ATT Uverse loses HGTV, DIY, and other channels

Looks like no more HGTV, DIY, Cooking Channel, Food Network, or Great American Country for uverse customers.

AT&T U-VERSE TV CUSTOMERS DENIED FAIR DEAL BY SCRIPPS NETWORKS


AT&T U-verse TV customers have been denied a fair deal for HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, Cooking Channel and GAC programming by Scripps Networks, leaving AT&T without the rights to deliver these channels as of 1:00 a.m. EDT. AT&T* issued the following statement to update its customers:

We’re extremely disappointed that Scripps Networks won’t provide a fair deal for AT&T customers. Our team has been working for weeks to reach a fair agreement, but Scripps Networks ultimately refused to put in writing key terms that had been agreed upon verbally, leaving our customers without a fair deal as our extended contract expired.

Unfortunately, this is yet another example of a network punishing its own viewers for leverage in programming negotiations. Scripps Networks is demanding that AT&T pay double what other competitors pay — including smaller-sized affiliates — and has yet to provide a proposal that gives AT&T a choice in the channels we carry and pay for, despite repeated requests.

Scripps Networks also wants this premium price for inferior access to their content for our customers on other platforms, even though other competitors get this at much lower prices. With such an uneven playing field, they are harming AT&T’s ability to provide customers with a new video choice.

We will continue to fight for a fair deal to bring these channels back to our lineup because our customers deserve the programming they want, at a fair price.

In the place of HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, Cooking Channel and GAC during this time, AT&T U-verse customers can enjoy a free preview of the popular programming from TLC on channels 450/1450, Bravo on channels 452/1452, Planet Green on channels 454/1454, ION Life on channel 456/1456 and CMT Pure Country on channel 529.

U-verse TV customers can get more information at att.com/fighting4you.

*sigh*

Dish Network nearly lost all FOX channels but those two finally had a few Christian side hugs over the weekend, before the Nov 1st deadline.

But damn, if we lost HGTV, my gal would FLIP OUT and have us switched over to something else in 5 minutes flat!

We used to watch those channels often, but not as much anymore.... We are still unhappy that they were dropped though.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

If it was up to me I wouldn't have cable. The wife on the other hand would not approve. I would miss ESPN though.
