And what if you have to pay more to do it? I certainly don't want to pay extra for a channel I don't want. I am sure there are other channels you feel the same way about. If they do add it and have to raise prices, how many forum posts will there be from people who are now upset about price increase?
I agree 100%. I switched to FIOS for Tennis Channel. Since it was simply removed (in the middle of the US Open no less and without any warning) I have been exploring my options. I don't need to cough up this much cash and not even be able to get something as basic as the Tennis Channel!!
Fios Extreme package tennis channel customers are
Actually being used by Bain Capital as pawns to get Verizon
To put Tennis Channel in the Ultimate package instead of the more
Expensive Extreme Package.
We have cancelled the Extreme package and downgraded
To Ultimate, thus saving $30 a month.
I think you've got your packages mixed up. Ultimate is ABOVE extreme and more costly. I think you meant you downgradedto PRIME.
Tennis channel is trying to get Verizon to move it to the lower tier (hence more subscribers as you indicated) AND ask for more money per subscriber at the same time.
I have the Ultimate (the highest) package and we lost Tennis Channel, too. Tennis Channel pulled the programming because Verizon wouldn't agree to their terms to include it on lower tiers. Come on, Verizon. Please work this out! Do you listen to your customers?
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY NEGIOATIONS WITH THE TENNIS CHANNEL ARE TAKING SO LONG. THE ONLY REASON I SIGNED ON FOR THE TV PLAN I HAVE IS SO I COULD GET THE TENNIS CHANNEL. I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE THIS SITUATION HAPPEND DURING THE US OPEN. i EQUATE THAT TO FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS AND OTHER AMERICAN SPORTS EVENTS OF THIS MAGNATUDE. I ASSUME I WILL BE CREDITED FOR THE DAYS/WEEKS THAT I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE TENNIS CHANNEL.
THIS IS JUST THE CROWNING BLOW FOR ME. I AM HAVING DIFFICULTY WITH VERIZON BILLING AND CAN'T SEEM TO GET TO ANYONE WITH A REASONABLE EXPLANATION OF MY SITUATION.
I HOPE THIS EMAIL WILL GET SOME ATTENTION AND THAT I WILL BE CONTACTED BY A VERIZON MANAGER OR EVEN BETTER MR. IVAN SEIDENBURG.
