Re: Losing Stations? Think of ways to provide more, not less.

@mhorvath   Well, looks like you'll be cancelling very soon.  The yearly increases are coming out on all bills starting 1/28/16.  Most TV packages are rising $3 (can you say Hallmark?) and 1 Uvoice plan is rising.

 

ATT gives a yearly Thanksgiving free u450 preview to all users. Now thru 1/8 there is a free HD (in your package) preview w/premium HD tier too.

 

During the year we get Epix, Showtime, HBO previews too.

 

From Fighing for You

 

We intend to keep KOTV and KQCW in your U-verse line-up but the stations’ owner Griffin Communications is threatening to block KOTV and KQCW from reaching your home unless they receive a significant increase in their current fees – just to let you keep watching shows that remain available for free over-the-air on channel 6 and channel 19 and often online at cbs.com and cwtv.com. Our goal is to resolve this matter quickly, privately and reasonably.

 

You can call your local channels and implore them to reasonably settle this logjam. 😉

AT&T contract with News9

I beg you to continue News9 and CBS programming.  This is one of the best channels which we have the opportunity to watch.

Mrs. Viva ****

Please do not take away our CBS evening viewing.  We are a 3 sometimes 4 TV household. 

I know other members watch Y&R and B&B.  Age preferences difference runs from 78 down to 41 years.

Over 40 years we have been faithful viewers of Channel 9 for news, sports, and weather.

Taking it away would be very disconcerting for my husband and I.

Thank you

News on 6 and the CW

Please keep KOTV Channel 6 and the CW. Many of my favorite shows are on these channels, and it would be a shame to lose these. We changed from COX to ATT UVerse thinking we wouldn't have these issues...I hope I am not wrong. So please come to an amicable agreement during these negotiations and make your customers happy.

 

Sincerely,

News 9 tv station

this is very unfortunate that you are deciding to discontinue carrying news9.  This is my favorite local news station plus many other programs.  What is the reason you have made this decision?

You are directing your plea to the wrong party. You and all of your friends need to call Channel 9 and demand that they tell the owners of the channel, Griffin Communications, to give AT&T a fair price to sign a new contract instead of the outrageous price they (Griffin Communications) are asking. Tell them you do not want to lose Channel 9 due to Griffin Communication's greed.

You are talking to wrong party in this contract dispute. AT&T has NOT decided to discontinue carrying news9.. The blame is with channel 9's owner, Griffin Communications, who is asking for an outrageous fee from AT&T in order for AT&T to continue carrying the channel. You will be losing Channel 9 due to Griffin Communications's greed. You and all of your friends need to call Channel 9, and let them know you will not stand for Griffin Communications to be so greedy.

Attention, Miley. You need to address your concerns with Griffin Communications, the owner of Channel 6. Due to their greed by asking for an outrageous fee from AT&T in order for AT&T to continue carrying the channel, you may lose that channel. You and all of your friends need to call Channel 6, and let them know you will not stand for Griffin Communications's greed.

CBS

I'm just curious as to whether or not AT&T knows how many beyond extremely upset subscribers they will have if they are unable to negotiate a deal with CBS? Not even worrying about any of the other programs that will be interrupted, just think about this one: Super Bowl 50. Not everyone wants to have to go somewhere outside of their own home to be able to watch the game. If only for that one program, alone, it's almost guaranteed that U-Verse will lose a large number of subscribers, along with a lot of money, if a deal is not reached. It's also pretty obvious that any deal reached will cost a lot less than the amount that would be lost through the very large amount of account cancellations that can be expected, were this to play out.

KEEP NEWSON6 IN TULSA AREA

Dear AT&T,

 

This is the primary channel that I watch on UVERSE.   They have the best weather reporting which is important since I commute a long distance each working day.   They have the best local programming.   The quality of most channels on UVERSE is very poor.   This channel is very good.    Do not drop them!

 

Sincerely,

 

Ray
