No CBS Sports channel with FIOS???

Message 1 of 15

why do I have NBC Sports but have to pay for CBS Sports? I missed probably the most exciting US Open men's final match ever last night because I just found out that I do not have CBS Sports channel.......I never imagined that out of all of my channels I would not have a CBS channel.....and I pay Verizon over $180 per month! I am not a happy camper

We have CBS Sports - it's channel 94.  Obnoxiously, we don't have it in HDTV.  Last year, Tech played a game on there and I had to go watch it with my Dad (he has Cox cable) to see it in HD.


Not having CBS Sports in HD and not having the PAC 12 network are two glaring deficiencies in FIOS.

Stayed on channel 503 (CBS main) for the whole match in VHO8 (Philly / S. Jersey region).

Why is CBS Sports a paid for service channel? Has local sports, college etc yet you have to pay? What is the cost through Fios??

You have to subscribe to the Ultimate HD package to get CBS Sports Network.  There also was a sports package for about $8/month that includes it but I don't even know if that is still offered.
