I believe AT&T and U-Verse are headquartered in Dallas, Texas. I hope I was able to answer your question.

Once BBC America went HD in 2009, it took four years for AT&T U-verse to add the HD channel even though they have always carried the standard def channel, so I figure it could take up to that long.

With today's polarizing political climate it may be years and years beyond that.

It's not going to be on U-Verse until the situations that I will not mention (I don't believe I'm allowed to) are delt with. Maybe it won't be at all. 

 

Not a bad network. Too bad it wasn't on from the start.

Uverse is surviving without it.

If you owned stock in a company, is that what you want to hear the CEO tout in their next quarterly earnings report?

 

"Hey, we're surviving.  That's good enough, right?"

So why would at&t add it as they are being sued?


Why not?  Olive branch, anyone?  There must be a reason for them to take that course of action, say an existing agreement?   It's that kind of bully-ish attitude (AT&T's not Fox Mulder's) that most likely led to a non-agreement beytween AT&T and Crown on Hallmark.  Someone at AT&T probably got their feelings hurt and packed up their marbles and went away, crying.

Re: Al Jazeera America Absent from U-Verse TV

That's an excellent question.  I think it's a real shame that AJA isn't currently available on U-verse, it would have been a welcome source of reported news, as opposed to the dueling-opinion filler on the American cable "news" networks.  AT&T's decision not to carry it, whatever their reasons, actually has me considering satellite TV (I've been a very happy U-verse customer otherwise).

That is why they are different services. Good luck if you leave Uverse.

Penguin, Comcast carries AJA if you are interested and able to get it.  I too am thinking of leaving these **** as well.

While I don't like to see AT&T U-verse getting sued, I hope this action will eventually lead to AJ getting added.
