Fox News Channel On Uverse

Effective June 18, 2012, Fox news channel is no longer part of the u100 package. So for those customers who are subscribed to u100, you need to upgrade your service to u200 so you can get the channels that were part of u100. This may surprise you but that only took effect on the said date. But the news regarding the change was announced way before. 

June 19, 2012

AT&T's contracts with programmers for the content displayed on our U-verse TV service periodically expire, but are usually re-negotiated or extended with no interruption or change for our U-verse members. Contract(s) for the programming listed below are set to expire as indicated, and AT&T is making every effort to reach a fair agreement to continue carriage. However, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached with such programmer(s), we will no longer have the rights to carry their programming on U-verse TV. While the programming listed below will continue to be available to U-verse members so long as AT&T has the rights to carry it, if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached with the programmer the programming will no longer be available at that time.
