Verizon TV plans draw objection
Breaking up the cableTV bundle won’t be easy.
ESPN is objecting to how Verizon is giving its FiOS TV customers more choice. In new plans that went into effect Sunday, Verizon made the ESPN and ESPN2 sports channels optional, but ESPN says its contracts with Verizon prohibit the channels from being in a separate sports package.
Verizon Communications Inc. did not respond to requests for comment.
