Everytime I read BBC I keep thinking about Austin Powers when he sings, "Do the BBC! BBC Once! BBC Twice!"
Thank you for all the feedback folks.

Here on Long Island, I'm glad to see you've added Telemundo's channel 47 in HD, as well as New Jersey Network HD, both of which can be received Over-The-Air with a good antenna. But I'd also like to see FiOS add 2 other channels we can get OTA: New York City's ION affiliate, WPXN 31.1 in HD, as well as Connecticut Public Broadcasting's WEDW, Channel 49, in HD.
As for national networks, I wish FiOS would add BBC America HD, Turner Classic Movies HD, Starz West HD and the reluctant Rainbow networks AMC HD, IFC HD and (if it's even offered in HD) Sundance HD.
Prior to coming over to Verizon, we had Comcast service and they provided WGAL, an NBC affiliate station from Lancaster,Pa. We live about midway between Philadelphia and Lancaster and this station provided excellent regional news coverage as well as terrific weather coverage for this part of the country ... please consider adding them to Verizon's channel lineup.
After reading through the thread I would agree with many of the suggestions, but Sky News definitely got my attention. It would definitely be a good news alternative and a great companion to the BBC news channel we now get. And when it's available HD please.
Good catch simarlow, kudos to you (yes, that was me) ;-)
