Local News?

Message 1 of 6

Does FIOS have a local news channel that runs only news programming 24/7? I'm really just trying to figure out if there is something similar or to substitute for News 12 Long Island (My local news channel)

Fios 1 located on Channel 1 or 501 in HD is the closest you will get to news12.  Its not news12 but its something and its not 24/7.

501 is not in HD yet, they were planning on it, but it never happened.

Does 501 work for you?

Yes it does, but channel 1 & 501 are the same SD feed of Fios1. They were originally going to make Fios1 in HD too so they started by putting an SD feed at 501 to get ready, but so far the HD feed doesn't exist.

No not enough local news especially in the early am. They really need to start local news about 4 30 am.
