I wrote out to the engineer at WFMZ that handles WDPN. Apparently, Fios does not want to carry Decades, while WFMZ has tried to get it carried.
But, it's not limited to Decades, as Fios doesn't offer LIGHTtv from WTXF, and Grit from WDPN.
FIOS has to offer the primary channel from WDPN which is MeTV, but it doesn't have to offer all the sub channels.
Comcast has Decades but apparently it doesn't have getTV.
I like them all - at least the ones with classic tv.
I tried watching Justice Network and it was murder focused shows. Awful programming yet Fios has this subchannel. The content was just about as negative as scenes of people getting stabbed.

Please add DECADES TV (Washington, DC / WRZB Over the air 31.5) to Washington area channel lineups. They show some terrific old TV shows.
I subscribe in Montgomery County, MD.

Try reaching out to the local station that carries. They may be under must carry rule and would need to request it from Verizon
Is there a local OTA station that carries it?
If not, then Verizon can't carry it as it is not a cable station.
Go here to see if there is a station in your area that carries it.
If no local channels, then FiOS won't carry.
It is possible that the local channel in your area that did carry it has dropped it.
