Definitive answer please! Are sports channels, part of the Extreme HD package?

Extreme HD
  • Everything offered in Essentials
  • Plus up to 41 additional HD Channels
  • Plus up to 14 Sports Channels
  • Plus up to 16 additional standard definition channels

 

 

 According to the above on Verizon's website, YES they are included, but ever since I signed up (4/23), I have been billed seperatley ($7.99/month), for these channels.     I have called cust service (ughhh!),they  tell me it's fixed, I get a credit, and then next month's bill, it's back again!    I want the channels  but I don't want to pay extra!     HELP! 

 

BTW, my zip code is 08081 in NJ.

I believe it may vary by area.  In Oregon, they are definately included in Extreme HD.

That is the problem, there is no, set answer from Verizon.   It was "sold" to me when I signed up as part of my Extreme HD package, and I have been assured on numerous phone calls (to Verizon), that that is the case......................but still a seperate charge.     I need something in writing.

I believe that Nationally the Sports Channels are part of the Extreme HD package (it is in Philly) with the one exception being the NYC/North Jersey metro area. I thought I had heard or read (but am not 100% sure) that it has something to do with MSG/Cablevision.

This is what I had heard also, but I live in zip code 08081, SOUTH Jersey, about 16 miles from Philly........................

If you follow this link:

 

http://www22.verizon.com/Residential/FiOSTV/ChannelLineup/ChannelLineup.htm

 

It will take you to a part of the Verizon website where you can enter your zipcode and city/town location, and it will give you a list of channels available in each package. You will need to click on the Extreme HD tab to hopefully get an accurate list.

 

I used your zipcode (08081) to view the list, and if you are in Monroe Township then yes, the Sports Channels (300-319 I think) should be included in the Extreme HD package. There are other township options, I did not check each one to see if any are different.

 

I hope this helps.

Yes, I have already checked this out for my zip code and location, and it shows ALL the sports channels are part of the package.    But that being said, I still get billed the extra $7.99/ month!  I point this out to the Verizon people on the phone as well.  It is soooo **bleep** frustrating.    They say I am right, but can't correct the problem in the billing.    I am ready to switch back to Comcast!      Bob

These are the 14 channels that are included in the Extreme HD package.  If you live in NY or NJ they are NOT included in the Extreme Package. 

 

Your zip code brings up that these channels are NOT included in the extreme package for your area. Hense why you keep being billed for them.

 

So, if you keep calling Verizon and keep getting them to give you a credit for the channels, then keep it up. You're getting channels you're suppose to be paying for for free.

 

Sports Package

(Included with TV Extreme HD, except D-NY & U-NJ) Downstate NY and Upstate NJ

Blackbelt TV

Fox College Sports (Atlantic, Central, Pacific)

Fox Sports Espanol

Gol TV (soccer)

Golf

HR TV (horse racing)

Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) +

MAV TV (for men)

Tennis

The Outdoor channel

The Sportsman Channel

TVG (horse racing)

World Fishing Network (WFN)

 

hope this helps

The OP is hardly in upstate NJ, their  zip code is South Jersey (they are south of Philly in NJ).  Should be in VHO8 (philly) and get all the sports channels without any extra charge with the Extreme package.

I'm just saying what V-spot is showing me for that zip code and area. By the way, V-Spot is what verizon uses to place orders for residential services. When I pull up that zip code and area, it says FiOS is available, but when you see the addons that are available, it shows the sports package, because it's NOT included in the extreme package for that area.
