Reportedly, Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) may stop broadcasting channels owned by Hearst Television next year as the company has been asking for higher rates to broadcast its channels on Verizon’s fiber-optic networks.
Verizon informed that Hearst TV, the owner of channels like WBAL-NBC in Baltimore and WGAL-NBC in Harrisburg, is demanding “unreasonably large” rate increases that would lead to an increase in costs for Verizon FIOS customers.
If the predicament continues, then from January 1, FIOS customers in select markets may not be able to watch their favorite programming, including local news, and other notable entertainment.
