Every Channel Is Now In Widescreen HD
Specialist - Level 1

I am not sure if this is a glitch or if this is what verizon was working on when they said that they were going to make changes to their fios tv but every single channel that is in their lineup is now in HD where i saw those changes go in at 6 pm today east coast time. That includes all of their standard definiton channels and of course their high definition channels whether it is an american channel or an international channel. Another thing that you will notice is that the picture is even more crystal clear with a superb picture there that is as good as what you would see on a big screen in a movie theater with the images a lot bigger than they were before. On cnn sd channel 100 you can not see the left side and the right side at times but that is ok because if you go to cnn hd you will see the entire picture. It does not matter what kind of tv you have but i think that it matters as to what type of set top box it is that you have as to what type of images that you will be seeing on there. Now i hope that verizon is about to do the very same thing with the guide and increase the size of it since many people have said that it is too small for them. Now if only you guys could correct the inaccuracies of the guide where a lot of the schedules that are on there do not match what is actually playing on the channel. Also encore espanol channel 363 and boomerang espanol channel 1724 have english audios when they should be in spanish while channel 461 azteca america along with channel 480 latv claim to have an hd version of them where they have a press the c button for hd where you end up being redirected to telemundo hd channel 512. If the all hd widescreen thing is not a glitch and is a permanent then all i have to say is well done verizon. Now hopefully you can make the other necessary changes to the guide while also adding content on there like sur peru that people have been requesting for 5 years.

I don't think this is a Verizon issue, as the CNN SD channel is cut-off on the left/right sides via Comcast as well.  Not sure what is going on.
