Well here I am watching FSC without an HD feed. It kills me each time they flash the "FSC now in HD" across the bottom of the screen. Verizon...please at least acknowledge, in some way, what your plans might be? Where any possible negotiations are with FSC? SOMETHING! Thank you.
I just watched the Tottenham v Aston Villa game on FSC , channel 84 and it "appears" that feed is a combination of SD and HD. It was defintley NOT true HD (i.e. ESPN2's derby this morning, Liverpool v. Everton), but it was better than the normal SD feed. Maybe FIOS received the HD ffed, but broadcast it in SD? Anybody else watch? Bob
If it makes anyone feel any better, Verizon usually stays silent for the most part about what channels they are close to adding. Even @fiostv on Twitter said "cannot confirm or deny" that FSC HD would be added. If there was no plan in place, I think they just wouldn't say anything.
As I found out recently, "grooming" a new channel into the lineup takes a while, so hopefully that's being done now. Verizon doesn't want its competitors to know what channels will be added, but unfortunately, that means we can't find out either.
Just throwing in another vote for FSC HD in time for the Champions League. Seems like a lot of people voting for this, so I feel pretty confident Verizon is going to add it -- especially if Comcast already has it.
Come on Verizon, prove me right! Get FSC HD now!
I'd love to see more channels in HD (BBC America, E, G4 off the top of my head) but Fox Soccer Channel is the only channel that could make me switch providers from Verizon if the competition added the channel and Verizon did not. Add another vote for FSC HD!
