Puck-er up? U-verse NHL Fans Can’t

I don’t like to take shots at my TV provider … again … but I am forced to ….again.

That’s because U-verse lost its deal to carry NHL Network Friday, just days before the puck is set to drop on another season.

Jarome Iginla

“We have tried to reach a fair, long-term deal with NHL Network in order to continue delivering this channel to U-verse TV U450 and Sports Tier customers,” AT&T said in a statement issued about 11 p.m. Friday ( Sept. 30). “Unfortunately, it appears that as of midnight EST NHL Network will no longer be available on U-verse TV …”


Fair or not, U-verse has to take some kind of hit here.


Why not?

Seriously, if ALL other providers have deals with NHL Network, why doesn’t U-verse?

This is the second ‘hit’ I have taken in the sports department from U-verse in the past two months as the company stopped offering ESPN 3D recently.

Sometimes AT&T, you have to make a deal that hurts a little in order not to inflict pain on your customers.

Three strikes U-verse … and maybe I’M out!

hopefully for your sister she lives near you to come over and watch games! there are still several outlets to watch the NHL and I have a program……that provides all the games anyway on the computer, so I’ll be covered….except for missing some hockey in HD.

The takedown of the NHL Network is definitely affecting a lot of people. My sister has U-Verse and we are both huge hockey fans. I am a DISH Network customer and employee, so while she has lost NHL Network right as the season is beginning, I will be sitting here at home watching all the games. I may even get NHL Center Ice as well, just for more games! This takedown has definitely affected you, I can tell.
