Its not Verizon's fault (read my other posts). You better make sure Comcast's contract is not up anytime soon  with one of your favorite channels or you'll be dealing with the same situation. I would never go back to Comcast.When was the last time they updated anything , their guide looks like its from the 1980's.

That's why it's a good idea to have a month to month contract, even if you pay a little more each month. Sometimes it's better to switch every so often from one cable company  to another as these cable companies give better deals to new customers, although the cable companies count on most not doing this as it's too much of a hassle.

I hope someone in Corp. reads these and all post... But I can tell you this my mother in-law and I both have FIOS cable. And I can tell you with out a doubt I WILL CANCEL my subscription if come Jan 1 they stop caring FOX. So I hope some one reads this that is high up the food chain and knows that they will lose a lot of people. You can't take away local programming and expect nothing.

thank you

William

For the  10th time Verizon is not dropping Fox.  It is Sinclair Broadcasting who carries the Fox feed in certain cities, who are in a contract battle with Verizon. Call them and ask how much more they want to charge Verizon under a new  contract to carry their feed.

What is the story with Fox channels in Baltimore?

Message 56 of 83

FOX channels in the Baltimore area are running a crawler stating that after 1/2/2012, FOX channels will only be available on COMCAST, DirectTV, and DishTV.  They will no longer be on FIOS.

 

I signed with Verizon from DirectTV for the better service and selection.  If Verizon isn't going to carry my local channels, that leaves me no choice but to go back to another service with full channel.

 

What's the story here?  Will FOX channels be gone after 1/1/2012?

You will when the price of your sevice goes up ..... Why should Verizon pay a premium For a FREE over the air station.

You are talking symantics but not much else. 

 

If Verizon is negotiating with Sinclair broadcasting, who owns Fox and CW in Baltimore & Richmond, then what alternatives are they proposing should their negotiating fail.  If they are not proposing any viewing alternatives, then your comments making a distinction between Channels vs Station Owner are a mute point because at the end of the day, Verizon FIOS customers will not have Fox or CW channels in those viewing areas. 

 

Just like with the other service providers, Sinclair plays hardball.  However, if Verizon doesn't step up, they will likely loose subscribers.
