HBO HD already exists as a channel (actually multiple channels).  If you mean HBO HD VOD, that is not what this thread is about.

I would also like to see, at some point, Verizon end their relationship with inDemand for providing the season packages and go to more of a direcTV model (unless inDemand will be adding HD). Fox Sports Net, the regional carrier for MOST teams, is soon to be 100% HD and I would like to watch the out of maket games in HD. I hate being limited to one at a time.

 

Other Channels:

 

MSNBC HD

NASA TV

G4 TV

AMC HD

IFC HD

TMC HD

NBA TV HD

Hi:

 

As I am a subscriber in NY (on Long Island), my list includes some channels blocked by Cablevision's ridiculous agreements but here goes:

 

MSNBC HD (Cablevision blocked)

BBC America HD

NBA HD (promised when I subscribed)

C&I HD (promised when I subscribed)

MSG HD and MSG+ HD (Cablevision)

AMC HD (Cablevision)

E! HD

Turner Classic HD

Cartoon HD

IFC HD (Cablevision)

Fuse HD (Cablevision?)

G4 HD

CBS College HD

Fuel HD

Style HD

Headline News HD

Investigation Discovery HD (TW Cable is adding)

TruTv HD

ION HD

Starz West HD 

FIOS 1 Long Island recently launched - needs to be in HD

NASA Select (is it available in HD?) 

 

Also, I have a suggestion not previously posted - while I was with Cablevision, they had a local local forecast for the NY Metro area on the HD channel which FIOS doesn't carry but should. The national view on the locals on the 8's is not cutting it and a better service is available. 

 

Thanks for allowing comments.

1. NASA-TV - some programming is offered in HD.  Offer that channel with HD and you will have something none of your competitors have.  Even when the shuttle goes away, we'll still have lots to see with some of the upcoming probes to Mars and the development of the next generation of manned US vehicles.

2. CBS College Sports HD - so glad you got this in SD since many of my college's games are on this channel.   HD would be a nice plus.

3. BBC America HD

4. Turner Classic Movies HD - great channel.  Would love to see it in HD.

5. AMC HD - used to be great, but still offers a lot of good movies in between all the commericals.

6. RTV - I know Retro TV is primarily for broadcast stations, but I think some cable systems offer it to.  The programming looks pretty good to me.

7. Cartoon Network HD

8. MSBNC-HD - don't really watch it all that often, but they've completely reconfigured their on air look for HD making it hard to watch in SD.

9. Ion HD locals - I know my local Ion station broadcasts in HD.  I'd love to have it on Fios.  They offer infomercials during the day, but they have some pretty good movies at night in HD. (Hunt For Red October looked real good)

10. NBA-TV (both SD and HD) - seems like this should have been on Fios long ago.  We have all the other major sports network owned channels, why not this one?

I just wish that Verizon would give me the same local channels that I used to receive back when I had a regular TV antenna on my roof.  If I am located in the 'green' reception zone per the FCC map then I should get that channel delivered to me whether I use Verizon or any other carrier.  In my case, that means that in central New Jersey we should get the local Philadelphia channels that I got before I switched to Verizon.  There is no wall between where the so-called New York market ends and the Philadelphia market begins - it just isn't than black-and-white.  It amazes me that I get WGN (Chicago) and TBS (Atlanta) while, despite being 20 minutes (really - just 20 minutes driving at legal speed) from the legal border of Philadelphia but a full hour from New York - that you have decided that central New Jersey is exclusively a New York market.  Please note that your competitor - Comcast - does provide this area with BOTH NY and Philly channels.  What I have now is no fun as a Phillies / Eagles / Flyers fan -  and as you might imagine - switching allegance to a NY team is not an option.
