U-verse service - DirecTV

A Direct tv sales man come to my door a few minutes ago stating that att is getting rid of U-verse service and that I needed to switch to Direct Tv.When I asked why?He said that U-verse service is not working great and that was the reason for the switch. If this is true why haven't we been notified of the future change, because I refuse to get a dish. They has made me look for other company options.

This question, "U-verse service," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
