Any news about when an AT&T Retired Employee can expect to receive a discount for DIRECTV service?

Try calling this number: 1-888-722-1787 Monday-Friday, 7:00am-5:00pm EST That's the retiree discount information number. They will know before any of us.
It is out, go to the discounts web site and select Direct TV from the top right of the header.
Be prepared to be very dissapointed.
I do not understand why AT&T did not give us a discount like current employees - or even in the same ballpark. I do understand why they delayed the offer from June to September and then again to the first quarter of 2017. They must have wanted to put a lot of time between what the employees and retired employees receive. Upper management should be ashamed of this offer. I do know that some lower managememt employees are. I as a retired employee, probably have a lot more contact with the public than most employees. It sure puts a bad taste in my mouth.

While it certainly isn't great, it's better than nothing. What else can you expect after the other things they've done to the retirees? I'd be happier if they'd just gave back what they've taken away, I'd certainly be better off financially than I am with a little discount on service.

I'm surprised that they offer anything special for retirees. My company certainly doesn't.
How can we improve?
