Why would they? This is a peer-to-peer forum. However, they've said many times that it isn't coming back.

And that is true - Verizon FIOS and Accuweather has a contract that spans out for like 10 years or more.

Accuweather is very basic and in its early stages - yes. However not having localized weather radar (like TWC had) is problematic for customers.

I don't care what Verizon thinks customers should do...this whole they can get it from their phone, iPad, etc. is **bleep**. Its just a smokescreen excuse nothing more.

The fact is, people will leave Verizon FIOS for the programming deletion tactics, their ever increasing costs for packages and their poor customer service.

 

Fortunately, I have no issue with their phone and internet services........but this whole cable FiOS thing has done me in... I will be moving towards Direct TV or back to Comcast, Verizon has been nothing but issues and problems witihn the last 2 years. Just cannot justify to remain with them......and the sad part is, Verizon doesn't care.

I hate, hate, hate, hate the AccuWeather Channel!!!  Doesn't Verizon make enough money from us customers to work out a deal to keep the Weather Channel?  Did I say that I hate AccuWeather Channel?  Oh yes I did but I can't say it enough!

I am sure that I will be going back to Time Warner when My contract is up. I miss the Weather Channel and Accuweather really really really really stinks.

As soon as my Fios contract ends in September I am going back to Comcast.  I can not imagine going through another snow filled Winter without the Weather Channel.

I'm so happy Verizon isn't paying for such a useless channel as TWC, that I might re-up with them early.

Sorry but I can. While I do miss weatherscan, channel 49, the Weather Channel itself was not worth the money. I could care less about the shows it had on.  It spent more time showing useles shows rather than showing the weather. The loss of one channel, especially the Weather channel, is NOT going to make me run back to the WORST cable company on the planet, Comcast.
I give Kudos to Verizon over this, it is about time a cable company stood up to the greedy channel operators.  Reading some of this one and done posts in this thread are really rather funny. Either they are not for real (which I am betting many are) or just do not understand how tha cable tv game works.  Frankly I am tired of the high cost of cable, and the biggest reason for that is the CHANNEL OPERATORS and their greed.

The removal of the Weather Channel was a very poor decision.  Accuweather is substandard.   I would like to see the Weather Channel returned to the line up.  I may have to take my business elsewhere if this is not rectified.

AccuWeather is AWEFUL!!!  The stories are beyond bad & their "local weather" is bad.  For this reason alone I am seriously considering switching to Comcast as my contract has expired.  Please bring back the Weather Channel.
