I am NOT happy to hear this!!  I want to switch as soon as possible to another provider that does have it.  I am hoping that the people who made this decision see this and decide to keep it., otherwise, they are losing my business.

I'm very disappointed in this decision as well as it is also one of the few channels I actually watch. With Funimation gone there will be no reason for me to keep the Extreme HD package as it's the only channel difference from the Prime HD package that I'd miss. Very sad news indeed, I really hope this decision is reconsidered. 😞

This is very upsetting news. I watch the FUNimation channel almost every day and dvr the shows I can't stay up late for. This is the only network on FIOS that shows anime all day long. We cannot watch shows such as Sekirei, Fairy Tales, The Sacred Blacksmith any so many other anywhere else.

Please reconsider removing this channel, I'm sure there are other channels with lower 'ratings' than FUNimation. How does Verizon know how many people actually watch a particular channel anyway, there are no Neilsen boxes as far as I am aware.

I'm super bummed about this. The Funimation Channel, and like 3 or 4 other channels are all I watch anymore. This is a sad day. Smiley Sad

I am extremely outraged and disappointed upon receiving this news from Verizon. The FUNimation channel is the absolute and only reason I've moved to Fios over my other provider. I even canceled with my previous provider when Verizon came to my region because I found out they offered the FUNimation channel. I am sad to say that if Verizon continues forward with this decision I will be forced to move my business elsewhere.

Please do not cancel this channel.

I used the 'Contact Us' link and sent an eMail too.  I doubt it will change their minds, but it's the best we can do.

 

Maybe somehow we can get the story picked up on one of the bigger (don't take offense at this) 'geek sites'?

As expected, I got the canned 'Very low viewership' response back from my eMail (twice no less).  Both VZ replies were sure to try to sell me OTHER stuff.

In regards to the ideas and fears of us not getting throught o FiOS, I called the Customer Care Line (1-800-837-4966). The representative told me that the contract with the FUNimation Channel is about to expire (March 15, 2012) and since they believe that there is low viewership they may NOT renew the contract. HOWEVER, by calling, he told me, I was being documented and as one of the costumers expressing interest in the channels being dropped. THEY PLAN TO REVIEW THE RECORDS FROM THE CUSTOMER CARE LINE TO DETERMINE THE ACTUAL CUSTOMER INTEREST IN THE FUNIMATION CHANNEL.

 

So? CALL! CALL! CALL! 1-800-837-4966. TELL THEM YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE CHANNELS BEING DROPPED AND WISH FOR THAT TO BE REFLECTED IN THE RECORDS!

 

This is not a joke. Just call, please!

I received a great deal of help from a number of customer call center rep's about this issue. The ironic thing is none of them in the departments have even heard about this issue SO KEEP THE CALLS GOING. I was told to voice my concern to the head corporate Verizon office.

140 West Street
New York, NY 10007
Corporate Phone Number: 1-212-395-1000

There are the details, spread the news, voice your opinion, send emails, sign the petition
