WWME and 2 other channels gone?

I am so frustrated with AT&T! My favorite old tv channels are gone? I recieved no warning! I'm old so I like my old shows and I am really sad they are gone. Am I the only one?

Effective June 25 we will be removing the following channels WWME-28 (IND) channel 23 and WMEU-48 (IND) channel 48 from portions of the Chicago market.

Try contacting Alex, one of the AT&T Community Managers.  He can pass along your frustartion to the proper workgroups at AT&T.  I believe that these channels should be available over the air but I do see that WWME is a "CA" station and 48 is a "CD" station.  These C class stations are lower powered but with a decent indoor antenna, I bet that you can get them.

 

Those two are owned by the same group - so maybe it is a contract dispute?  Then it's a two way street, it could be that Weigel forced them off of U-Verse?

It's disappointing that we have lost these channels.  These are all I watch! 

 

Doesn't surprise me.  AT&T is only concerned about money.... Not it's customers!

I am also upset that these channels are missing.  I watch them everyday.  I don't want to do this, but I will have to go over to Comcast if this is going to be permanent.

This is a load of garbage!!!!! I switched from Comcast to Uverse and may have to go back when my year is up. Had WWME and it's sister channels there.

 

I believe these channels are available on free tv in the Chicago area, why aren't they for pay?

Re: WWME and 2 other channels gone?

The noitce above is interesting:

 

Effective June 25 we will be removing the following channels WWME-28 (IND) channel 23 and WMEU-48 (IND) channel 48 from portions of the Chicago market.

 

So it appears that not all of the Chicago market is effected by the change.

Re: WWME and 2 other channels gone?

I totally agree with you!  I just got home and did my daily ritual to find out that the channels are gone!  I'm soooo mad.  And now my 3 stooges that i've been watching forever on saturday nights are gone along with  Svengoolie.  I grew up with this, I'm so mad, its bad their service sux and freezes up on me and been dealing with these types of issues for a couple of years now.  Like they say...they care about MONEY not their customers...I'm not happy with what I pay and I'm really thinking about switching and I wouldn't recommend at&t to anyone I know.

I just checked with a friend that has Comcast. They still have all the WWME channels.

 

Uverse didn't even send out a notice they were pulling these channels.

I received no such message/notice. The only way I confirmed it was gone and not something wrong with my service was to find mention of it here.

 

They told me I'd get Wireless N router while it doesn't exist, tried to get me to pay an activation fee when I was told I wouldn't  be charged one, installer said my outside equipment needed to be upgraded but nobody would do it, I got AM radio over my telephones, sometimes my tv goes blank and I need to unplug the box and now they are taking away a very popular tv channel and it's related channels.

 

Why am I using Uverse?

Re: WWME and 2 other channels gone?

Is AT&T serious!!???  For the Chicago market; it is simply unfathomable not to have WWME and its sister station!!!  If the all mighty dollar is all that is need to bring them back; then just have AT&T write a check and pay the stations!!!! I am not happy about this and when the rest of Chicago finds out about this AT&T's facebook, twitter and all other social media blogs are gonna explode with talk!!!

WWME

I'm very upset because I sat down and turned the metv to watch Perry Mason and I don't have it anymore.  That was part of my (me time) before I went to bed.
