If we don't get the SEC network then its back to dish network for me. This really sucks, and this is coming from an employee of Verizon.

Verizon will be lucky to get this deal done.  In their zeal to get a better deal than Dish/DirecTV/UVerse (they never had the leverage to do that to begin with) they have painted themselves into a bad corner.  Now that they are the one outlier, ESPN could play hardball and watch Verizon hemmorage customers for a few weeks/months until they cave.  It's possible ESPN wants the deal done quickly anyway so that they can beat their chests about what an amazing launch the network has built, but if they want to hold out I won't blame them.  

 

Today was the straw that broke the camel's back for a lot of folks.  Everyone else is done.  Verizon has their heads buried in the sand.  Tomorrow I do the math on how much I can save by switching to someone else who values their customers enough to at least comment on issues that are important to them.  I like FIOS, but I've had Dish in the past and I liked them too.

That's it - I am done with FIOS. Verizon is leaving me no choice and their apparent lack of concern is even more galling. Lots of bad PR and lost customers coming from this. I hope whatever deal they reach (if any, ever...) was worth it. I am dropping FIOS on Aug 8th b/c the SEC Network is non-negotiable in this house.

I found this small bit of news buried within this article. It says ESPN is in negotiations with Fios and is expected to come to an agreement to carry the SEC Network. It just doesn't say when? 2014? 2015? 2020?

Carry the SEC network. Carry the SEC network! Brighthouse, your major competitor in Tampa is. Will consider moving to Brighthouse to get SEC network.

Just as an FYI, there are three keys on your keyboard you may want to try out:

 

* Caps lock - if you hit that, it will stop everything from being in all caps

* Period (also called "dot") - if you put one of those at the end of a sentence, it makes your message easier to read

* Enter - you should consider hitting that at some point in your message to make a new paragraph.

These are peer to peer forums, you aren't talking to Verizon here.

I have called FIOS Customer Service and Verizon Communications corp offices and can't get any answers from them.  This is very frustrating for a Texas A&M fan! 

 

SO if we are all switching from FIOS to something else, who prefers Direct TV or DIsh as I need to move to one or the other..
