Request for new channel

DISH has just added BlazeTV to their 250 tier. I would like to see AT&T add it to their 200 or 300 tier selections. We need added diversity of political opinion and news from which to choose.

AT&T it is time to add

The Blaze

channel to UVerse.  If you want to charge a premium that is fine, just give us access.

Making your text large, bolded, and in color won't do anything to move things foward. Use the link at the beginning of this thread to request the channel. AT&T can only add the channel if Glenn Beck's company is willing to come to the negoating table with a reasonable offer.

 

EDIT:Now I see where all of the Blaze buisnes is coming from.

Re: The Blaze TV instead of CNN or Headline News

This thread cracks me up everytime I get an e-mail notice that someone has posted.

People aren't even making requests. They are posting telling AT&T what it's time for and making it seem like carrying Glenn Beck's whining, crying and pontificating is obligatory. Smiley LOL

The website linked to above has numbers for each company and a way to e-mail those companies to demand your Beck. That's probably a better method to use then posting here.

AT&T wont offer The Blaze because they are supporters of Obama, that is why I am going to change my service, he says jump and they say how high.

Yeah...AT&T is most certainly a liberal company. After all, they're the same ones that moved Fox News Channel UP to U-200 (gasp!) but moved Fox Business Channel down from U-300 to U-200.

It has nothing to do with politics, it's all about the $$$

Let's see....instead of having at least the option to take The Blaze we will have the option to take Current TV or aka Al Jazeera.  We would rather have a Middle East company than an American company on AT&T?  Way to go AT&T! Way to go!

We dropped the Current TV channel, and will not carry Al Jazeera America, on U-verse due to contract disputes. We could not reach an agreement with the owner that we believe provided value for our customers and our business.

Re: Request for new channel

You believe Current TV added value?  That is fine to think and I think all views should be broadcast but has there been any attempts to make an agreement with TheBlaze?

With AT&T refusing to carry Al Jazeera America, I'm having my doubts about your first statement.  I hope not, though.
