NBC, WTHR, CBS - September Contract Negotiation

Why was NBC dropped from the channel lineup? This is a major network that I watch frequently. I am not happy about this change and don't remember receiving any notification of this change.

Channel negotiations and sub-channels

I'm guessing that when AT&T negotiates with a channel owner for carriage of a local channel, that a subchannel isn't a priority?

WTHR 13 NBC (Local station in Indianapolis, IN) negotiations with AT&T Uverse

I received this from WTHR 13: DirecTV and AT&T U-verse subscribers - You may not be able to watch WTHR-TV on Friday, September 1, 2017. We are working hard to reach a fair agreement! Have you come to agreement with them yet. There is a lot of stuff (sports, reality shows, news) that I watch on NBC's local network in Indianapolis. This happens every year at this time. Please come to agreement with WTHR.

Dispatch is currently threatening to block WTHR from reaching your home unless they receive a significant increase in fees. We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this matter.

This is ridiculous, UVerse!  We pay a lot of money each month for service that is not great!  Work it out with WTHR!

I'm so over Uverse right now!   We just had Spectrum come in with new cable lines... guess it is time to upgrade to a different company!

 

I cannot believe we can't watch NBC!   Flipping RIDICULOUS !  Why am I paying so much for crap service???

I need CBS!

When will this be back on my Columbus line-up? Fall shows are.about to start and I will need to switch carriers if you can't negotiate successfully with CBS. I got a notice from Spectrum today in fact. Please advise when I can expect to see my shows, and if you do get it back if on-demand will be back-filled with the shows I missed.

CBS 10 TV

This is a local channel not a pay channel. You need to settle this VERY soon. I will change carriers! Would never sign on with a carrier that didn't carry our local networks and as far as i am concerned my contract is no good without the channels I signed on with!

Re: CBS 10 TV

I agree WBNS 10tv needs to back in the Line up, I am very dissatisfied with AT&T for allowing this to happen. If WBNS 10TV is not back in the local Line up soon I will change my carrier.

Can't get NBC

How do I get ATT to give me NBC back??? I don't care what ATT and NBC are doing contract wise; figure it out! This is ridiculous; I pay for a service and I want to use it!

Disappointment

I'm so disappointed that a company as large as att was unable to keep channels 13 (Wthr) and 50 (Walv) in our program line up. It's unfair to just let them disappear. Please get them back.

Re: WTHR 13 NBC (Local station in Indianapolis, IN) negotiations with AT&T Uverse

This is ridiculous, I can't watch the opening night of football!  Antenna is in and out. While you are bickering I hope you get COZI tv on also and keep MeTV on too.  Cable prices are absurd. Comcast  offers looking better even though I dropped them because they suck at customer service. I may change my mind or get an outdoor antenna and just have internet.

Having the same issue in Columbus Ohio with CBS. We haven't had CBS for days and it doesn't seem like anyone cares from Channel 10 or AT&T.
