I subscribe to AT&T U-verse cable TV. Since I reside in Connecticut I have local access to Connecticut local stations along with the majority of New York City local stations. The only two New York City local stations that I cannot receive are WABC channel 7 out of NYC and WWOR channel 9 out of NYC. Although I am in the Hartford-New Haven market area, I am still allowed to received all NYC local channels with the exception of WABC and WWOR. When I tune into either one of these two channels which are channel 17 or 1017 and channel 19 or 1019 on the AT&T U-Verse cable channel lineup, I get a message stating that these two channels are not available in my area. Yet when I go to the AT&T cable TV website under my zip code 06779, it states that these two channels are available in my area. Can someone please tell me why these two channels are blocked out and the reason for it? What can I do to get these two channels or who can I contact to request that these two channels be available to the CT Hartford-New Haven market area? Is it AT&T not wanting to offer these channels or is it WABC and WWOR not wanting to offer their signal to this area or is it an FCC restriction that these two channels cannot be available in my area? Please explain. Thank you.
