Verizon and TW caved in immediately.


Let me see Dish provide a 150/35 down and uplink. I don't think they can stretch fiber that far.Smiley LOL

For your information, Disney Jr. is not offered in HD by VERIZON FiOS. If Disney Jr was offered in HD me and my six year old would be far less motivated to return to Cablevision. 

 

FiOS has so few HD channels that it simply does not make since to switch from the cable or the satellite providers.  

 

I truly regret signing a two year contract.

DISH Network is primarily a video content provider.  

 

In an effort to maintain its competitive edge, DISH Networt has espoused itself to several broad band data provider's so that a Triple Play package can be supplied to customers demanding exceptional international high definition video content.

 

Among all tetelevision subscriber based video content providers(Cablevision, Dish Network, Comcast, TimeWarner, and etcetera) VERIZON FiOS offers the least high definition channels.

 

I truly regret signing a two year contract!

You might want to actually check your facts first, with regards to Verizon offering the fewest HD channels. They may not have the ones you want - and there are certainly plenty of channels they could add - but they offer more HD than Dish, Comcast, TWC and Cablevision. If you want to peruse the offerings, follow the link:

That is a completely FALSE statement.

Regretfully, a few days subsequent to signing a two year contractual agreement I did take the initiative to educate myself by contrasting VERIZON FiOS' high definition video content offerings.  I have carefully examined my facts!

 

Furthermore, you are absolutely correct; the channels my family does truly cherish (Disney Jr, Nick Jr, Turner Classic Movies and etcetera) are absolutely not offered in HD on the FiOS line up.

 

Standard 4X3 480P video is simply unacceptable when viewing a 4K television.

 

I truly regret signing a two year contract.

Note although probably not the channels you want, 2013 has been a year where FIOS has added a fairly large number of HD channels.

Look, I'm not trying to be a wiseguy, but why didn't you check the channel lineup to make sure it had the HD offerings you wanted before making the switch? (I think that's a fair question, no? 🙂 )
