HBO Movies requires HD TV?
Rosa
Newbie

I just added HBO & Cinamax to my Fios TV and I can not watch any movies on HBO because it states that HD TV & HD Digital Box required to view program. What does this mean? As of January 1st, 2010 you are required to have or purchase a HD TV and upgrade your FIOS digital box to watch HBO? Anybody else having this problem???

Rosa,

Are you sure you're trying to watch the correct channels? If you're using an SD box then HBO/Cinemax will be the 400-431 channel range. You need an HD box to watch the HD channels which are 899-931. If you try to access channels 899-931 with an SD box you get the message you descrbed.

Also if you are looking at HBO VOD you need to make sure you are not in the HD directory.
