Fios is unlikely to being considering discontinuing them, but Sinclair typically gets into these disputes every time they are renewing with all the carriers.  They typically ask for more then they are worth.

FOX tV AVAILABILITY

Those of us that reside in the Baltimore area have been informed by our local Fox station that Verizon will no longer carry this station after January 1.  If this is the case, we will all leave Fox and go to Comcast as we are all Raven fans and will miss some of the games which are carried on Fox.  We like Verizon, but we LOVE the Ravens!!!

No Fox Channel After Jan.1.2012 in Balto. County,Md.

Message 24 of 83

Just saw a message going across my screen on the local Fox News Channel in Baltimore County, Maryland that beginning Jan.1,2012, Verizon will no longer carry Fox. If this is the case many customers will be switching to another provider as this is a very poular channel and carries many of the Ravens and other professional football games. I will  be inquiring with my Baltimore County council and Baltimore County Executive to try to get Fox back.

We just got the same message in Richmond, VA.  Didn't they get in this kind of argument a few years ago but worked it out at the last minute?  If Fios does lose FOX, they will definitely lose our household to Comcast.  I will not miss Football and my son's fav show is The Simpsons.  Plus I can't stay up until 11 for local news, the 10 p.m. broadcast is what I watch.

Go to the following link to read about this ion the local Fox website.

Also we called Verizon and the rep said Sinclair Broaddcasting is in negotiations with Fox ,and it will probably be resolved before Jan.1,.2012. Sinclair also owns WNUVTV in Baltimore too. I think this happened a few years ago and it might have been with Comcast. I think Fox is trying to get its viewers to help with their negotiations.

But if they don't carry Fox, Comcast is going to get thousands of Verizon customers here in the Baltimore area.

Losing Fox 53 in Pittsburgh

Message 28 of 83

Just had a crawl on my screen saying Fox 53 will no longer be provided here in Pittsburgh,PA starting in January. Fios, are you out of your mind?  Football and some of the best programs are on Fox. Get your act together or you will lose thousands of customers to Comcast.

I am with you if they remove the CW I will cancel my account. Three of my favorite shows come on that channel.
