While I like many FIOS features, I am very disappointed in loss of the Weather Channel, and may have to drop FIOS. AccuWeather is OK but there is no Local on the 8's equivalent for detailed local forecast, which is what I value the most. The FIOS Widget for local weather is incomplete in regard to a detailed forecast. Once again, VERY DISAPPOINTED!
I miss The Weather Channel too. Verizon says people get their weather other ways now, so why did they replace The Weather Channel with Accu Weather? If people do get their weather other ways, we don't need Accu Weather. It's all about cost, I for one will be getting The Weather Channel back, when I switch to Time Warner Cable next week.
I have to agree, while there were some things I didn't like about the Weather Channel it was a big reason I watched TV. Am actively looking at Comcast and Direct TV
to say everyone is getting their weather from the internet is bunk
I have been a customer for 20 years.
I work outside, and rely on the information TWC provides.
I find it disrespectful, for all the money I pay Your company,
that You should willy nilly cancel this Channel.
I also enjoy some of the other programs on TWC.
Your choice of "Accu-weather" is a poor one.
the Production values are High school grade, at best.
Let Me remind Verizon....You work for Myself and the rest of Your
Do what's necessary to put TWC back on Your service...
This is an incredibly selfish and greedy BAD idea on Verizon's part. It's the %#cking Weather Channel!? Why couldn't you get rid of like Faux News!? More factual and truthful stuff happens on the Weather Channel that Fox News by far!!! Don't tell me I can use Accuweather... What if I want REAL time coverage with people on the ground, video, etc when serious weather events are happening around the country and here in NJ??? And no, I don't feel like using the DATA on my Verizon Wireless phone. STOP BEING GREEDY VERIZON. We pay you enough for our cable, our internet and our cell phones. Yet another reason to switch to T-Mobile and some other cable provider.
The weather channel is much needed in areas with severe and quickly changing weather, this new channel is a joke. BRING BACK THE WEATHER CHANNEL! For those who think it is lame do not have to watch it. For many of us it is about being safe....
Ridiculous decision by fios to dump the Weather Channel! With all the money subscribers pay for your service, at the very least you'd expect quality programming to choose from. The weather channel is a mainstay for most everyone to get solid information from about weather amongst other things. BRING IT BACK NOW! You will lose my business and I'm sure many others, if the "executives" at fios don't get their act together! Absolutely idiotic on fios part to not have this rectified ASAP! .
