Extreme HD but no HBO/Showtime Included

Message 1 of 2

I've been paying for the Fully Loaded Entertainment Pack for a few months and now I see that HBO and Showtime should both be included in my bundle for the Extreme HD Plan. They are the only channels from the entertainment pack I want, so obviously I'd like to stop paying $24 a month.  But the Extreme HD Plan also says that I should be receving the tennis channel, but when I go to that channel it says "Press ok to find out if this channel is part of your package" and when I press ok it says "Sorry, this program is currently unavailable. Please visit or call blah blah". I've spoken to two  different Verizon agents that agree that I should receive all 3 of these channels with my current plan, but both times they tried to transfer me I was on hold and then the call was dropped.


I have had my current bundle for years and understand that this deal is kind of new, but I still have the Extreme HD Plan, so it should be included. Both agents checked my zip code and the deal is available in my area.


How can I rectify this issue?


I am posting this again because I would like feedback from anyone who has gone through this before, I would not like to be redirected to a Live Service Chat Agent because I just wasted an hour of my life talking to that. 


Thanks for the help.
