Do not know what is going on, but AMC is one of the best channels. Get rid of the channels that are no good. There are quite a few of them, that will pay for AMC. Do some serious house cleaning. Clean out the bad to keep the good.
I've been a loyal Verizon customer for 4 years now, ever since I bought my house and it had FiOS in the area. Before that I was a Comcast customer for 28 years.
If Verizon doesn't work out a deal with AMC ... and I don't care who is the greedy one here ... then I will drop Verizon in a heart beat and go back to Comcast.
That isn't a threat, it's just the way it is.
AMC has a right to be greedy. They are putting out some darn good shows that people like.
I have been a FIOS customer for a long time but if they let AMC go, I will be dropping Verizon TV and Internet.
And just REMEMBER you said that when you bill goes up to pay for AMC. Don't think for a second that any rate increase AMC gets won't be passed on to us!!!!!!!

The value for money of FIOS has been steadily declining as its price steadily escalates and "features" degrade its usability. This is the final straw.
I will absolutely cancel my FIOS TV if AMC is dropped for even a month.
I have been a Verizon customer for years. I have over 1800 channels and the only one that I really watch is AMC. The programs are top-rated! My kids watch a few other stations and my husband mainly focuses on the history channel. I pay a huge cable bill and there are hundreds of mundane, boring stations that I could care less about. If I can't watch my favorite program, The Walking Dead, I am done with Verizon.
I have been hearing and "seeing" the same ads about AMC too! So what is the deal Verizon? Can someone from Verizon tell us why AMC is running ads on TV claiming that "VERIZON IS GOING TO CANCEL AMC."
I like The Walking Dead, Mad Men, etc., and I'm looking forward to the new series Bates Motel. If AMC leaves Verizon, I'll leave Verizon. They already cancelled Black Belt Channel!!!
