For Those Of You That Have TV Service From DirecTV - Check This Out.....

I've been a big advocate here on DU to put the message out to all cableTV and streaming TV services and outlets - to during this time of 'self-isolating' at home and with schools being closed - that it would be a very good gesture on their part to open up more programming for all their current customers. I noted that some customers have just a basic package and they don't get news channels or children's programming.

I just visited the DirecTV site to see if they had any Covid-19 messages for us. Aside from limiting the hours at their AT&T stores and providing some free premium channel previews in the upcoming weeks - they posted this:

Additional free content for our DIRECTV and U-verse customers during this time:

More News & Entertainment: We’re adding the following channels to DIRECTV and U-verse packages (for customers that do not currently have this programming) to keep customers entertained and informed:

News: BBC World News , CNBC, CNN, CNN International, Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, One America News Network

Entertainment: American Heroes, Aspire, AWE, AXS TV, Comedy.TV, Cooking Channel, Crime & Investigation, Destination America, Discovery Life, DIY Network, Eleven Sports, FM, Fuse, FX Movie Channel, fyi, Great American Country, GSN, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, HDNET MOVIES, IFC, Justice Central, LMN, MGM HD, MTV Live, Nat Geo WILD, OWN, Oxygen, Science Channel, ShortsTV, Smithsonian Channel, Sony Movie Channel, SundanceTV, The Weather Channel, Travel Channel, TV One, UPtv, WGN America

Kids: Discovery Family, Disney Jr., Disney XD, Nick Jr., Universal Kids

I want to thank the powers that be at DirecTV for doing this in this time of great stress for the country. This is a sure gesture that is really appreciated. Doing this will go a long way in keeping the public informed of all the latest developments of this crisis and will also provide some comfort for kids that are home from school - to keep them occupied - and relief of stress for parents knowing that they have another means for providing their kids with relieving their boredom of having to be confined to their home.

Please check this out if you currently have DirecTV and spread this message to your family and friends.

3. AT&T is in deep

financial trouble and they are pumping every sales idea in order to avoid another Bankruptcy. This is not their first Rodeo of loading the company up with debt only to do a BK and restart the same crap game again.
