September 8, 2010 at 4:15 AM (PT)
MTV NETWORKS' URGE music channels will be dropped on VERIZON's FiOS TV. The channels will live on for AT&T's U-VERSE TV customers. MULTICHANNEL.COM reports "VERIZON alerted FiOS TV subscribers late this week to the change in messages indicating the channels would be removed over the next five days, 'due to the provider's decision to discontinue the service.'"
"VERIZON FiOS TV's authorization to distribute URGE RADIO expired with our recent renewal, and MTVN elected not to renew FiOS TV's distribution of URGE RADIO under our new carriage agreement," MTVN said in a statement.
