Programming notices for March

Notice Appearing in USA Today on March 21, 2017

AT&T's agreements with programmers expire from time to time. We are usually able to obtain renewals or extensions of such agreements, but in rare cases we may be required to cease carriage of channels. For more information on upcoming expirations or other programming changes see below or visit att.com/fightingforyou. Below we list the prior three notices that also appeared in USA Today.

 

March 2017:

As previously noticed, AT&T's contract with the programmer for the following channels is set to expire. While these channels will continue to be available to U-verse members so long as AT&T has the rights to carry them, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached with the programmer the programming will no longer be available. AT&T may modify the channel location for the programming by moving them from their current channel location to a channel between 9501 – 9599, and if a reasonable longer term agreement cannot be reached with the programmers, we may lose the rights to carry them (listed in alphabetical order) in or after March 2017: Vme (channel 3015) and Vme Kids (channel 3058). .

Does not bode well for my beloved U-Verse service. Is it just a matter of time before we are all assimilated into the DirectTV collective?  Resistance is futile....

If they take away my terrestrial IP delivery, they're asking me to leave.  Don't want to deal with a dish.

Unfortunately, unless AT&T changed its policy concerning subchannels, it won't be on U-Verse.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the CW programs will air on KFMB subchannel 8.3 - and if I remember correctly, AT&T does not make exceptions to its "no subchannel" rule for CW programs; only for the "big four" (NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox).

See http://programmingchanges.att.com/ .  Select your state and you will see text similar to the OP, including the Uverse.com notice.

IF ATT is not going to carry BEINSP there is no need for me to pay for the high dollar package and may be time it switch to a carrier that does carry BEINSP. Get rid of my ATT phones and Internet also.
