Verizon Online with MSN Premium: Cobranded Experience No Longer Available On March 1, 2012, Verizon and Microsoft will no longer support the Verizon with MSN Premium cobranded experience. This means your Verizon Broadband access service will no longer include MSN Premium software. (See below to learn about options Microsoft is independently making available related to those services.) Effective 3/1/2012, the cobranded start page found at verizon.msn.com will be redirected to a Verizon web page to help update your browser.
How will my Verizon with MSN Premium service change?
This change will not impact your Verizon Internet connection, service plan, price, or your verizon.net email account. However, there may be changes to your msn.com or hotmail.com email account and / or other Microsoft services including Premium software (see link below to Microsoft FAQ).
