If the station already exists, I would contact them to see if they will say what their plans are for FiOS.
Probably as part their service expansion in the Boston area.
I live in Bristol County. We have always had the Providence stations and the Boston Stations. I watch Boston Stations because I love in Massachusetts and Boston news talks about my politics. I started with FIOS when it first got here. No FOX 25 then and STILL no FOX 25. Now, no NBC Boston. Verizon, you need to get off your hands and get these channels on for us, otherwise, Comcast is looking good.
Wasn't there a change in Boston as to which channel carried NBC programming?
I thought others had posted that Verizon carried that channel.
its possible that local channels either don't want to be carried in your area, another channel doesn't allow their content to be carried or Verizon and those channels can't come to terms on price to be paid.
Verizon does carry Fox 25 in both SD and HD in Bristol County, on Channels 21 and 521. But they do not carry NBC Boston in that area, even though the rest of Eastern Massachusetts gets that station. Comcast doesn't carry NBC Boston in Bristol County either, despite the fact that Comcast owns NBC!
All signs point to NBC Boston deliberately choosing not to make the channel available on Comcast/Verizon systems in that area claiming they're part of the Providence TV market, much to the chagrin of residents in that area.
