I'm still trying to figure out what this means? Does U-Verse go away? If not, is U-Verse going to be allowed to carry the NFL package? I always hated that exclusive contract they have with DirecTV.

U-Verse is now in our area competing with Time Warner. I hadn't really looked at them much because when is AT&T ever the most cost effective solution? But depending on how they can use things like DirecTV's NFL deal and how their high def charges stack up against Time Warner, I may have to do so in future.
