It went dark last night 9/6 right in the middle of a program. No advanced warning, no explanation. I'm livid.

fios has told me they are aware of the problem and it should be fixed by 9/8 at 5:45 am.  we will see.....nothing but problems the last few months.  seriously considering going back to cable, as much as that would kill me.

Yes I noticed the same thing.  I was hoping to watch "The Civil War" tonight, and I'm bummed out!

 

Just to let everyone know, I did get in touch with Support about this, and I was told that there was an outage for all Channel 13 channels, HD and SD, and that they were working to restore it.  I was also told that they estimated that it would return by 6am tomorrow (Tuesday, 9/8).

 

Let's see what happens...

Same here! I get a screen which says the channel is no longer available but calling customer service says there are 'technical difficulties' and service should be restored by tomorrow morning. This would happen the night the remastered version of 'the Civil War' premieres.

 

😡😡😡😡

I just contacted FIOS and spoke to a man in India who tells me that PBS 13 will be restored by the morning of September 8.

According to twitter feed from WNET, it is an atmospheric issue affectiong FIOS and DirecTv.

Screen sign reads "Programming on this channel is no longer available.  Your FIOS TV service is working."

 

Bit of an oxymoron there, huh?

 

(btw, "no longer available" has the ring of finality, doesn't it?)
