Looking at the previous threads going back several years, many have and continue to request NASA TV.  Come on Verizon, most other carriers (DirectTV & Dish, AT&T UVerse, Brighthouse, Time Warner, Cox, RCN) have this channel but we don't.  Please add NASA TV to the lineup.  Everyone, please vote yes in favor of this channel, and hopefully Verizon will listen to their customers!


Unfortunately I have given up on Verizon ever adding the NASA channel Smiley Frustrated.  Many phrases come to mind - It's like spitting the ocean and expecting the level to rise, carrying coals to Newcastle are 2  of the clean ones that could be posted.

Possibly because it is available so many ways.

New smart TVs probably have the app, and other boxes (ROKU, APPLE TV, etc) can carry it to your TV as well.

Even though they may not have to pay for  the content, there is a cost. Connectivity to get and distribute it as well as taking up a valuable channel.

Can't say that I have ever heard anyone say if FIOS doesn't get NASA, I am leaving.

Never had this problem with Comcast!  This is a free TV channel, like PBS.  Why don"t we/verizon have access to NASA TV?

I totally agree.  It is time for FIOS to have the NASA programming.

FYI, NASA channels are available on Roku boxes, as well as quite a few others FIOS ignores.

 

About it taking up 'valuable' space on FIOS, we were told years ago at launch that they had 'unlimited space' and only thing holding all channel adduitions back was a bad channel map design.

 

Well, if that has been fixed, they have had 5+ years to do so, then there should be almost no cost to add a free channels to the service.l

 

The worst part is no response from FIOS on this for over *5* years.  How are you supposed to trust a provider that treats you like a number?
