NFL Network & RedZone are gone

NFL Network & RedZone are gone

Can anyone, preferably from AT&T, tell me if NFL Network & RedZone are no longer being carried on U-verse? At 4:15pm today I tried to go to channels 1629 & 1630, but what I saw was a message saying “This channel is no longer carried” and there was a reference to TVpromise.org. First time I’ve ever seen that message. To me, that isn’t just that the NFL Network is offline with broadcast issues. It’s that U-verse has dropped those two channels. Anyone else have this issue or heard anything about it?

Re: NFL Network

Obviously I should have mentioned that YouTube TV does not have NFL Network. Some people use Playstation for football season then switch to YouTube for the remaining 8 months of the year. My neighbor does that. 

 

There has been some talk of YouTube adding NFL Network but it hasn't happened yet

Re: NFL Network

I'm not holding my breath,this makes no mention of us Uverse customers. My guess is that it is gone, unfortunately.

Re: NFL Network

I really hope this means ATT stops withholding NFL Network and Red-Zone from Uverse customers. At this point, it would almost seem intentional on ATT behalf to try and force people into getting a Dish which is just not good business

Re: NFL Network

From info I’ve read I don’t see this happening. AT&T purchased Direct TV because, I believe, with exclusive rights to Sunday ticket. NFL is trying to come up with a way to make more games accessible to the fans and not allow AT&T have exclusive rights to Sunday ticket any longer. Once contract is up with Direct TV, they want to offer it to other services (if they haven’t already). Personally, I’ve wanted this for years.  I believe that since the NFL is doing this that it ticked AT&T off and they decided not to renegotiate a deal regardless of their customers. After all, the only good thing about Direct TV was Sunday Ticket. This was a huge purchase that is going to cost them a loss. Customers are not their priority, only bottom dollar is. I’ve read AT&T is going to stop offering discounts to renewing customers, but I’m not sure if applies to cable and/or Direct TV. Unless AT&T gets over it then it is definitely not coming back. I’m searching other options including Amazon Prime or just firestick in general (which I have both). Best advice if it matters to you please find another avenue.

Re: NFL Network

I'm paying for the package that have NFL network , redzone and all the local stations. I would expect a refund for the days that I don't have these channels.  At&t won't give us free channels so why should we pay for channels we can't view? I'm getting very frustrated with at&t!!!

Because you're not paying extra for specific channels. You're paying for TV service with a package of channels which is all AT&T is required to provide.

Re: NFL Network

correct, but each package of channels cost more as you select more
channels. The basic package doesn't include the NFL network and the red
zone. so If we select the package with these channels we're paying more for
them and we can't view them.

Re: NFL Network

Re: NFL Network

You could of purchased Redzone separately for around $7.00 a month if you didn’t want to upgrade to package with movie channels.

Then switch to a cheaper package.
