When will the Coming Soon HD channels go live?   Like Encore HD etc.   The guide has said coming soon for about 3 months now.

Well, it may depend on where you are. I have Encore HD here in North Texas, along with Chiller, and CBS Sports, all of which are supposedly new, plus I may have others, I haven't bothered to look.

 

Here is a link to a bunch of press releases about new channel availability, maybe one applies to you:

I'm in North New Jersey and I don't see any press releases from that link that pertain to my area.  Perhaps one of the Verizon employees who monitor these forums could give a definitive answer?

I will check on that Chrisdecm Also That news release is a bit Vague on the channels coming unless I didn't read it well but I'll see if I can post the actual channels Monday. I may not be able to as they haven't technically been released yet.

 

The Answer is always no unless you ask!

 

 

 

Lol no I didn't read well enough

 

The 13 new channels provide subscribers in the North Texas area more movie and sports content, with channels such as Encore HD, which offers a great selection of movie choices; Chiller, a 24-hour channel devoted to suspense and horror movies; and sports channels, including CBS College Sports Network. Customers also have access to the Home Shopping Network in HD and Blue Highway TV, a channel highlighting music, neighborhoods, art, festivals and celebrations that define American culture.

I can confirm that the CBS CSN feed is live in N. Texas.  Installed M cards this am for two new TiVo units and found it to be active.  I don't know that I had noticed it previously when the FiOS DVR was attached.  I haven't tried the other channels yet.

I've noticed that some, but not all, of the new channel offerings are available for viewing if you punch in the channel number directly on the remote. The guide has not yet been updated in VHO6 to reflect the new channels.

I noticed that VHO3 (Southern California) received Encore HD (850), HSN HD (651), HBO East HD (899), and Cinemax East HD (920)  yesterday.

 

But no Golf HD this morning. Smiley Sad
