Please reach an agreement with ABC & Channel 9.
Is the problem you (Verizon) or Channel 9....?
If your fee is NOT acceptable to ABC....renegoiate....or bite your lip...
....and absorbe the difference (without passing it onto your customers)..
We watch ABC programing 60-70 % of the time...(6-7 hours out of ten hours)

I agree please keep channel 9 on Fios.
Since the only one talking about this station being dropped is Newport Television (the owner of Channel 9), I have to believe that it is nothing more than a scare tactic and that a deal with Verizon is close. If this were not true, Verizon would be countering with ads about the unfair demands of Newport Television. HOwever, this is not happening, which is a good sign.
I hope they reach an agreement by midnight. Verizon suggests that if an agreement is not reached to use an antenna to get it for free. Who is going to buy the antenna, Verizon? Are you kidding me? Get the agreement signed, and people will be a lot happier.
