The AT&T U-Verse party is over

At least it is for me.

I never got any notification and I can't find anything about this on google (just brief Epix, HBO, Cinemax, Starz promos), but since March or early April, I have had some extra channels on my U-Verse service. They disappeared on June 20th. I assume it was a pandemic thing, but like I said, I could never find anything that mentioned it.

Anyway, I have U200 and the extra channels were the non-movie channels which were included in U300. Some are: Smithsonian, Sony, MGM and HD Movie. I loved having the Smithsonian channel and always wished I could get it without having to upgrade packages.

I would have assumed it was a pandemic-related free upgrade to U300, except U300 includes all the non-HBO movie channels (Showtime, Starz, etc.) that I didn't get.

Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

Hmmm, they were really pushing AT&T Now, but I'm gonna pass when I have dedicated hardware for TV (i.e. U-Verse). Also, AT&T Now has a really good promo price for a year but then the regular price blows.

And there it is right there in black and white. Thanks. I could never find any email or other announcement. If I did actually get it, I was probably in the hospital about the time it came out so lots of things got pushed aside.

Anyway, thanks again. I was hoping it was permanent rather a pandemic special but now I know.
