    AT&T TV Promise | DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW, U-verse, WatchTV

    DirecTV Now is dropping NFL Network for all subscribers, and Nick Jr for grandfathered packages. Subscribers can contact support to keep Nick Jr, but there is no option to keep NFL Network.

    Following the package slicing a few weeks ago, AT&T is showing signs of aggressive cost reduction.

    Gotta pay for all those acquisitions as well as all the wireless expansion they are doing right now somehow.

    The Sunday Ticket deal runs through 2022, but the NFL has an option to exit the deal at the end of the upcoming season. The NFL has been pretty public about looking at new options and new partners. At the very least, we could see the package not remain exclusive to satellite.
