Changing local Station to HD

Message 1 of 2

I really want to thank Verizon for moving one of our local public TV stations (MPT 2)to an HD channel ( which requires an HD set box at an additional cost....duhhh) and replacing it with a totally worthless asian news I give a hoot about asian news?????  Why can't this be on an HD channel????  Verizon continues to move channels to locations that benefit them the most........not the consumer.  And for the  internet service....once advertised to be the you must pay extra to get what they use to advertise as the best!  I'm seriously considering changing to Xfinity, although I am sure that they do the same to their loyal customers......always offering deals to first time buyers and nothing for their long-term customers.  However, they do continue to offer the Weather Channel.

A quick Google shows it was actually mpt that made the change.

They are now carrying nhk as a sub channel.

And probably requested FiOS and others carry it and move create to HD.
