Perhaps the OP doesn't drop Verizon because they make you sign a contract?

Maybe they do, but not everyone is under contract. I've been out of contract since 2013 and have been month to month since then. A lot of people are month to month.

Bring back the Weather Channel. Accuweather is worthless.  Nothing of value and it only repeats over and over.

Major storm about to hit the east coast.  Turn on accuweather, see the forecast for Flower Mound, TX.     Not what I need.  I really miss TWC.

Ditto!  This storm may be one of the top 5 storms of the century, and Accuweather is talking about the moon, stars, and college basketball!  Are you kidding me?!  And Verizon thinks this is better than The Weather Channel???!!  Again, are you kidding me?!?!   Accuweather is like a high school production.  Full of amateurs and wannabes.  BRING BACK THE WEATHER CHANNEL.  We want to have real news, not amateur hour.

 

Oh, and to add insult to injury, Accuweather refers to the east storm coast as "blizzard like."  HOW ABOUT CALLING IT A BLIZZARD?!    But, excuse me, I'm making the mistake of thinking that Accuweather actually is based on facts.

 

WE WANT THE WEATHER CHANNEL back!  I'm going to change to Comcast.

Reason they say blizzard like is that the technical definition of a blizzard has nothing to do with amount of snow.

It is snow with winds of at least 35MPH and 1/4 mile visibility.

So some areas may see if others may see it only for short periods of time or not at all.

You want storm coverage simply turn on your tv. Every single news outlet is covering it.

Now that a big storm is coming I'm really annoyed that a company the size of Verizon couldn't negotiate a deal with the weather channel.   Accuweather is a low-budget joke compared to TWC and I pay quite a lot in my FIOS preimium package to at least have parity with Cablevision.   This is a competitive market and I'm happy to see if Cablevision will pay my early termination fee so that I can have service that I want.  I see that many complain about this as well.  You need better deal makers.

I was open to trying Accuweather but it's a low-budget joke.  TWC is a far superior channel and now that a big storm is coming it really shows!  Someone can't negotiate at Verizon.
