“”“I believe in free speech and diverse views,  however.”””” 

You need not say more! Hahahahahaha

 

Lets get real, all Cable News is straight garbage. No one can honestly say, unless you are a masochist, that you enjoy watching MSNBC, Fox, CNN, etc. Talking head actors paid big bucks to scream things  that they don’t even believe themselves. It’s all garbage, all lies both sides. People that watch those channels are sad humans wasting their life.

OAN needs to go or at least it should not be bunched in with News channels because it’s not news at all .. it’s all conspiracy theory and it needs to lose any association with the word news. 
Actually, Fox News is pretty much the same nonsense with a large audience so they need to go too, but that’s more complicated problem.

“Just change the channel” isn’t the answer!

“Just change the channel” isn’t the answer to the big problem of wanting to drop fox news, oan, newsmax tv, & fox business! Our funds are going to these undesirable channels that give absolutely NOTHING to viewers, like myself, that do not subscribe to LIES & the REAL fake news being spread throughout those channels listed above on a daily basis!


I want more than some generic answer  of “just change the channel”! As a long time customer of Verizon, I believe it’s time for Verizon to respond to this growing topic, that will not go away!!! Please respond, Verizon! You owe your customers that much, at least!

As much as people might agree with you, that becomes a slippery slope of censorship that is basically unconstitutional at worst, and unprofitable at best. There are many channels people don't want, but have to take in their packages, one of the reasons so many turned to streaming instead of cable TV. Fios has a mix-and match option but it doesn't get to the kind of granularity you are looking for, so as the man said, just DON'T watch what you don't like. They will get the message at some point when the ratings drop, and profitability with them.

It is possible that OAN pays Verizon to carry their channel.

What would you say if someone that likes OAN says Verizon should drop news you may like?

Business drives what channels we have available.

If there aren't enough viewers to justify the price, channels go away.

Agreed. I don't want to pay for the OAN/Newmax conspiracies and propaganda.  Fine if you keep them in the lineup for the cultists who enjoy watching them, but I shouldn't have to subsidize it.

De-list OAN, Newsmax and RT

Verizon needs to follow the lead of DirectTV and delist OAN, Newsmax and RT  These platforms are propagandist bullhorns spewing falsehoods and false equivalency, and spreading deadly disinformation about vaccines which is leading directly to increased social cost of the pandemic, and needless deaths.

Re: Remove NewsMax and OANN now!

Message 28 of 52

Except that doesn't work, we still pay for OANN as part of our cable bundle and they receive money from Verizon in the form of a carriage fee per cable subscriber. We object to this and don't wish our money to go to OANN period and just changing the channel is NOT an option. 

In short we should have the option to remove this channel and other channels from our cable package which is something everyone has been asking for decades. The only other option is to remove them outright from the network like DirecTV did or risk losing more people to streaming/piracy.
