Re: [HD] NEW HD Channels when ???

Do we really need a massive HD channel addition

Big time yes. I can think of at least a dozen channels they need to add.

If they don't at least add BBCA-HD and Cartoon HD by October I'm heading back to Comcast when my contract is up.

Yep. No Cartoon Network HD or H2 HD is a deal breaker for me; I've had Time Warner Cable's TV service for quite some time now because Verizon is too incompetent to provide the channels I want.

Surely there's not THAT many people subscribing to the premium channels and only watching in SD? They're all distributed natively on the satellite on MPEG-4 anyway. VZ could force everyone with a HBO/Starz/Showtime package to upgrade to 7xxx boxes and dump their SD boxes if they still have them and free up some QAM space by switching to MPEG-4 and killing the SD feeds.
