I am getting tired of having to go out and find a torrent of the BBCA shows in HD. I spent the money to upgrade all of my systems and in order to watch these shows in HD I have to download them and connect my laptop to the TV. Why am I even spending the money for FIOS? I have been promised many things over the last 3 years from Verizon that have never happened.  The only thing I really enjoy about fios is the faster internet speeds. I may have to look at switching to something else soon. Not sure what contract I currently have or how long is left on it. Can not find that info anyplace on Verizon or even when I have asked a rep after being on the phone on hold for an hour plus.

A little off topic here, but I thought I would share this since you mentioned your concern about commitments.

 

Go to https://www22.verizon.com/myverizon/

 

Log into My Verizon and select the my services tab. It will show your commitment expiration date. This is something I and many others had complained about. My commitment expired in November but I am in my second year of my pricing agreement. If the price goes up, I will have to pay the higher price at the end of my second year. I have been considering locking it in for another term, but have been looking at my budget. I can't see a better deal anywhere else, and hated rain fade from the dish.

 

I hope this information helps you, because the expiration date for your commitment is out there. I know, because I among others fought for it. It should be available on all accounts. Since around the end of June 2009.

Ok I found it, thanks. And was I surprised to see mine is up this month. I have been doing some shopping and it looks like they are all pretty high on the prices, at least for the area that I am in. I'll keep looking around though.

If your commitment is up, and you have the two year price deal, you should not have to do anything to keep your current service and pricing. Like I said mine expired in November, and I will keep the same service, and price until next November. It gives you time to think about it. But remember if the price goes up during the second year, you will have to pay the higher price if you change your bundle. Also if the price goes down, you can get a better deal. It makes since to leave it as is, unless you want something changed. So for me it makes since to leave things as is unless I wanted the 25/15 vs the 20/5 I have now. Looking at DTV, Vonage, and FIOS Internet, and it is still cheaper for me to keep it all under Verizon. It's just the question of your satisfation with the services. I hate Comcast. I have been happy with FIOS, but all services providers could improve something.

I cast my vote for BBC America HD as well. Trying to watch the new Doctor Who episodes is killing me. "The End Of Time" was great, but with the channel now being offered in HD, help us out Verizon. Coming over from Cablevision where they don't even have BBC America, I am happy to at least have the channel now that I switched to FiOS a month ago. :-)

+1 for BBCA-HD.  Unlike other channels that people are requesting that have next-to-no HD material (TCM-HD, G4-HD, etc), this channel actually has HD programming!

Yes.  I loved Skins season 3 on BBC America HD on cable, I really hope FiOS picks BBC America HD in time for season 4!

+1 for BBC in HD from a Top Gear lover! Plus the 6 nations would be sweet in HD.
