Advertisements Starting Thursday, the following channels' programs are showing up copy protected on Frontier (previously Verizon Fios) in the Dallas area: 550 - USA (NBCU) 552 - TBS (Time Warner) 568 - WGN (Tribune) 680 - SyFy (NBCU) 685 - Bravo (NBCU) 689 - BBC America (AMC) 690 - Comedy Central (Viacom) 699 - Freeform (Disney) 715 - MTV Live (Viacom) 734 - IFC (AMC) Previously the only channels protected were FX and some other Fox properties. The list above is probably incomplete, I only listed channels for which I have recordings. I was wondering if others are seeing this on Frontier or Verizon in Dallas or other cities? The most troubling thing about this is (as you can see from the list) there isn't just one company being blocked, this look like an almost blanket block of basic & extended tier channels. But some channels still show unprotected (Discovery, Cartoon Network, TruTV).
