Paying extra for a TV channel NASA offers for free

August 06, 2013|By David Lazarus

Charles used to work at NASA and wants to stay in touch with the space program via NASA TV, the cable channel paid for by tax dollars and provided free to telecom companies.

Turns out, though, that his AT&T U-verse package doesn't include NASA TV. To receive the channel, he was told, he'd have to pay for a more expensive programming package.

Charles' question: Why should NASA TV be considered a premium channel considering that taxpayers have already paid for it?

To get an answer to this one, I had to reach out and touch AT&T. To find out what they had to say, check out today's Ask Laz video.
