Fox Soccer Channel has lost the rights to broadcast football (soccer) games from top European leagues La Liga (Spain) and Serie A (Italy). Al Jazeera Sports Network has won the rights to broadcast those games for the 2012-2013 seasons onward. They will broadcast the games on their sports channels beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 which are currently not part of your FiOS channel lineup. 

 

Unless Verizon adds these channels to their FiOS lineup, Verizon customers in North America will be unable to see any games from La Liga and Serie A. The games won't be available online through legal channels either. This means that Verizon customers will have no access to games from such high profile teams such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, etc. 

 

Please add beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 to the FiOS channel lineup.

It's Here! I'm overjoyed and you will be too! beIN sports is here!

FiOS TV customers will find beIN SPORT HD on channel 598 and beIN SPORT en Español HD on channel 1598. beIN SPORT HD is included in the Ultimate HD package and beIN SPORT en Español is included with La Conexion and the Spanish-language TV package.

Why doesn't FIOS offer Fox Soccer Channel and Fox SoccerChannel Plus in HD??

 

Status: Launched
Fox Soccer Channel launches this week for most of our customers. GOL TV is the next HD channel for soccer, but there will be other channels turned on before GOL TV is available.

How about the NASA channel

How about the NASA channel(s). That one is free and you do not have to fight over rights to air it. It has only been asked for like the past three years.

It is in the content queue, but lower priority

Cartoon Network HD, Funimation HD,

Since BBC-HD has already been asked for I'll as for some more. I have the Ultimate HD package and have little interest in sports, yet that seems to be all we're getting as far as new channels these days.

 

Cartoon Network HD has tons of new HD programing, the Brave and the Bold, Sym-Bionic Titan, etc.

 

Since Funimation switched over to HD, FIOS now streams the HD channel downconverted on the SD channel and it looks terrible. The resulting picture is either 4:3 letterboxed, or even worse, for 4:3 programming we have a postage stamp sized picture. It's virtually unwatchable. Please add them as a full HD channel ASAP.

 

Thanks for listening.

Status: Already Exists
Cartoon Network HD already exist. Funimation is Not Likely to return.

HD Channels and improved features?

Right now, FiOS shows actors names that are in the movies, however I think they should add the commentators names that are broadcasting the sports event. Also include the sideline reports names.

 

Another thing is adding more HD channels:

 

  • FiOS1 HD
  • Bloomberg Television HD
  • CBS Sports Network HD
  • CNBC HD
  • CNN Headline News HD
  • CNN International News HD
  • E! HD
  • ESPN CLS HD (ESPN Classic HD)
  • FearNet HD
  • Fuel HD
  • HLN HD (Headlines HD)
  • G4 HD
  • MTV 2 HD
  • MTV Hits HD
  • NECN HD
  • NESN Plus HD
  • Nickelodeon 2 HD
  • Nick Jr. HD
  • SNY HD
  • Style HD
  • TV One HD
THE ONLY WAY THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS IF YOU VOTE!!! SO PLEASE VOTE!!!

also duplicate for several
NBC now owns the rights to the Barclays Premier League (England's top flight and arguably the most competitive league in the world) soccer matches. NBC will be airing ALL the Premier League matches this year across their channels (NBC, NBC Sports Network, NBC Premier League Extra Time and NBC Live Sports Extra). They will be airing multiple games at the same time on TV channel NBC Premier League Extra Time and all games on their NBC Live Sports Extra (an ap).<br><br>We need Verizon Fios to support both channels in order for us users to see all the games. This would be a huge competitive advantage for Fios.<br><br>Season starts August 17 and lasts until May. 388 total games. We need Verizon to sign up for both channels.

You are not alone. Currently, I don't have any information on the addition of these channels. As soon as there is more to share this thread will be updated. Thanks for your interest.

Please Add FXX Channel To Prime HD Tier

Status: Acknowledged
by Rybo85 on ‎03-28-2013 10:42 AM

According to the article below in addition to many other articles out there, Fox is rebranding their Fox Soccer Channel as the FXX channel this fall. They're also going to move some existing shows such as "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" to that channel as well.

 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20130328/us-tv-fx-networks/?utm_hp_ref=green&ir=green

 

Right now the Fox Soccer Channel is not available on the Prime HD tier.

 

When this FXX network is launched, please add it to the Prime HD tier.

Status: Acknowledged

FXX has recently been added, but it is not on the Prime HD Tier. That being said this will be taken to the FiOS programming team.  No promises on this being added to the Prime tier.  Thanks so much for bringing your desires to the table.

I would like to see FiOS TV drop the SD version of any stations that are available in HD. It is a waste of coax bandwidth to have both SD and HD versions of the same station. As for customers that still have SD displays, in my experience I have not had issues viewing the HD channels on an SD display.

The highest volume boxes out there are 2500's... so while I concur.... there are a couple million viewers that wouldn't at this point

The PAC-12 conference (formerly the PAC-10) just announced that they will be launching their own network (similar to the Big Ten network already on Fios) in August of 2012 for the start of the 2012 college football season and will be broadcasting a significant chunk of conference football and men's basketball games on this channel, as well as other sports involving conference members.  FIOS needs to be on the ball on this and be ready to add this in HD as soon as it launches in August 2012.

New DVR with more than two tuners.

Having more storage would be great, but conflicting record times and recording two while watching a third would be good. Provide a good DVR with more than two tuners, and an option for existing customers to upgrade to this DVR. I would pay $20 a moth for this but not the existing HM-DVR.

With the start of the roll out of our next round of set top boxes and DVR's... we are beginning the process of defining the future versions

FIOS just dropped Tennis Channel.  Therefore, I will drop FIOS.  Seems fair.

 

(Yes, I know Verizon and Cablevision and possibly other cable companies have an issue with which packages will cover TC.  I don't care.)

24 Hour Cricket Channel

Status: Acknowledged
by pamu77 ‎11-27-2010 05:50 AM - edited ‎11-27-2010 06:08 AM

Hi, I just got an email from "Willow TV" that they have started a 24 hour cricket channel on Dish Network and Direct TV. This will be the most desirable channel for millions and millions of south east asia cricket fans especially since almost ALL the cricket action around the world is shown on "Willow TV". This includes the "Indian Premier League" played every year and followed by milions. Additionally, the "Cricket World Cup" is coming up in Feb/March 2011 where all the top cricket nations of the world will be participating. Can this channel be added to Verizon Fios line up as a subscription channel or as part of the south indian channels package? Thanks.
