We May Lose ABC, Freeform, ESPN, and Disney Channels

I just heard that we may lose ABC, Freeform and Disney channels. Most of what I watch live is on ABC, both news and entertainment. I'll be switching providers if we lose ABC.

Don't forget that also includes ESPN. If they fail to come to an agreement, all ABC/Disney and ESPN channels are going off. Considering the sheer number of channels that would be lost and the fact that they regularly 'advertise' ESPN as a fundamental part of their plans, if this happens, I'm leaving the service after 7 years. I was all but forced to sign a new two year agreement or pay a jacked up month to month bill... drop ESPN and ABC/Disney and I drop Verizon based on advertising fraudulent service.

No ESPN - dropping FIOS. Xfinity already knocking on the door and better TV packages.

Verizon working on new deals with Disney and ESPN. If you ESPN for the bowl games, see ya FIOS. Xfinity will get lots of new customers.

As far as I am concerned, I hope they drop ESPN and all the sports channels associated with it. Why should I pay for stations that I do not watch at all!

Loss of ABC ESPN (right before the bowls games!)

I've been a suscriber to Verizon since it was first offered here in my neighborhood - first persosn to have it installed!  I was POd whenyou dropped The Weather Channel butnow if you drop ABD local affiliate plus ESPN because of Disney dispute I ;ll switch to Xfinity as fast as they can come out to connect us!  Shame on you Verizon! Your service is expensive, you are making tons of cash  - now make a deal or you will loose viewers not just me!

May lose our favorite channels

Why oh why is this happening! This is more big cable **bleep** and as usual pay more and get less product. 

Fios and Disney Co networks

I understand the negotiations process but this needs to be resolved. I will change providers if Fios is unable to provide ESPN, 6abc, etc. It is your obligation, Verizon, to provide the promised product to your customers. We have options if you cannot. No indication that the loss of these networks was a possibility when options for renewal were made. Thank you.

Agreed! Get this done, Verizon
