Re: Removing OAN and AWE is a mistake for Verizon

There are many customers who want to hear both perspectives in order to find the truth which is usually in the middle. Removing one side of a story only serves to increase ignorance and audience manipulation. The good news is that most folks already know this and will just move to other venues to get a full perspective. If Verizon is not willing to fill that need, then opportunity will be knocking and someone will answer.

As a long time customer of Verizon Fios, I’m very disappointed that OAN and AWE are scheduled to be removed.

These outlets provide valuable entertainment that I will sorely miss. The cost I now pay Verizon is very high and will now likely cause me to cancel my service.

I agree.

And why would Verizon want to drive away so many viewers [with the commensurate losses in revenue]? Doesn't make business sense [but, if there's some underlying reason that Verizon may have, I'd love to know what that reason is].

I dropped Comcast to subscribe to Fios for the very reason that Verizon carried OANN, Newsmax and FOX so that I could get a balanced view on social/news issues.

How difficult is it for progressives to change the channel?

If Verizon CANCELS OAN, I will be canceling my service.  

Any questions?

I am a news junkie. Meaning, I watch more news than is healthy for any one person to watch. I enjoy getting my news from all sources, then deciding what to think for myself. So when I saw that Verizon is thinking of making one of my regular news sources a premium channel, it’s making me rethink just how much I really need to keep paying for my junk-channel packed package. After all, I am currently paying for the Extreme package plus the non-voluntary added sports fees, plus 3 streaming services. So I decided to look through my channel line-up to see what I actually watch. I was VERY surprised with my findings.

Including SD and HD channels separately, we get just shy of 400 channels total. Of these, we watch approximately ¼ of them regularly, and 2/3 of them NEVER. So how about instead of cutting my news sources, I trade you most of my sports channels, kid’s channels, music channels, shopping channels, women’s channels, cooking channels, and Spanish-language channels, and I keep all of the news channels?

Yes, I know that for $20 less per month, Verizon can pick my channel line-up for me. But back when “Your Fios TV” was known as “a la carte” that meant picking from 7 channel packages that always excluded channels we really like, or pay more than I’m paying now to keep them. Since now they won’t even tell you which channels are included till you go to checkout, I’d wager things haven’t changed.

Bring Back OAN.  

We do not blame you for carrying MSNBC.  All sides should be herd.

I suspect the revenue sharing by Verizon more of an issue than Herring becoming more greedy. Look forward to hearing a statement from Herring/OAN. This definitely won't sit well for many Verizon customers.
