Verizon used to be a provider that offered NBC Live Extra so we could stream NBC, NBC Sports, and Golf Channel events like the Olympics, Notre Dame Football, PGA Tour, and NHL games on NBC Sports' website and the NBC Live Extra app (similar to WatchESPN).  Now it looks like Verizon is no longer listed under the list of providers that offer live streaming.  Why did Verizon take this away?  Please get it working again!

Just a wild guess that it has something to do with Comcast owning NBC.

That would be understandable if Verizon never offered NBC Live Extra in the first place but they did.  They offered it not only during the Olympics but also during Notre Dame football season.  Now all the sudden Golf and NHL are coming back and they don't offer it anymore...

It's a new calendar year. I'm just guessing mind you, but since Comcast is the ONLY provider listed on the providers page of the app, the logical conclusion is there.

So it too see access for Fios TV customers, can log into the site, can see highlights, BUT NOT live events.  Anyone else see that?  Anyone find a fix? (certianly not getting much help from support!!!)
