  3. An HBO blackout in and of itself is notable since it’s never happened before in the network’s more than 40 years. But it could have deeper implications as AT&T plans to fight off a challenge to its Time Warner merger. Over the summer, Judge Richard Leon ruled that AT&T could proceed as planned with its $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, and he placed no conditions on the deal. That decision flew in the face of the U.S. Justice Department’s attempt the block the transaction, a move that garnered support from rival pay TV providers like Dish Network.

DirecTV will continue offering satellite-TV service—it had nearly 20 million satellite video subscribers as of September, per company filings. But the company will focus on growing its online video business instead, Donovan sa
  6. from the innovation! dept While AT&T's marketing wing often likes to pat itself on the back for "innovation," the company's real skill set revolves around finding creative and ways to nickel-and-dime its own customers. Like the multiple times the company was caught aiding drug dealing directory assistance scammers, IP Relay credit card scammers, or crammers because it was getting a cut of the profits. Or the time the company started charging everybody more money for broadband if they wanted to protect their own personal privacy. Or the company's well-documented n
  7. Internal documents obtained by Motherboard show that the company is preparing for layoffs—megamergers, deregulation, and tax breaks aren’t providing the public benefits AT&T promised.

  11. AT&T forecasts subscriber loss as big shareholder says DirecTV buy was a mistake.

The companies announced Wednesday that they’ve joined forces on cross-network call authentication geared at weeding out fraudulent calls and better assuring their customers that a caller is who they say they are, rather than a spoofed number or fraudster
