No German language channels?

I'm surprised that there's no German language channel(s) being offered by Verizon FiOS - plenty of other less common languages have channels available.

Why not German?

Where can I find updates regarding this info? I don't see DW or ProSieben in the channel lineup when I punch in my zipcode (07043).

Deutsche Welle and ProSeibenSat.1 are now showing up at channels 1787 and 1788.  This is for zip 20171 in Northern Virginia. Program listing is there  ( it is not a coming soon but real program info) but I was told I can't order yet.

for whatever reason the {please keep your posts courteous}  kept bouncing me back and forth until i asked for a supervisor. she was ver friendly and helpful, turns out theres a glitch in their system, and they are available, but they must call IT depatment to get their software fixed.

Ill let you know when i get the call about them being enabled
