Channel 15 MundoMax in VA - it now shows H&I instead of MundoMax, and when I go to the TV listing for the Preferred Package online, it displays H&I with the programming of MundoMax.  MundoMax is one of my preferred channels, will it be moved to a different channel?

Thank you!

That's actually a local broadcast channel in Northern VA. It's a sub channel of Channel 20. If the local broadcaster changed the programming on that channel, it's out of Verizon's hands. They simply retransmit what the broadcaster sends them.

Think of it as your favorite local radio station changing format. It happens frequently on local digital sub channels.

H&I refers to Heroes and Icons, a new digital sub channel being carried on local TV stations owned and operated by Fox. WDCA 20 is one such channel, and Washington DC was one of the markets to launch the channel.

The only way to get it back, is to convince one of your local TV stations to carry it.

We have the same issue in Maryland. We used to have MundoMax and now we have H&I which we do not really care about at all.  I have hard time understanding why Directv and Comcast users have MundoMax and verizon users cannot get it. We only have a handful of Spanish channels and not having access to the Spanish channels is really ashamed specially when other people in the same area have it (Comcast and Directv users).

I would like to know how verizon could really guide us to get the channel back.

As stated, MundoMax was replaced as a sub channel to WDCA.

So unless the other providers are caryying it sompleace else, they would have lost it the same time as Verizon did.

Where do you live?

Have you seen it actually being carried or just going by an online channel list.

Verizon can't change the content of what is being carried.

They would carry whatever the channel broadcasts.

What is the station id of the channel in question?

Is there a way to retrieve the list of local TV stations/POC so people can contact them?  

Thank you.
