CBS Goes Dark On AT&T U-Verse Customers

AT&T U-Verse Customers

A recent television contract dispute between AT&T and Raycom Media has resulted in the blackout of CBS on AT&T U-Verse in Charleston. This means that AT&T U-Verse customers in this region will miss some of the most crucial matches of the college basketball games this month.

Tensions between both parties started when the officials from Raycom Media made a statement that they are pulling their stations from AT&T U-Verse in Charleston. The timing of the blackout created frustrations among many AT&T U-Verse customers because it took place just a few hours before the first tip-off of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament on the CBS.

WCSC-TV, which is owned by Raycom Media, is the local affiliate for the Tiffany Network. In a written message, the officials from Raycom Media said that the “inconvenience to viewers is part of a broader business strategy to convert AT&T U-Verse customers to DirecTV because a DirecTV subscription is more profitable” for AT&T, which owns both services.

Reports indicate that the dispute between both the parties happened when the Dallas-based telecommunications giant, AT&T was asked to pay a new “retransmission” fee in order to secure the rights for carrying the programs offered by Raycom Media.

Blackout Of CBS

The officials from AT&T blamed the broadcaster for the blackout of the channels. They also added that Raycom is looking for “a significant increase” in the retransmission fee and they are “deliberately preventing WCSC” from being delivered or brought to their U-Verse customers. “We have asked Raycom repeatedly to allow our customers to watch while we work this business matter out privately, but Raycom continues to refuse,” officials from AT&T said.

CBS Network was scheduled to bring the broadcast of four basketball games as a part of their March Madness coverage. However, AT&T U-Verse customers in Charleston missed the coverage of these games because both the parties failed to reach a settlement on the retransmission fee issue.

You can catch the live broadcast of the college basket basketball games online, but you will need to subscribe to any one of the best internet service in the country for that. Many internet providers including AT&T offer high-speed internet service to their customers that allow them to watch these games online without any delays or disturbances.

In addition to that, those users who lease modems from Comcast will also be able to get upgraded modems from Comcast free of charge. Those users who have their own modems and need to upgrade modems to have access to the increased internet speeds will have to buy a new one for them or may lease a new one from Comcast Corporation.

The New Unlimited Plan From AT&T Eliminates TV Requirement

AT&T Unlimited Plan

One of the major drawbacks of AT&T’s former unlimited plan was that customers were forced to subscribe to a TV subscription and this drew off many customers from choosing the unlimited offering from AT&T. However, in a recent announcement, AT&T confirmed that they are planning to re-offer their unlimited data plan to their subscribers without requiring them to have a U-Verse or DirecTV packages.

Reports from several reliable sources indicate that the new offering from AT&T will be available to their customers in a few days. AT&T is one of the leading telephone and internet providers in the country, and it seems that they are planning to match their unlimited plan to that of Verizon, which offers four lines to their customers for just $180 without the need to subscribe to a television service.

Nevertheless, a single line offering of AT&T is a bit more expensive when compared to that of Verizon and it is available to the subscribers for $100. AT&T is charging $40 each for the second and third line. This means that the telecom giant is not charging the customers for the fourth line.

Just like Verizon, AT&T will also be slowing down customers when they are in “congested” or busy regions, if the customers have already crossed the 22 GB mark in a month. Reports indicate that customers who do not exceed 22 GB in a month will not be have to worry about AT&T’s this policy.

The new unlimited offer provided by AT&T will also include HD video. However, AT&T has confirmed that they will not allow their customers to use their smartphone as a mobile hot spot. The unlimited plan offered by some of the internet providers such as Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon does offer 10 GB of mobile hot spot data.

In addition to that, AT&T customers who travel to Mexico and Canada will be able to add a “Roam North America” feature, which enables them to use their unlimited plan in both of the countries at zero additional charges. This means that AT&T customers will be able to enjoy unlimited calling, texting, and internet services while they are in these countries.

AT&T also added that their non-TV customers who stick with the oldest unlimited data offering would not be affected by this latest announcement. Reports indicate that this latest offering from AT&T is the best internet service, and will attract more customers to their offerings.
