Why doesn't Verizon add OWN HD? »www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/o···n-272979
quote:So they can carry this network for free and Verizon still doesn't add it? What kind of business sense does that make?
Today, major service providers including Comcast pay nothing for OWN, which is not unusual for a network with no ratings history. (Comcast declined comment.)
We just saw that they can add new HD channels overnight with MSG HD and MSG+ HD popping up randomly last night.
I am getting so tired of this no new HD situation going on with FiOS TV. It seems like no one except for sports whiners can get Verizon to add some new HD channels. And you better believe Cablevision charges Verizon a pretty penny to carry MSG HD.
Other HD channels Verizon can carry for NO CHARGE include NASA TV HD and Pentagon Channel HD.
