Verizon is never going to say exactly why, but I'm guessing it has to do with cost and the fact that it's not a very popular channel. Low ratings, repeats of shows that can be found on other networks, and bandwidth could be other factors.Most people have no clue what the channel was, that they even had it, never watched it, etc..

I know I never once watched the channel even though I knew it was there.

Some other providers dropped it as well, some brought it back, and Directv moved it to their ultimate tier so to me it has "cost" all over it.

I am so NOT HAPPY at the moment.  I watch CLOO every day.  Just POOF and they pull it.  I may change my subscription level as that is the reason I went with the Extreme Package.

I just discovered that cloo had been removed from fios channel lineup. Bring back cloo! You have all the sports channels that I do not watch at all. You have the Oprah channel that I do not watch! I watched cloo regularly. I pay you guys almost $200 a month and what do I get for it? You remove the channels I watch. My contract is up in 2015, looks like may not be renewing it!

Welcome to the forums. You're talking to other customers here.  None of us has any power to control the FiOS line up.  Nor can we do anything in response to threats to change service providers.

 

Enjoy!

The CLOO Channel was one of the stations I watched all the time. It's infuriating when FIOS makes these decisions without contacting the customers. Bring CLOO back!

I was also very disappointed this morning to discover that CLOO has been removed from the lineup.  I would love for it to return.  Not sure how to make that happen.  It is one of the few channels that I can count on that will have something I enjoy playing everyday.  Verizon please bring it back 😞

I, too am very upset that Verizon pulled CLOO from the lineup.  It is definitely the reaon I went for the Extreme package.  I certainly am going to consider some changes.  I watch CLOO all the time and can almost always find something I enjoy watching on it.  Very disappointed in Verizon.

I was away over the weekend and came back to discover the missing CLOO. I am simply horrified. I know it's just a TV channel, and life's to short to really get upset about such trivial things, but it was one of my favorites. Loved revisiting MacGyver after all these years, among other things.

 

Saddest part is that after a 40-minute online chat with Verizon, their people insisted the channel was still in my package -- they didn't have any information to contrary. I had to come here to discover the truth.

 

Let's start a campaign to bring it back!

As an FYI,you can watch MacGyver for free at http://www.cbs.com/shows/macgyver/ (with commercials) or if you have Netflix, you can watch it without commercials as a part of your Netflix subscription.

 

The other things Cloo shows are mostly repeatedly aired on USA, Universal HD, or one several other TV stations owned by the Scheinhardt Wig Company (or KableTown).  (Lots of the Law & Orders are also on Netflix.)
