I used to have FIOS in West Warwick, RI which had NESN and other Boston Local programming.  FIOS has just come to my area in Cumberland, RI where I live now.  For some reason some group at Verizon has decided that Northern RI is in the New York area and not Boston area.  The channel line up reflects New York programming including the YES network instead of NESN.  Can anyone answer the question as to why Verizon would set up a town with service that does not include NEW ENGLAND Sports Network and is only 50 miles from Boston?  (we are 200 miles from New York).

 

If you are in the area or agree that NESN should be carried help bring this to Verizon's attention and call and post here!

 

Let's get NESN and the right local programming here in Northern Rhode Island!

That is the correct station according to Verizon's overall TV channel list, however in the channel lineup for zipcode 02864 (Cumberland, RI) does not include channel 576 (NESN).

That doesnt make any sense ! i feel for you ,I still want to get the national version of NESN here in southern california,I wish i could get all the regional sports networks like directv has. I kinda regret switching to verizon fios because of that plus the fact that verizon doesnt carry every home and away game in HD on the NBA league pass!!!
