Loss of channels

Loss of channels

AT&T has failed to properly prepare for the  anticipated end of contract negotiation with Nexstar - resulting in the loss of ABC station, a MAJOR network. This continues to happen, as in the past, when other channels were removed from the lineup - as your customers continue to pay increased costs in service. We set up another TV(purchased an antennae) that would give us this basic channel for the interim - assuming we will get the channel back at some time in the future!  I think it's time to contact other providers who can provide continuing service that we PAY for and don't get with AT&T.

Re: Nexstar settles with AT

And what happens when the base charge for each channel is $10 each? The $109 you might pay now for 370+ channels will become 10 channels and you'll be complaining about how much better it was in the old days when you got hundreds of channels for the same price.

Re: Nexstar settles with AT

I would take 10 good channels any day in place of the CRAP they give us now. For the price I pay I get to watch shows that are 50 years old. Who cares if they give you 300 or 400 channels ( most are Hispanic and music) I have a radio if I want to hear music and I am not Hispanic.  All I ask is for my local channels NBC, CBS, ABC, to name a few. Antennas do me no good as I have bought the best only to have to return them because I live in the country.  I want what I was promised when I signed up for this,  the price keeps going up and I keep getting less.  So YES 10 good channels would be welcomed any day.

Not necessarily, when 300 of them are home shopping channels.

I only watch sports and news. That option would be fine with me. You
don't have to have it or like it -- that's your choice.
