Dropped Fox tv

Message 1 of 34
(4,195 Views)

I'm very upset that not only did Verizon FiOS drop the Fox tv network but that there was never any warning for this other than from 2015 and that issue was settled and Verizon kept the network. We were warned of 2 other networks that were to be dropped by December 31st 2016 but not one of them was the Fox tv network

Where are you located?

Have you gone to station website?

Its not across all areas, so specific to yours.

Verizon,  get this fixed.  Work it out with Fox,  508 and 507, syracuse ny.  We pay enough money to you, so every day we do not have this channel, I want a refund. Get it worked out!

This is a peer to peer support forum.

It is an ongoing battle between content providers and the distribution companies.

And the customer is the one that always loses out.

We never know what the original rate was or what they are asking for.

What the content providers believe to be a small increase, could be large to distribution companies.

They could be asking for something as small as .25. But suppose everyone one of the hundreds of channels asked for similar raises. They could add more than $25 to our bill each month. And because Verizon has so many of us under contract, they have to eat the cost increases. Imagine the outrage for people that are renewing and they get hit with a large increase.

This is not unique to Verizon. My local NBC station has had a notice they are negotiating with DirecTV for a price increase and those customers could lose that channel.

Bristlecone did  this several years ago, same time before games, & a show final season. Using these to get  $$.  There are other ways to watch this network.  Thank you Verizon, for working for your customers!

So Verizon should just pay whatever the content providers want to charge?

Won't people them be complaining to Verizon for raising prices?

Sorry, but posts like this make me shake my head. You're complaining you pay too much now but you do realize that by Verizon giving in you are going to pay even MORE!!!  FOX wants YOU, NCOMSTOCK to pay MORE for it's programming. I hope you're complaining to FOX as well.

Verizon has raised my rates every year, and I have only been with them for 3 years. Am done after this. Went from $99 to $164 in less then 3 years. Now paying for something we don't get?? DONE!

From what I have heard others say, you can have the same experience with other service providers.

Have you called to see if they can give you any more discounts?

You typically can't get as good a deal as a new customer, but if you are just month to month, a contract will typically provide some savings.
