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

And we have the right to cancel your service! I pay a lot for your service so do not tell us about cost. You can get rid of the other worthless channels and keep the ones people actually want and would pay for.

NFL Network

Where is the channel!?! Though I have been a customer for many years paying way too much for your services, I stayed because of NFL. Now that it is gone, I'm out.

Re: NFL Network

It's been gone since mid-April.  A thread was started back then.

Stayed because of NFL, yet only noticed it now.

Re: NFL Network

Hi, Lena. We understand your frustration. The NFL Network and Red Zone remain available to all fans on DIRECTV. However, as we continue to manage content costs, we could not reach an agreement with the NFL to continue to carry these channels on U-verse and DIRECTV NOW.

Re: NFL Network

Still zero movement on the NFL network. Their have never been any negotiations between the 2 sides and it appears that’s still the case. It looks like my 11 year run with U-Verse will be ending very soon. I’ll probably move my cell service as well in hopes of securing the best new deal possible. Looks like Spectrum right now.

Re: NFL Network

This August my agreement is up with uverse, and I’m currently looking for replacement options. I’m not paying a cable bill and can not enjoy the nfl network. I should of been told this when I ordered at&t. Thinking about going internet only and get a streaming service

Re: NFL Network

Please do whatever it takes to get NFL Network back on Uverse! All other providers, including other ATT TV outlets offer this channel. Why?

Re: NFL Network

I said that I would give it shot without it, however I am quickly loosing my patience! I’m afraid by August, I will need to do something to get the NFL channel back!

Re: NFL Network

So how do we get an ATT U-verse final response on if they are currently attempting to negotiate a return of the NFL Network back onto U-verse or they are beyond further attempts?

Re: NFL Network

Odd that it’s still accessible through the app.

Re: NFL Network

Always understand how these mega corporations operate. AT&T is not negotiating to restore anything. Right now they are scheming to take away more channels. They are figuring out how many more jobs they can eliminate, and which ones. The ongoing goal is higher profit, to be funneled to the CEO and major executives of the company.

 

Nothing else matters. Too many people who have never worked behind the scenes of corporate America and haven't heard ownership laugh about all the tax breaks they are going to receive, and how many screw jobs they are going to aim at certain customers, continue to believe that these companies care about anything other than the bottom line. If AT&T could offer a test pattern on every channel for the same rate they would do it tomorrow and be laughing like those Enron guys.
