I am so upset too. I had to uprage to the ultimate package just to get the channel and now it's gone. That was the only reason I upgraded.
But it was on Extreme....
Only in certain markets. Each market is dfifferent when it comes to channel packages and what you get. What one gets for channels in Florida under Extreme is going to be different from what one in NYC gets.

---Not only that but I think people should research everything and think it through before switching to cable because of one lost station. I'm not trying to be insensitive but I think cable has fewer channels available and if you want all of the same channels that are available in the Verizon line up on cable, you have to pay extra. I don't even like the qualilty of cable and it's kind of like a letdown when you're so used to the Verizon picture quality from the fiber optics.
I'm sure Verizon's decision to drop a channel is just based on ratings and it's all about money in the end, not what customers want. It kind of stinks but there really is a lot of overlap between many of the stations and many shows being played on one station will often appear on another and they get shown over and over again. I have so many channels selected for my Favorites list that I just can't possibly watch them all or keep track of others that I don't necessarily notice. I also have certain channels marked on my Favorites list that I sometimes just stop watching after a while because they'll show programs that just aren't interesting or enjoyable.
I'm sorry if any of my comments about this upset anyone but that is my opinion.
You must not be a fan of "NCIS". Over the past several months, NBC Universal has moved the majority of NCIS airings to Cloo, with USA showing much less of it, and usually when they do, it's only episodes from Seasons 1 and 2.
I'm smart enough to know there's nothing anyone can do about this, except make a personal choice to cut the cord. The day the NFL goes over the top with RedZone, I won't have FiOS, or any of their competitors.
Excuse me? I NEVER received that Cloo was being removed from my package!! I NEVER got that information!! I did get that channels were being moved, though!
Verizon, you had BETTER correct this. I am NOT happy right now, because I would always put Cloo on on Friday Nights for NCIS, and now I have NOTHING to watch!!
THANKS A MILLION, VERIZON!! BIG MISTAKE!
I just realized that Fearnet has been gone but Chiller is still there. Both of those stations are pretty much the same for horror movies.
My comments are not being directed to anyone personally and this is only my opinion but even if I were a fan of NCIS and preferred to see that show on Cloo, I might be disappointed but I don't know...I really don't get so upset over stuff like that and think about switching providers just over that. To me, it really isn't the end of the world and with so many other stations to choose from, several of which I don't have time to watch, I don't see that as getting ripped off. If it bothers you that much, then switch providers.
Perhaps a poll should be taken to find out how many people actually follow through with switching to cable vs. those who don't. I'm just curious because these forums are filled with so much venting.
Again, I'm really sorry if any of this upsets anyone.
