With negotiations seeming stalled with Nexstar I'm curious as to why the major network is being withheld on the option of "on demand"? The network is not owned by Nexstar and we should be allowed to utilize the expensive tool of viewing the networks show the next day after airing. If the local station doesnt get their due, so be it. I wonder if the contract with ABC even knows there is a conflict effecting their bottom line? When Verizon went to war last year with gray media we could still access NBC using the on demand option. Had to wait a day but atleast we could watch NBC programming. I'm contacting ABC and issue an complaint. Their bottom dollar is being effected as well.
I see where Verizon took my payment this week, and that included the Nexstar stations that I have lost. . I did not see a discount for my loss of Nexstar stations WIVB channel 4, CW channel 23 and News Nation. I had to find another way to watch the huge Bills-Chiefs game on last week. I have to find a way to contact Verizon and demand to be refunded for my lost time with these stations off Verizon.
I won't be able to see the Bills or NFL games on CBS, and am now shut off from seeing my local news on my CBS Buffalo station along with many shows I watch on the CW.
I am seriously considering switching to Spectrum if this situation isn't resolved promptly. I've heard both sides of the dispute. Meanwhile, I'm without some of my favorite channels.
If this isn't resolved soon, there will be thousands of Verizon users switching over to Spectrum.
I totally agree, $5 is nothing compared to the $50 I spent yesterday buying an antenna so I can continue seeing the programs I love. If we were late paying a bill there would be a late fee.
What fee are we entitled to for late programming?
Agreed! No Fox or NBC? If I have to go buy an antenna, then I might as well quit spending $200 a month for Fios. I'm one step away from cancelling.
Do better Verizon!
