    "NBC Universal said it has reached a long-term agreement with AT&T to carry its portfolio of networks across all AT&T and DirecTV products, including new streaming services DirecTV Now and DirecTV Preview."

    "Through the agreement, AT&T DirecTV and U-Verse customers will continue to have access to NBC Universal broadcast and cable networks live and on-demand through linear TV, online, and TV Everywhere apps."

    "The agreement also enhances DirecTV’s 4K UHD programming initiative, by allowing DirecTV to select major sporting events in 4K. DirecTV has already offered Rio Olympics and is delivering Notre Dame football games in 4K UHD under the agreement."

    Thank you, mws192!

    I hope you don't mind…I mentioned and linked this thread in the "HD Anticipation" thread for what we may want to look for: Esquire Network, Oxygen, and Sprout getting upgraded to HD.
