[HD] MLB strike Zone

Any chance FIOS will offer MLB Strike Zone ?

Given the fact that MLB Strike Zone Channel is produced by DirecTV, chances of Verizon offering it on FiOS are quite slim.

Time Warner Cable, Bright House Network, DirecTV and Dish Network. All are offering it.

They better not add it before any other channels waiting in the que.
A channel that broadcasts two days a week is useless. Just look at the HD space being wasted by ESPN Buzzer Beater/Goal Line that will have no programming till August 30th.

Agreed. Even as a baseball fan, this channel seems utterly useless.

They should just have 1 channel for Red Zone/ ESPN Buzzer Beater Goal line.

ESPN Buzzer Wed/Sat
NFL RedZone Sunday

I'd rather see Cartoon Network HD or BBC-A HD

There's a web version similar to MLB Strike Zone called Full Count.

I watch MLB all the time, but I prefer MLB Network. I like how they look in from the studio while the guys comment on it. If you want to see more games, subscribe to MLB.TV or Extra Innings. They really need to stop with the sports programming. Cable prices have skyrocketed and the main reason is sports programming, particularly ESPN. Enough already.

That's because Time Warner and BrightHouse had an excellent plan laid out for HD. That's why they now have 197 HD channels (compared to our 130 something).

So, for all those that keep thinking we're only missing a "handful" of channels, think again.

we're missing more then a handful but it should never be about reaching some artificial number just for the sake of having the most HD channels...if FiOS could deliver those channels in native MPEG-4/MPEG-2 and with high bit rates then it would be ideal...if not, what's the point?

and we do have most of the 'important' HD channels...secondary HD channels that no one watches or have very little actual HD content serve no purpose other then to artificially inflate numbers

Maybe you should take your business to them.

First of all, I'd never live in NY, and 2nd, no desire to live in Florida.
