Re: HOW CAN WE GET NEW CHANNELS

Theres a lot involved when adding channels time and money , and some just arent available in certain areas due to fcc restrictions, for instance in this area theres only 1 pbs station available through uverseyet there are 4 transmitting over the airwaves. They cant just flip a switch. Some providers choose to scramble stations they are not authorized to broadcast where at&t chooses not to offer them  and clutter the channells

You absolutely do not need to shout in your first post on this forum. It makes a bad impression.

 

I do not know where you have been, but U-Verse is always adding new channels, and I do not mean just paid informercial or shopping channels.

 

Just because U-Verse has not added any channels that you have asked for, does not mean that they will not in the future. Please read the post after yours from U-Verse employee Constructive.

 

I hope that you are not a One and Done One Post Wonder, and will come back to comment., but something tells me that you won't.

 

How long have you been a U-Verse subscriber?

Besides currently AT&T does not carry sub channels.

Not quite true: There are known examples in the Monterey CA area and Gulfcoast MS.

 

It does sound like there could be some movement on carrying them but it might take a few years........

There is little chance that He will see any sub channels.  Be iffy if He is even a subscriber.

Re: HOW CAN WE GET NEW CHANNELS

SO ARE YOU REALLY AN EMPLOYEE

IF SO PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY YOU CANT CARRY THE SO CALLED SUB CHANNELS

THESE ARENT JUST LOCAL CHANNELS THESE ARE CHANNELS THAT ARE BROADCAST ACROSS THE COUNTRY JUST LIKE FOR EXAMPLE TBS

TBS USED TO JUST BE A CHANNEL CARRIED IN ATLANTA BUT THEN THEY STARTED GETTING BRADCAST ACROSS THE COUNTRY

I DONT SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND SAY

RETRO TV OR ANTENNA TV OR COZI TV

WHY CAN LOCAL CABLE COMPANIES CARRY THEM

HAS ATT EVEN LOOKED INTO CARRYING THESE TYPE CHANNELS

I WOULD RATHER HAVE THESE TYPE CHANNELS THAN

LIFETIME OR OXYGEN OR THE DOZEN SHOPPING CHANNELS

IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT SPACE

STOP ADDING A CHANNEL EVERY WEEK TO ADVERTISE FOR CHEVY TRUCKS OR VACATIONING IN TEXAS OR ARKANSAS

I DONT LIVE IN THOSE STATE AND DONT CARE TO VISIT THEM SO WHY WOULD I WANT THAT CHANNEL

I WENT TO THIS MESAGE BOARD AREA HOPEING TO FIND SOMEWHERE CUSTOMERS COULD VOICE THEIR OPINION ABOUT THE CHANNELS THEY WANT

HOW ABOUT PROVIDING US WITH SOME PLACE WE CAN DO THAT

I wish someone had the time to compile the list of channels (HD and SD) added to U-Verse that are not shopping or informercial channels in the last three years since you became a U-Verse subscriber. I am sure the number is a lot higher than what anyone thinks it is.

 

Maybe there is a U-Verse employee that can supply the list with the name and date the channel was added.

 

Your argument has no basis. There is nothing that you or anyone else on this forum can do that will bring subchannels to U-Verse any sooner. U-Verse is aware that subscribers would like to have them.

 

I HOPE THAT YOU CAN STOP SHOUTING IN YOUR POSTS. IT IS VERY IRRITATING TO MOST PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: HOW CAN WE GET NEW CHANNELS

2013, including the numerous PAC-12 and BeIN sports channels, there were about 77 added that was not an app or a shopping channel.

 

Remember the Disney JR and BeIN sports drama?

Longhorn Network, the Laker Channel, Fox Sports 2, beIn Sports. How about some more contributions to show this guy how wrong he is.

 

My feeling is that he posted just to get a reaction from the forum, and he has succeeded in doing that.
