CSN+ in Howard County, MD. We used to get it, not sure why we don't anymore. During the winter there are lots of conflicts between Wizards, Caps and Terps game and one always gets sent to this channel.
Please add NECN HD (New England Cable News). The only reason I have a HD receiver in my kitchen is to watch NECN, and they have just started to broadcast in HD.
I think I join a lot of customers when I share my frustration at the pace at which HD channels are being added.
The following channels are (to the best of my knowledge) already offered in HD and should be added ASAP to the FIOS lineup:
CBS College Sports-HD
Comcast Sportsnet + HD (When sporting events conflict they are relegated to Channel 1--a terrible picture)
Also--we live in the Fredericksburg, VA area--midway between DC and Richmond. Your competitor in the area (Comcast) offers network feeds for both the DC and Richmond stations--something Fios should think about adding.
CSN+ is currently not offered in HD. Those of us in the CSN footprint who do not have access to FiOS1 (most of us in the region) cannot see the CSN+ feed at all. The part-time, grainy feed is what Comcast Sportsnet believes is an acceptable picture. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
**btw- the outside vendor that produces and puts together FiOS1 gets the CSN+ and MASN2 feeds, then incorporates the games into the channel.
Some good news to report. The FCC has just ruled in favor of FiOS (and other carriers) against Cablevision regarding the blocking of some sports programming in HD. (Which was why Verizon was unable to carry MSG-HD, etc.) So for those who want to see teams like the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils...that may soon be possible in HD. Hopefully, this ruling also applies to MSNBC-HD. No time frame yet as to when viewers will actually be able to see them added (I'm sure carriage-agreements would still have to be dealt with), but it is good to know that progress has been made. It is now less a matter of "if" and more a matter of "when."
I also would love GAME HD2/NHL Center Ice HD2.
Incidently, this wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Verizon_FiOS_channels#Channels_1000-1799) indicates that 1001 is now HDPPV and Center Ice HD2 and MLB Extra Innings HD2, but that clearly isn't the case for me as nothing is currently playing on 1001 and the Red Wings v Wild are supposed to be on Game HD2. Maybe being rolled out in some areas already and coming nationwide soon?
