Why is the Grit channel running the message about Univision and not showing the stated programming?  I wish there was an easier way to get answers regarding these issues.

Please bring back two channels, GRIT TV and Escape TV, fix the channel guide on GET TV (which has been wrong since you deleted GRIT and Escape.

Have you checked the local channel that carried them?

Its possible them dropped them.

Happened here in Baltimore area when two channels merged and they dropped a number of their sub channels.

I’m happy to say that Grit ch 485 and GetTV 464 appeared this morning.  Escape ch 486 is still displaying a messaging and no program.

I'm paying for full service, yet Channel 485 has been down for a month, or more, along with a couple of other channels that carry programs I enjoy.  When might you restore these channels, or issue a credit on my monthly bill for the absence of these channels?

Is there a local channel near you that carries it?

Its not a national channel. Has to be carried by a local station.

Do you have an error message on your screen?

If it says channel is ok but provider is not sending content, try complaining to the content provider.

I believe GRIT in DC area was carried by WFDC.

This issue needs to be resolved and the channels impacted returned to on air status.  You can still receive Grit Tv and Get Tv on regular non cable television.

I had read on another forum that CH 50 had been dropped which is Univision (I believe in Boston area). Grit (and a couple of others) were probably subchannels off of that. Because of negotiations, the content has been dropped for now.

Ok, this is January 12th 2018 and it is happening again. Grit 485, Escape 486 among probably others are not bradcasting as before.  Why is this happening again?  I thought the negotiation was settled.

Are you getting the Univision message or some other message stating these channels aren't available?

The channel has been displaying all day, “Your Fios TV is working. The content provider is not currently sending programming for this channel.”   There is no other info.

Thanks,

Did you get an answer to Why GRIT, THIS and GET tv channels are not showing content on Verizon FIOS?

No I did not.  I hoped that maybe someone from Verizon might shed some light on this issue.  The last time this happened, the company, I believe (Univision?) was going to raise rates.  I can only assume this is happening again.

I believe there was some channel consolidation in DC area.

So they may have either dropped the channel or it is being rearranged and hasn't been reconnected yet.
