Just added on the main FIOS TV forum, rumor has it that it will start being added the 3rd week of this month.

 

I'll add again, it was a missed opportunity for VZ not to have this live at the time of the channel split.

Rumor (and that's all it was) is that it's supposed to start being added beginning the 3rd week of this month.

 

Personally, I think it was a missed opportunity on VZ's part not to have this live at the time of the channel split, but I understand things happen.

Better get it soon, or I am leaving.  This is one of my 5 or so must have channels.  I feel kind of ripped off to sign up in the fall when they essentially had this channel, only to lose it.  I guess they just count on it being too much of a PITA to switch carriers when they drop a channel someone wants and was paying for.

I just can not understand why Verizon will not communicate with its customers as to when channels will be added.

We have waited for Golf HD to go live since the golf season began.

Do I dare ask if we are going to be seeing the Bob Hope in High Definition? This 5 round event will be on the Golf Channel exclusively.

I agree. One of the main reasons I dropped Cox for Verizon was to get better quality Golf Channel HD. Now all I have is 480i. Sure would be nice if they gave us a date for it to reappear.

I just talked to a Verizon rep about Golf Channel HD. They do not carry it on any of their systems and do not know if they will ever carry it. Sounds like a power play to me since Golf Channel is owned by Comcast. May be a deal breaker for me since Cox in my area does carry Golf Channel HD.

Mole,

Please read the rest of the thread before making silly posts. Golf HD is coming, it will be on Channel 593, and will be included in the next round of channel rollouts. This was set to begin this week, but there have not been any reports of this starting.


As a result, i'm personally not sure of when this will begin - but it is coming.

I hope you are correct. The rep I talked to was not at all optimistic about when or if Golf HD would be offered. I guess they are told not to say anything until a channel is placed in service. It would save a lot of gnashing of teeth if he could have said what you say.
