Questionable programming on Channel 35

Several Saturday nights ago about 11:20 pm , I was flipping through the local channels and was shocked to see a filmed session of a man paddling a woman on Channel 35

At first I thought I had stumbled upon a CineMax channel but soon realized that this was indeed one of the local access channels...This was definitely an amateur production but it was a bit surprising that Verizon would allow this type of programming to a company named NYCSEXYHONIES.COM....

I thought these channels were reserved for community organizations and not internet porn sites.....Where's the oversight from Verizon????

Not sure if I was the only person who caught this "show."

I am very sorry to hear this has happened. We would like to look into this further, but need more information from you. I have sent you a private message to get more information.

Just judging from the channel number, this is public access prgramming that Verizon is required to carry and has no control over the content. I believe that the local franchise authority and not the carriers are the people to be asking about this. I have no interest in Verizon censoring any channel content whatsoever.

I hear what you are saying about censorship of content but I just didn't think these channels are supposed to be used for free advertisement of porn sites..

This programming is very objectionable when community groups who have very positive messages can't seem to get on these channels!! Just don't think free access for this ADULT SERVICE is how these channels should be used....

No one is arguing with your objection, they are only indicating that you are complaining in the wrong place.  Local access channel capability is provided by Verizon, however your local franchise authority / minuicipality controls who has access not Verizon.

Thanks for the education... Just saw something on TV that I thought had questionable content and went to the Verizon website to find out where I could register a complaint...I COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING REMOTELY RELEVANT THERE!!!!! This message board was it!!!!  Verizon then has not done a good job of providing information to its customers when such issues arise.......

most likely you saw this in manhattan. verizon nor time warner who carries the channels also has no editorial control of what is shown on local access channels. contact mnn.org   they run those channels.
