Decades is gone from FIOS, at least in the Philadelphia area.  The channel was provided as an over the air sub-channel or the CBS station.  Now, it's a sub-channel of ME-TV's affiliate but Verizon doesn't carry it.  They do carry ME and other sub-channels, just not Decades.  Bring it back.

You can also reach out to the station that carries it and ask that they work with Verizon to carry.

it would probably need to be part of a contract negotiation

Yes, bring it back!! Twilight Zone marathon is today and can't see it. Not to mention that was a channel worth watching.

i thought over the air channels had to be carried, or is that an out dated thing?

Local stations have 2 options:

1) They can invoke must carry. This allows them to specify the channel number and it must be carried. But they don't get paid for their content

2) Negotiate for carriage. This is what most if the larger stations do. They negotiate with cable providers as to what channel number, how much they will be paid (this is where local broadcast fees go) and what content will be carried.

This is mainly a peer to peer support forum.

Verizon does not respond to posts here.
As I stated earlier, have you tried reaching out to the local station that carries Decades in your area?

Try posting on their social media page.

If there is no local station in your area that carries Decades, then unfortunately, you are out of luck as Decades is not a cable channel.
