I know this topic has been discussed before, but I feel like it needs to be brought up again and again until Fios finally does something about it.. Why is there still no TCM in HD? Maybe you think SD is good enough because the majority of the movies are in black and white. But it’s not good enough! More and more classics are being remastered in HD and we want to get to see those movies in the proper format... also, The SD channels do not fit the new TV screens properly and if we had access to TCM HD, it would remedy that... I doubt anything will be done, considering that people have been asking gor this for years, but I truly hope it does before I cancel my service...
I agree! Turner Classic Movies also shows wonderful documentaries that have been produced in recent years and obviously look much better shown in HD.
I have FIOS for phone and Internet but keep Spectrum for Cable TV because it shows TCM in HD. I'm sure Verizon has cost me money by keeping me from triple-play pricing deals and that is infuriating. But TCM means so much to me that I'm willing to pay the extra $$.
I've read complaints about this going back years and have yet to see a response from Verizon. The company just doesn't care about its customers.
It's infuriating for sure with the monthly bills we pay. If you don't care about recording stuff on TCM, you might try my solution which is to watch the movies on the TCM app through Apple TV (I assume Roku, etc will work as well) You can watch live in HD, and of course "most" of the movies are made available on the app for a limited time after the original run date (usually a minimum of a week, some longer). I can't stand viewing it in SD so this has worked well for me.
