how long till JeepMatt comes running back to FiOS?...didn't he say that there would be no more new HD additions this year?

Come on, we all know when Jeep will be back. Once his contract is up he will be back for the new-user discounts....

HAHHAHA - you guys..... I knew there'd be at least 1 or 2 adds in the Olympic channel spots that they had to hoard.

Glad they're giving you all BBC America. The PQ of the HD channel on Comcast does look fantastic. But, since I started watching it more - I swear, other than the random 1st run shows at night - they show the same 12 episodes of Kitchen Nightmares every day!

I'm a little bit surprised BBCA HD is being launched on FiOS before Cartoon Network HD.

That's just purely based on the fact that Cartoon Network HD is the only network that every other major TV provider carries except FiOS. BBCA HD is on all major TV providers except for DirecTV, U-Verse, and FiOS.

Directv has BBCA HD, launched today with Nat Geo Wild HD & Disney Jr HD, FYI! U-Verse looks like the last one with no carriage agreement.

Ch 689 is on with color bars on VHO7.
When each VHO has Ch689 with color bars is BBCA HD going to be turned on for all of them a once or is it still going to be one VHO per day?

praise the FiOS gods!...the color bars are indeed up on 689 and the Guide now shows the listing for BBC-America HD!!...it's not MPEG 4 right?

I'm happy...hoping to see Cartoon Network HD up next

Personally I hope it is Mpeg4. And that not only all future ones are mpeg4, but that they start to take all those delivered to them as Mpeg4 and give them to us as MPEG4. Yes it means some people needing boxes swapped out, but then no more of this out of qam space for at least a while.

Verizon is eventually going to have to deal with the hassle of swapping out boxes for those that want the new MPEG 4 HD channels so they should just do it now and be done with it...prolonging it isn't going to make it easier...Verizon is so worried about the box swapping that they are delaying the transition...MPEG 4 will help in the long run even if it's a bit painful in the short term

hindsight is always 20/20...so after they start rolling out new channels you now say that you knew this all along?...seems like a recurring pattern...your last statement back in early July was "it's going to be status quo for quite some time w/ FIOS TV"

Problem is Verizon is continuing to give them out.

Nothing here in VHO4. Even took guide out to the end to update. And tried to go to channel directly. No joy.

At least my TiVos are showing the guide data for BBCA-HD already. Although I'm not seeing anything on the channel yet.

And I also won't need to purchase the Doctor Who episodes anymore from VUDU and/or Amazon.

BBCA HD is on for VHO7.
When was the last time a channel or channels were added to multiple VHOs at the same time?

BBC HD is live in VHO 4.

The FiOS STB sees it but no show guide yet.

The Ceton InfiniTV card/Windows Media Center doesn't see it at all yet.

Zap2It has it in their listings, so I expect to see it on my Ceton card soon!

Happy days are here again! LOL

Yes, the VOD Folder will be good. I am sure it will appear within the next couple days. (I hope)

I am watching Gangs of New York as well. I love how BBC America is 1080, and not 720. You can def tell the difference between the two.

Yes, BBC America HD, a long time coming but it's here!!! As webcobbler said, you can really see the different in picture quality between the two feeds.
This a good entertainment add. A four smile rating!
