How much HD does Verizon FiOS Have?
« Reply #7 on: April 19, 2009, 12:28:00 PM »
I think, this means when all areas finally get those 30 High Definition Channels, Cablevision will have 102 HD channels.

How many does Verizon FiOS have?  Is it less, does it tie, or does Cablevision beat them by one or two channels.  I know they have at least 100 HD channels.

Yeah that's the correct count of what they've announced, that includes ABC Live Well HD which is being added next week.  Although from what I've read, users with a QAM tuner are getting TelemundoHD already, but it's not mapped to a channel if you have a digital box.  So that'd make 103.  ION-HD should be going live soon and CV said they'd carry that at launch as well, so we'll be at or over 104 by the time these new 30 are added for everyone.

Now they can say over 100 HD channels!
Now they need to improve PQ.

I look forward to this war.  Finally competition will get interesting between Cablevision and Verizon FiOS.

I would like to see HDNet, HDNet Movies and ESPNews all in HD.  I'm Sure ESPNews will be in the next patch, along with other ABC Channels.

But it sounds like all the Premium channels, and the 'major' channels will be on CV in HD.

Woo Hoo.

I guess we will be getting the SD channels that we don't have too, Crime and Investigation and Starz Comedy. Does anyone know where they are going to place these.
