DirecTV users - update 12/4

Received some info from iNDemand: (iNDemand is the third party that we send the content to & they deliver to all of the separate DirecTV stations)

“Our team is still working diligently to create and test the new distribution requirements with DirecTV. I can assure you that it is at the top of our IT team’s list and we all would like to get back to the usual flow of AN content on DirecTV as soon as possible! It seems like many of these issues listed are problems with their site’s functionality. I will reach out to them to see if they’ve made any changes on their end that may affect this. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.”

@Slowhand

So unfortunately I don’t have power right now. So I can’t give a proper report this week. But last time I checked nothing had changed from my last post. And none of 12/7 had been received. When I can, I’ll make a proper report.

You have my thanks :snake:

Welp. Been out of town for a couple of weeks, and it seems like not much has changed in the fuster cluck that TAN on DTV has devolved into over the last few months.

Here’s what I see on the channel right now (note - seeing the channel at all could be seen by some as progress):

Action Zone (3 programs total):
Fate/Stay Night, ep. 2, 5, 6

Girl Power (2 programs total):
Prima Doll, ep. 11
Shinepost, ep. 7

Super Happy Fun Time (13 programs total):
Amagi Brilliant Park, ep. 7
Bib. Princess, ep. 4
Food Wars, ep. 1, 8
Golden Time, ep. 10
Hakumei and Mikochi, ep, 7
Girls in a Dungeon, ep. 13
Kill Me Baby, ep. 13
K-On, ep. 12
Princess Res., ep. 3
Embodiment of Shadow, ep. 2

Cue the Scott Van Pelt sound byte:

“Not Very Good!”

Still.

Just a gentle reminder that the last successful receipt of a week’s TAN programming by DTV customers was for the week of SEPTEMBER 28, 2023.

For reference, I am writing this on DECEMBER 13, 2023.

We are roughly two weeks from effectively being without TAN service for a COMPLETE CALENDAR QUARTER.

This ain’t funny…

And also for reference, this isn’t a TAN problem, it’s DirecTV’s. They did that update and now are having a lot of problems. Be sure to give them a call and let them know how you feel.

Understood, but I respectfully disagree - this most certainly IS TAN’s problem - your services are not reaching your intended customers - us. .

Having said that, thanks for the reminder that it’s time to check back in on the DTV end. Back on November 8 I added a “me too” post to @Whaler58’s DTV forum post from October 31, rather than posting a separate issue. I got no direct response, Looking today, the last post on that thread is dated Nov. 16 from someone with the handle @DirecTVhelp, saying “@gwhelan, we’re helping you on Direct Message. Please be sure to meet us there to provide you with further assistance. Jhoan, DIRECTV Community Specialist”.
Since the conversation appears to have been taken to DM, I suppose we’ll have to ask @Whaler58 for an update. In addition, I’ll go ahead and open a new thread/case/ticket under my name and see what transpires.

I have been out of town, will be back next week, can’t access anime through the app so I have no way of checking the status. Will start inquiring again next week.

Thank you. I’ve been out of town as well the last couple weeks. Pretty discouraging to see so little progress, and with the meat of the holidays coming up, I kinda doubt we’ll see much until after New Years. IT staff have families too…

I just finished a new posting to the DTV forum, referencing your original post. Hopefully it’ll serve as a reminder that we’re waiting on them.
