I agree completely; losing these channels is just not right. I had a beef with Verizon before for dropping the Funimation channel and now NHK is going away. I'd like to know why....
Very disappointed in the decision to pull the only French Language Channel on FIOS - particularly as it is already a pay per view station.
Verizon FiOS has pitifully few international channels, and now they've announced that three int'l news stations are being removed: France 24, NHK (Japan), and RT (Russia). We're already an ill-informed and self-involved nation; we should expect our communications companies to remedy that situation, not reinforce it.
This is really, really a shame. I cannot imagine that they cost so much.
Agree completely. These three channels undoubtedly cost them next to nothing. The so-called explanation explains nothing. I've been a Verizon FIOS customer for 5 weeks and am serious thinking about getting out because of this. I wrote to complain and got back the usual corporate garbage, as follows:
Verizon is working to provide the most robust entertainment programming in the industry. We understand how important it is to have access to your favorite channels on FiOS TV.
Feel free to register for the Verizon Community Forums, and add your suggestion for a FiOS TV channel:
Politics! These 3 channels are free, and there is no reason for Verizon to drop them other than because of some political feud, or some untra-con at Verizon thinks they are too liberal for his/her liking. I'm calling to cancel my 2 year contract and going back to antenna and Clearwire.
i'd like to voice my displeasure too. doesn't verizon have to carry these over the air channels?
I too am very upset about losing NHK, especially as I am in the broadcast area of WYBE, Philadelphia. It provided brilliant coverage of the Tsunami, it provides cultural exposure to the Asia pacific, and just the other day it provided about 20 minutes of news on the President's tour of Myanmar/Burma. You won't get that on any US station. Why won't FIOS give us an address to write to for station requests or complaints? My wife and I truly enjoy this station, we even enjoy the music they play when showing the weather of the world-haha. To delete a public broadcast station without proper survey of the customer base must be the reason why!
Seems the action of a monopoly run amok. Often the French international news provides better video coverage of our local events than the useless local news that mostly shows its typical "talking heads" and incessant commercials. The Asian news channels give a look into different cultures and indepth coverage of items otherwise overlooked.
Please bring back these channels AOL/Verizon and make your product worth buying.
