Provides Accuweather and a Weather App in its place. If you have FIOS, will you get rid of it for a cable provider that has The Weather Channel? Howard related because The Weather Channel is more entertaining than Howard's radio show, and Verizon's move is all about marbles. http://www.app.com/story/money/business/consumer/2015/03/10/verizon-weather-channel/24709999/ Verizon FiOS customers can no longer watch the Weather Channel on their TV. The company dropped Weather Channel and Weather Scan after its agreement to carry the channel expired. "This was not a negotiation dispute, but rather, a business decision the company made,' Verizon said in a statement. "Verizon's agreements to carry The Weather Channel and Weather Scan expired and was not renewed." Weather Channel said it was dropped "without warning." "We were disappointed when, without warning late yesterday, March 9, Verizon FiOS dropped The Weather Channel from their lineup while our companies continued to be in active conversations regarding a contract renewal," the company said. "We urge FiOS customers to contact Verizon and voice their displeasure." Verizon said it has committed to reducing overall content costs in 2015 and beyond. Instead of Weather Channel, Verizon said customers now have AccuWeather Network if they want weather information on their TV. FiOS TV also offers a WeatherBug widget application to offer hyper-local weather, on FiOS TV channel 49. "We understand that some customers will be disappointed. However we believe AccuWeather Network's launch on FiOS TV – a first – meets consumer demand for all-weather news and information that viewers can trust," the company said.
