NHL Network Likely to be Removed From U-verse TV Channel Lineup Tonight

Sep 30, 2011, 22:04 ET from AT&T Inc.

DALLAS, Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* issued the following statement to update its customers that NHL Network could be removed from the AT&T U-verse® TV lineup tonight:

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. Unfortunately, it appears that as of midnight EST, Oct. 1, NHL Network will no longer be available on U-verse TV because we will no longer have an acceptable agreement to carry the channel. We are always open to considering a fair and detailed proposal from NHL Network.

U-verse TV customers can continue to watch their home team and other teams play on NBC, Versus or on their area's local regional sports network. These networks are delivering over 100 games this season, which is more televised live NHL hockey games than ever before.
