We knew it would be. As that poster said here a few months ago, Verizon is not putting any mainstream channel on MPEG-4 yet. They dug their own grave with the old boxes.

H.264 was also known as AVC. H.xxx is the ITU-T name and AVC, HEVC, etc. is the MPEG name. It's just like IEEE 1394\Firewire\iLink
