HLN HD

Please add HLN to the HD line-up. HLN news is on channel 101 and the unused channel 601 is an avaliable channel for HD programming. As a point of interest, this news program has been available on Comcast for sometime now.

C'mon Verizon DC met....HLN in HD.  Really can't believe it's not already available...it's a staple channel!

It seems painfully obvious that channel 601 should display HLN HD.  What's the deal?

Until they get the MPEG-4 STB replacements all straightened out they are really tight on space and will have trouble adding new HD channels.  Even then I doubt HLN HD would be in the first group to add as they probably would want to add Mpeg-4 channels and will have not replaced all the stb for those who get HLN in SD.

It is one of the channels that verizon will be adding in the next few months once they settle their other tv issues. Right now channel 601 is currently being occupied by yet another one of those upgrade to fios quantam promotional spots that are spread out all over the guide. HLN used to be known as a headline news network.

It has been a long time since the previous post hoping for HLN HD to become available. What has happened? When will it become available? It is a real discrace and lack of consideration for subscribers that FIOS is not doing anything about it.

I imagine Everyone gave up on this. To date, in February 2017, HLN is not available in HD.

I thought that it used to be in HD but then disappeared. There are a few channels that are like this.

I just saw a Fios commercial that showed HLN in widescreen (not 480i). Would that be false advertising by Verizon? It's 2018 I don't understand why Verizon isn't providing the best HD service. I think the new Altice One box is going to give them some trouble. Verizon seems to keep taking away (Bloomberg, Al-Jazeera TWC) rather than adding (Accu-weather).  Accu Weather is a terrible TV station - a good alternative to TWC but NOT a replacement. I don't care about numbers and how many people watch. There are a bunch of channels that I never watch that I can't get removed for a better price.

I was just wondering if HLN HD is coming soon or if the official channel listings on the Verizon FIOS are misleading. A friend of mine is looking into signing up for FIOS once his Comcast contract is up in a few months and he asked me about HLN HD and I told him that we don't get it despite it being listed in the channel line-up.

Any clarification on this would be helpful.

Reportedly being added "Soon".  I think some have said its in the guide at 601, but currently 601 is a quantum upgrade hard sell in my area.

Unless you have (or plan on getting) the Ultimate HD Package, don't hold your breath. Seems any new HD channels (including AMERICA 1 NEWS and AL-JAZEERA NEWS) are on the Ultimate package only.

Not completely true.  Some were just added that are in other packages.

And Justin earlier specifically mentioned Al-Jazeera being available in Extreme.

Oh, it's absolutely true...I HAVE Extreme and it is NOT available. Nor is HLN HD, AMERICA 1 HD and SONY MOVIE CHANNEL HD. They are listed but when trying to access, it states "Not subscribed."

I HAVE Extreme and it IS available. So there..... Smiley Very Happy I do agree about the other channels, but I most certainly do have Al Jazeera in HD in Extreme, maybe it is a Verizon mistake I don't know, but I assure you I have been watching it for the last several weeks in HD.
