Put FOX News in the Select Plan.

The Select Plan includes CNN & MSNBC - BOTH in standard & HD, plus HLN & BBC.  BUT FOX NEWS IS NOT.  WHY NOT?  IS  VERIZON THAT LIBERAL?

Verizon may or may not be liberal.  But I suspect the plan lineups are based on the desire to maximize revenue.  With a horde of bean counters creating the lineups that achieve that goal.

You wanted the CHEAP package and all those crappy liberal news channels still cost less then what Verizon must pay for Fox News.  I am serious, not joking.  Complain to FOX for charging so much for their channel or for having such higher ratings then all the other new channels combined. 

 

Seriously some people are never ever happy.  Let me guess if Verizon gave you ALL the channels free for life you would surely complain loudy WHERE IS BLAZE TV!!!

To get Fox news in the package I believe Fox requires a bunch of other Fox channels to also be included.  So its not in the low tier Select plan.

Why Fox News isn't on the select channel (the number of channels Fox wants to be added along with Fox News) is irrelevant

Crying about how everyone is out to get Fox News is a Fox News viewer traditional

Its money.  Because of the number of channels required, its more expensive than Verizon wants to include.  The previously mentioned other channels are cheap and some even free.

What, no one remembers how much VZ had to pay for that sports channel Fox has?  At any rate, Fox has one of the HIGHEST subscriber rates in the business...not surprising considering their agenda.  Their viewers are also the least-mixed (or balanced) out of all the cable news channels. It is primarily a certain demographic that watches that channel...so if you want it, you should pay more for it. Fox expects it of you.
