Science Channel dropped as of 4/26/2022

Just found out after going down the Verizon 'chat' rabbit hole that I no longer have the Science Channel.  It was dropped and NOBODY told me it was happening.  Watched it last night, and today, 'poof' it was gone.  What the heck?  Verizon needs to restore it to the packages it was removed from.

They actually sent a tech out to troubleshoot the issue instead of just owning up to the fact they dropped the channel.  The tech told me they moved it to the ultimate package.  This is the game they are playing.  Have the contract expire..drop the channel...bring it back in a higher package..  I told Verizon I am paying for a package with this channel and I expect it back in my packge.

Just discovered this myself.  Now they want $30 more for the same crap I had yesterday.  Makes streaming a whole lot more attractive.

Wasted a lot of time to find out Verizon dropped it from my package. More incentive to drop cable altogether

So super upset about this since I pay for the extreme package that includes every dang channel except the sports package and it states I have the science channel as part of my package but they killed the channels. So not right and for dang near $300 a month including equipment this is unacceptable

What a bunch of crap. Are we getting anything new in place of loosing my beloved Science Channel? Probable a home shopping channel, if anything. I’ll consider Spectrum now!

The best part, it still shows on their website as being part of my package.  WTH are they doing.  I swear they are becoming just like an Extended Auto Warranty company. 

"Oh, we told you that was covered when you bought the plan but if you review page 556, paragraph 3 line 6 it clearly states that we can and will change the terms and covered parts at our whimsy.  I'd hate to be you." 

Pretty much sums up my chat conversation with Verizon today.

Completely unacceptable.  Verizon will lose business if they keep this up. Add one channel back for $15 a month…..are they serious?

I sit down after dinner to watch... and I get some message on the screen.  I was confused.  Well... power of Google.. I end up here.  One of the handful channels that I care to watch.  Totally not happy!
