I can only speak about my experience. It took AT&T four times to come out. I HATE the computer interface when calling, but the technicians are very knowledgable. I have received my gift cards and used them. Today I had to call and find a balance and after the (stoopid computer) interface, the live interaction was seamless.
However, I can speak on some authority about Fox Sports San Diego. I am a media writer based in San Diego. I know that both companies will probably come to terms before opening day. There will be too much customer outcry if this does not happen. I too, am watching the wires and the other sources; but all indications are "go" for Fox Sports San Diego to be on U-verse. Both companies need a reasonable return on investment; after all it is a business. I want them to succeed at a reasonable rate of that return.
Again, it took AT&T four times to get my service right at my house. Not the technicians or an installation fault. This is a new service with IP TV; and please have patience. Wiring is old and have to be replaced, etc., etc. In five years, it should be moot as IP TV will be more of the norm not the exception. Technology will move forward and currently IP TV (AT&T and others) will have the best reception sans over the air. I am very pleased with the picture quality once my home issues were fixed. I'm actually impressed with the wirless receiver.
For me, I didn't threaten to pull my service; but also note if for some reason U-verse does not have Fox Sports San Diego by April 5, I will get a vendor/provider that does. For me, that will be satelite. Cox's prices and level of service has gone expensive (while the service has dropped in quality).
