The Weather Channel Dropped on Verizon FiOS TV

With The Weather Channel you can typically see storms in advance so there’s time to prepare. But that’s not the case with Verizon’s sudden drop of the network. TWC says they were dropped without notice or warning today, after a distribution agreement could not be reached between the two companies.

As a replacement, Verizon is showing Accuweather Network on channels 119 (SD) and 619 (HD). The channel officially launched on Verizon today (after a quiet soft launch earlier this week) , but did not say whether the channel locations were permanent or temporary.

Verizon spokesman Bob Elek stated that the company is “committed to lowering [their] overall content costs now and going forward.”

“Verizon FiOS TV has made it clear that they are no longer interested in negotiating with us to bring the services back,” The Weather Channel stated.

The Weather Channel urges Verizon customers to call Verizon to complain, or switch to another TV provider.

FiOS TV customers have been outspoken about the change. One comment from a guest on The Weather Channel’s KeepTheWeatherChannel.com Web site said, “For my family the Weather Channel is not optional, it has become a necessity. ”
