Is Longhorn Network on different tiers in different areas? I know Spectrum has it, but if you're a legacy TW customer, you won't get it unless the account is converted to a Spectrum one.
I wonder if AT&T is pushing for higher tiers outside of ACC territory. It wouldn't make sense from an AT&T standpoint for customers in Seattle and LA to get it on a basic tier.
Given that the #1 NCAAF team (Clemson) is in the ACC (and has already had an ACCN-exclusive game that was not on AT&T services), there may be some interest in ACC outside the east coast. Similar to the argument for SECN and Alabama. SEC and the ACC cover a large swath of AT&T territory.
But you're right, this is likely a sticking point. And the Longhorn network is in different tiers in AT&T services depending on location.

Yes, the LHN is tiered differently for different areas. In Texas and others, it's in a lower level package, outside of that, it's in a higher level pack.
I don't think it's a tier issue in terms of the ACCN. The ACCN deal with DirecTV and other carriers is actually in a fairly high package outside of the ACC states. It's been one of the more shocking things about the ACCN deals, it's not being required in low tiers like the BTN (FOX owned) and SECN was.
Their issue with Disney likely stems from the rate, the amount of channels that are included (lower level Disney channels, ABC networks, etc.). Ultimately though, I struggle to see how ATT allows ESPN to get dropped at all. They know me, and tons of others would drop them immediately

I love ATT NOW. But im switching over Hulu Live because they have ACC Network. I from North Carolina and i watch a lot Carolina Tarheel Sports. The networks are making it really hard for customers to enjoy the team's they like. I now live in florida and im screwed once again. GET The ACC NETWORK. Please!

I'm leaving ATTNow due to not having ACC network and now my NFL channel is not apart of my package anymore. So long ATT thanks for being up front and honest!

I had Directv and started to have reception issues so they sent out a technician. He said a tree limb was blocking our satellite and that he would not move the dish because he didn’t do “band aid” fixes and the tree would keep growing. 2 minutes after he left a U-verse rep showed up at my door and sold me with a channel lineup that included CBS and NFL network. Didn’t have CBS for 2 months and now don’t have NFL network. Also don’t have The ACC network. Can someone explain to me how AT&T can successfully negotiate terms for these channels on Directv and not U-VERSE? Called and spoke to a U-verse rep and she basically blamed it on the NFL network and said I could go to TV Promise.com and voice my opinion. I’m going to UTube TV instead.

I have a question regarding dropping Uverse. I have an agreement with them that keeps the current price package until March of 2020. I still cannot get NBC in my local area. Also we have lost the Pursuit channel & I'm sure others I don't watch. If they lose all of the Disney channels can I drop the tv package without them trying to charge me an exit fee? It would seem to me that if they cannot provide me with the agreed upon product why should I have to pay to drop them.

ATT can do anything they want to the channel lineup as per these terms of service (8. INTERRUPTIONS, LIMITATIONS, AND MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICE). You are paying for a TV service, not specific individual channels

I don’t understand why ATT Uverse doesn’t carry the ACC Network. The ACC has the #1 football team in the country. The Conference has teams from Massachusetts, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida .
What’s wrong with ATT? They’re making HULU look better everyday !

The contract between AT&T and Disney is currently up for renewal.
This is a "user to user" forum, so nobody here knows the current status of the negotiations other than what the internet says, but it's believed that ACC Network is part of the negotiations.
