Report: AT&T U-Verse Drops Pursuit Channel From Lineup; DIRECTV Drops HD Version

Pursuit loses providers.

PWInsider reports that DIRECTV has dropped the HD version of the Pursuit channel from their lineup. The SD version of the channel is still available. There is also a report that AT&T U-verse has dropped the channel from their lineup after the deal between the two parties expired at the end of last month.

Pursuit is the current home of IMPACT Wrestling, which airs every Friday at 10 p.m. ET. IMPACT began airing on Pursuit in January after their deal with Pop TV expired. Ratings and viewership for the show on Pursuit have gone unreported as it has fallen below a 0.03 rating each week.

The show has also run into several issues on Pursuit, with the lineup listing IMPACT has four 30-minute shows instead of one two-hour show, thus messing up DVR recordings. Recently, the channel aired commercials in place of the main event and aired the previous week's episode instead of the newest episode.

Fans can still watch IMPACT live on Twitch every Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
