Why bother contacting you for a referral, when I can simply contact AT&T directly at 1-800-288-2020, or stop by one of their stores around town? You sound like a fishy agent to me!

I just changed from TW to ATT Dish Network and I love the Dish. I have 2 HD DVR dual tuner boxes for 4 rooms and it is awesome. I can record from any room in the house and watch my favorite programs anytime. Almost every channel has an HD partner. I have Sirius stations. The NFL network in HD. Best of all is the signal and clarity of the channels especially the HD Channels. The price is no where near what I was paying for TW with only one 1 HD DVR receiver and the other rooms had basic. And the clarity and signal sucked even after they came to install a signal amplifier. They wanted to lower the price on me if I stayed with them which would have been nice but only for 6 months. ATT guaranteed their price for 2 years. We shall see what happens after 2 years but I am very satisfied with ATT Dish network right now.

The only sore spot to dumping Time Warner (I can't believe I wrote that) is losing the Metro Sports channel. That's a Time Warner exclusive channel that's not available on Dish, DirecTV, or U-Verse. Some Miner games are shown on that channel.

Speaking of which, does any one know if CBS College Sports (formerly CSTV) is available on U-Verse? It doesn't appear to be one of the channels available, based on what I found on the U-Verse web site. I would definitely not want to lose that channel for all the college games that are shown.

Lastly, Time Warner has quietly added MGM HD and CW HD within the past month. However, Time Warner is still lacking HD channels for Spike, USA, Sci-Fi, TBS, A&E, Biography, just to name a handful.

Oh yeah, they did add MLB Network on New Year's Day, mainly because Time Warner owns part of the network itself. However, we still don't have the NFL Network!

This is also convenient as you will not have to wait on hold or navagate through automated reponses or fight traffic, just wait for an agent to contact you!

Not a fishy agent just wants to beat me to the punch. We get credit for referrals. You can call directly and use the referral code of someone you know from AT&T or not give one at all.

You guys stop it with the referrals. I know we all could use money, but to be sneaky about it come on. lol

Every customer with AT&T can get into the referral program. What these guys are doing is taking your info and giving it to AT&T so that they can get $$$. Right now U-verse sign-ups will give the person referring $100. So you can see why they want to refer you.

By the way att.referrals at sbcglobal.net is somebody's personal email and not an actual AT&T rep email.

Not sure where you got your $100 story from but we don't get that amount. I wasn't attempting to be sneaky, it was an easy way to get referrals and "Agent" thought he or she would jump on the bandwagon. either way thanks for all the info because this generates revenue and saves my job.
