Al Jazeera In English/ Mega Tv/ Sur Peru Update
Specialist - Level 1

I was the one who broke the news on here about al jazeera in english being added to the fios lineup in new york and new jersey only on channel 466 so now i am going to break some more news on here about what is going on with that channel because channel 466 continues to have no programming on it since it went dark on july 31st which was almost two weeks ago. From what i have found out al jazeera in english will be added but they are still negotiating the terms. Mega tv will come back at some point because they have a contract with verizon to air their programming on fios tv. The delay with these channels being added is the terms of the deal in the case of al jazeera in english and from what i have been told al jazeera in english has already been available in the washington dc area for quite some time on channel 451 if you live in dc. The problem with mega tv is that there is no affiliate in new york to broadcast that channel so that people in new york and new jersey can watch it but from what i was told mega tv is in negotiations right now with another affiliate although i do not know which one. My guess is that it is probably channel 11 or as they call themselves pix 11 which already owns a spanish station which is channel 462 estrella tv which means star tv in english. As for the long history of requests that people have made on here about adding a peruvian channel because that is a country that is currently not included in the lineup of the spanish programming package that people pay for separately but  have nothing to watch i have been told that a peruvian channel along with many other channels in spanish will be added and if you are paying for that package those additions are coming. I am not sure if it is sur peru or peru magico but my guess is sur peru since many of verizon's competitors have that channel already. There are a lot of channels that are about to be added that will first start with spanish programming then sports channels and after that some channels in hd like gol tv hd along with fox soccer channel in hd. If you are trying to get a channel added then there must be at least 200 requests for it so whatever it is that you want contact your fellow customers to get those channels added if you want them. I do not have a date for when the al jazeera in english channel will be added or when mega tv will be back or when a peru channel or those sports channels in hd will be added because it is in the hands of other people but i thought this was worth passing on to those of you who are growing frustrated with what has been going on with the company's inability to give customers what they have been asking for a really long time.
