I can tell you there are no immediate plans to add BBC HD. Whoever that agent was is completely wrong.

Unfortunately, that is really BAD news!!!!!! Smiley Sad

Time Warner Cable launched BBC America HD in NYC this past week, yet FiOS isn't even considering adding it, when there is no exclusivity agreement like MSNBC...

I live and breath BBC America, and it looks terrible on my HDTV in regular definition, my sister in NY has it on Time Warner and obviously the HD makes a huge difference, for the love of god, FIOS is supposed to be cutting edge, no?


BBC America HD is a must if verizon expects to keep me as a customer, I pay an arm and a leg for all the HD channels on FIOS and I expect new channels to be added as they become available, especially important ones like BBC America.

No BBC-HD here in Richmond, VA yet.  I am hoping for Top Gear HD asap!  The quality of the photography is perhaps the strongest element of that show and apparently household viewers here think their photography is on par with the Art Wolfe specials on PBS-HD (whose sole focus is excellent photography).

Anyone have ideas on how we can more effectively voice our desire to have BBC-A in HD? I admit it's less important to me at this very moment but I sure would like to see the Doctor Who specials later in the year in HD. Please, HD before David Tennant leaves the show! Pretty please!

IT turns out my agent led me astray. I signed up for the next tier,as I was told BBC/America/HD should be available by the end of Month.That was July.

That , did not happen, and I am as disappointed.,Especially since the new yr. of Robin Hood starts this week-end., as all of

I just spoke to someone today and they said they don't have it yet.


I'm really disappointed. I love BBC America.

I just hope Verizon picks this up before the next Doctor Who special in November.


I wonder if they have the Sarah Jane Adventures, or does Sci-Fi still have them, as that starts airing in England Tomorrow, and next week has an appearance by the Doctor.
