News on 6

AT&T you will not only loose our Universe business but you will also loose our cell phone business if Channel 6 deadlock is not resolved.  We watch channel 6 more than any other channel and we only watch channel 6 news.  AT&T needs to understand there is more than one provider in Tulsa.   Our total montly bill for both services is about $550 which I realize is not a big deal to AT&T.  Several of my friends are going to switch from uverse as well as change their cell phone provider if this deadlock is not resolved.  My wife and I have been loyal customers; however, we will vote with our dollars unless this is resolved before 5 pm. January 6.  I am already searching on line and looking at my options.

Re: News on 6

Actually it's the station owner that's threating to drop U-verse unless they pay more money.   How much more are you willing to pay for a station that's available for free with an over-the-air antenna?

Place the blame where it belongs, the greediness of the owners of Channel 9, Griffin Communications. It is due to their greed that you may lose this channel. Make sure you and all of your friends call Channel 9, to urge that Griffin Communications present a fair deal to AT&T.

Re: crap!

I think the OP is talking about either Channel 9 in Oklahoma City or Channel 6 in Tulsa.

news 9 subscription

I have your service for my TV and we live out in the country so I don't have many options but if you don't keep channel 9 on your line up, I guess I will have to cancel my service with you.  I feel that the news on this channel has kept my family safe with the weather updates and road conditions.  It is bad enough that I live where my phone service is intermittent and I have to pay a bill regardless.  I am completely unhappy with A T & T as it is at this moment as I haven't had a phone in over a week.  Please don't make it worse by making me have to change my TV service.  Thank you very much! Tonya

Keep News Channel 9 KWTV in Oklahoma

I highly stand behind the Channel 9 KWTV station.  It is our main station for news and weather locally here in Oklahoma.

There are many other programs on there that I watch and I would be greatly disappointed if AT&T were to take them off the air.

I think that I would have to change to DISH network if that were to happen.

Please don't take Channel 9 KWTV off your programming.

Thank you.

Channel 9 KWTV does not stand behind you. Their parent company, Griffin Communications, is asking for an outrageous amount of money from AT&T in order for that channel to still be part of the U-verse lineup. I would recommend that you and all of your friends call Channel 9, and demand that Griffin Communications not be so greedy because you wish to still be able to watch Channel 9.

 

You realize that all television providers have contracts with individual local channels, and if you switch to DISH , the same situation will occur with them, too. All contacts come to an end.

CONTINUATION OF CHANNEL 6 KOTV

THIS IS NOT A QUESTION!

 

Please do not cancel service with Channel 6 in Tulsa.  If you decide to do so, I will cancel my subscription with AT&T and take my business elsewhere.

We do not want to lose Channel 9 in Oklahoma. If you can't reach an agreement, we will have to switch to Cox.

You are directing your post to the wrong party in these contract talks. You and all of your friends need to contact Channel 9, and tell them that their owners, Griffin Communications, is demanding too high of a fee from AT&T. It is because of Griffin Communications's greed that you may lose Channel 9.

 

Contracts between television providers and local channels come up all the time with ALL  television providers. You have no assurances or guarantees that this will not happen with Cox. All contracts come to an end.

Keep News9.com Griffin Communications Oklahoma

I am writing to tell you how disappointed I am to hear that you might be dropping local coverage of News9 CBS programming located in Oklahoma. I am an AT &T Uverse customer and I am sorry to say that I will be switching to Cox Communications if you discontinue your coverage of News9. I was previously a Cox customer but switched to AT & T Uverse. I have been a satisfied customer but I depend on News9 to bring me the local news, life saving weather coverage (which is a must during the tornado season) and many of my favorite shows! Please negotiate fairly with News9 and provide many Oklahomans with the coverage they want and NEED!! Thank you for your consideration. 

 

Please feel free to contact me.

Keep News9 in OKC

My family probably only watches 12 stations on Uverse. Of those, over 50% of the time, our televisions are on 1009...News9. Your quality has dropped this past year and you are barely keeping us as customers. If you don't make nice with News9 and end up dropping them, we will be dropping you. Get your head out and realize that keeping your customers happy is the ONLY thing that will allow you to retain subscribers and make a profit. Ignore us and I guarantee the stockholders will make sure someone else has your job next year.

CBS

Why is it that there is a problem with keeping CBS? I changed to ATT because of poor service. I can certainly change again if you drop CBS.
