No contract with WPXI the local NBC affiliate
PhD-Chemist

I got 2 emails early this morning about the lack of a contract with WPXI the local NBC affiliate and see that those several channels and sub channels have been blacked out. If Verizon can’t get a good price from the Pittsburgh affiliate, why not negotiate with a different affiliate or even just negotiate to get the network feed directly? I am more interested in the network content than the local content.

Looks like they settled their differences. I got an email at 8:28 pm and the stations are back online. I assume the guide will be updated tomorrow.

I agree. I already called Comcast to switch. Clearly no contingency plan and no concern for Verizon customers. Hello xfinity!

UNACCEPTABLE.  How do you not carry NBC in Pittsburgh??  Are you trying to drive all the loyal, long-time Verizon customers to be like their twenty-something children and go buy smart tvs and use streaming services?  Remember:  THIS IS PITTSBURGH, HOME OF THE BOOMERS.

I agree, I do not need WPXI. But I want NBC. Most of the things I watch is on that channel. If they dont fix that asap, I will be switching to Comcast. I am no contract so nothing is holding me back. And my husband is already on me to call and switch because he already has been annoyed with them.

Don't these **bleep** at NBC know we can get their station for nothing? Sometimes I don't understand where these so called exes. get their brains.

Might be time to start shopping for another provider.

I am more than a little displeased with this situation.    I already am paying for services that mean nothing to me like the Spanish channels.    If this is a financial decision between two parties like Verizon and Cox Media, why can't Verizon have a menu where subscribers pay for only the channels they want, like NBC ?    I would be more than happy to pay for the channels I want.     I hope that the parties can settle this soon, or I will be making changes in my cable provider.

It's apparent that neither side is concerned about the subscribers.  Will we be getting a reduction of our monthly bill since we're paying for the service that's not being provided?

It is absolutely ridiculous that Verizon does not carry NBC a main station. That is one of the only stations some people watch. I will be switching services if this issue is not resolved soon.
