Its just another one of the carriage agreements renewal disputes. This time with Newport LLC. Probably an agreement will be reached even though for this one the date is close.

I second this motion, if only for the Giants game on Sunday.

Unbelievable timing to have a dispute with WXXA-23 right before the NFL Divisional Playoffs...

Glad I invited friends over to watch the games, only to try and get an over the air signal with an HD antenna (which, by the way, is not working)...

I am seriously considering dropping FiOS TV (and phone/internet along with it), even if that means paying the early termination fee.

The only ones who loose in these disputes is the consumer.

Actually, I heard that the problem is with the company that owns WXXA.  I could care less about the local affiliates, if it's possible to give us the national broadcast.

I'm a Verizon FiOS/Wireless subscriber and an NFL fan. I'm pretty upset with Verizon & WXXA right now and will be extremely unhappy if I miss the NFL divisional playoff games on FOX this weekend.

I'm so mad right now I am seriously contemplating paying the early termination fee to drop FiOS TV and switch cell phone providers.

Verizon, wake up!

I too am a subscriber and NFL fan.  This absolutely sucks.  As many people that watch Fox for primetime shows and NFL how could they not reach an agreement.  I wonder if this is a ploy to get people to call and complain or to jump the Verizon Fios ship.  I hope this is just temporarily and they reach an agreement soon.  I would hate to have to go out somewhere to watch the game.

This is my first post on this forum and most likely my last. i have been a verizon customer for over 15 years. I even gave DSL a shot back in the day and that was a wreck because I was on the edge of my Hubs limitations and had terrible service ( in a city of at least 25,000 people), and had to go back to Time Warner. Well, Fios hit my street and I gave it a shot because the sales dude sold me on the benefits and savings........he also lied to me about several things it seems. I had immediate issues with the second hand hardware, but worked through it on my efforts. A couple weeks in, again more issues, and time wasted figuring them out. Then I call to cancel the "free" HBO after 90 days and get rid of a faulty set top box and towards the end of the 16 minute phone ordeal.......the fricken phone goes dead and I'm back to square one.

NOW, I have a TV station within a bike ride away that has been part of my TV watching since it hit the air over 20 years ago.......suddenly has been removed from the channel package that I have signed on for.

I have the utmost faith in VerizonWireless Cell service, but Verizon Internet and TV has a long way to go to show that they are a threat to Time Warner's services.

Thanks for letting me vent,

Signed, Dis-Appointed

Second! I love my Verizon FiOS internet (when it works) but this is such a joke! Get your "stuff" together Verizon! You can't be **bleep** off customers this early in the game, otherwise Time Warner is going to eat you up. If they don't bring back FOX23 soon I will switch back to Time Warner. Luckily I don't have an early termination fee to deal with!

This is ridiculous. I can't believe they could'nt work something before the NFL Playoffs. Very dissapointing. If they don't get fox back I will look to change providers.

You are right, it is a joke!  I to will seriously look at going back to Time Warner.  In the past Time Warner always gave you excellent customer service. However, I have never had good customer service from Verizon to date.  .

Not only has Verizon lost the right to carry FOX WXXA in the Albany, NY market but now their program guide says:

"Channel Unavailable (2012)"

 Does this mean we cannot count on a resolution anytime soon?

 I won't put up with this nonsense indefinitely.

 I can switch back to Time Warner anytime.

 Verizon, if you lose me as a customer don't expect my business to return anytime soon.

 I suppose it will also be prudent to switch my cell phone service from Verizon to ATT.
