Thanks, just saw it on Facebook.  Strange that Verizon has no announcement on its site!

Why doesnt the channel show up in the viewing guide buy it works by entering 611 in the remote?

I turned on the TV this morning and much to my surprise, Channel 611 is back as WEATHERHD, aka The Weather Channel. AccuWeather is still on a different channel, but I have always liked TWC the best. When did they add TWC to the lineup?

I had Verizon FIOS years ago and switched to Spectrum after they dropped The Weather Channel.  Then after reading online FIOS had picked back up I just switched back to FIOS, which is now Frontier FIOS.  Is Frontier FIOS and Verizon FIOS the same company?  Because I do not have The Weather Channel and even trying to tune to channel 611 it jumps from 607 to 616.  While I was signing back up for FIOS I even asked my customer service rep if they indeed had The Weather Channel back and was told yes.  My response was "good, because Accuweather was horrible!"  If I can't get The Weather Channel on FIOS I'll be going back to Spectrum as soon as I get my new customer discount offer.

No they are not the same. Verizon sold parts of their territory to Frontier.

Wait...what??  Yeah, it's back - CH. 611, I'm just seeing this for the first time. (came back June 24...and it's now a week before Labor Day. SMH - better late than never I guess.😆)  

I had no idea, I came on here for another solution and saw this. Good!! That other AccuWeather channel was terrible and never watched it - just my opinion.

When it came to big thunderstorms, and even the Hurricanes hitting my area (Irene, Sandy.etc), I'd turned to TWC. It's been a pretty active Summer storm season in the Philly/NJ area.

Very cool, I dont have Facebook anymore so this is good news.
