different companies that provide TV service have lost access to the Altitude channel within a week, and Altitude was quick to place blame and start a mob against all of them
