I know our house would love Cartoon Network and G4 - and can do without Pets.TV et al.

Oh most def... there are also 3D and SD channels coming.  You should see a steady addition of channels over the rest of the year... just in the last 1-2 months we have added ESPN 3D, TruTV HD, BET HD, FSC HD... with more to come.... including the ones you referenced.

You are going to add SD channels?  Personally, I would vote for no additional SD at all.

Well... the SD channels are primarily sourced from international markets... a decent chunk of the rest of the world hasn't really made the leap to HD quite yet... there are lots of requests in the Idea Exchange for channels from South America, Asia and Europe.

How about the "HD Channel Vote Board" that you said you would look into here http://forums.verizon.com/t5/Share-Your-Ideas-with-Verizon/HD-Programming-or-Channel-Vote-Board/idi-..., what's the status on that?

I would have loved to pick up the Spanish language package, at an even much higher cost that the $11.95 you now charge. If you would have just added Peruvian channels. Now I think you would have to pay my DTV ETF. I have a DTV dish on my fince and pay them $29 a month for trash I don't want. Only because I could not get any channels from Peru.

Go Joe Go. Now making DTV go will be harder. Having two providers really stinks. Not to mention most of 165 SD channels do not even get seen. Only a handfull of Spanish channels get watched. What a waist. I could sure have invested that $30 in Verizon, and kept my Ultimate.
