A Barbie Channel? Really?

Message 1 of 3
(1,684 Views)

Verizon has added a barbie channel at channel 321 which it is all barbie all the time where it is now located on the guide where you would normally see a sports channel where the barbie channel is included in a group of channels that are typically catergorized as the sports package. It's all barbie all the time that is located in your sports package right after the longhorn network and right before the big ten network. Perhaps verizon should focus on finalizing the deals with the pac-12 network, the lakers network and BeIn sports before they do these kinds of things where i know of no one who was requesting it. In the meantime verizon's employee's union just came to a 4 year agreement with verizon where employees will not go on strike because of it. Verizon according to the union was trying to use a break up the union strategy which failed {please keep it relevant} Now if verizon would apply those same negotiating tactics to settle with the sports channels i mentioned then those channels will be added as everyone expects them to be.

Oh for heavens sake, you are being more ridiciulous than usual!

 

The Barbie Channel is nothing but a Widget, not a channel as such, and Verizon has simply put an entry to it in the Guide, I guess to draw attention to it and make it easy to find, very similar to what they do with VOD. I don't like that they do that, but it is their system, they can do what they want, and if we (and you particularly) don't like it, we can use some other provider.

 

If you don't incude that channel in your Favorites list(s) you will never, ever see it.

No trying to be funny but are you bi-polar? Many of your posts are very well done, thoughtfull and relavent but then there are ones like this that are just silly.

 

Justin is correct, it's just  a widget. If you notice cahnnel 321 changes ever week or so to a different widget.
