Re: Cartoon Network HD

Why no IPTV-to-the-set-top yet?

It's been 10 years and most TV providers are still dreaming about it like a far-off concept.

Why channel 787 and not 757 ? 287 is Halogen

The Hub is 259, they gave it 789.

the 2 most requested HD channels added within a 2 month time frame!...amazing!...bad news is this is probably the end until IPTV or MPEG-4?

There shouldn't be any more +500 channel rules. All channels should be mapped together by now. Is FIOS planning this?

Because most last-mile networks don't have the capacity for it. And it isn't all that efficient.

The biggest IPTV implementation, AT&T U-verse, restricts customers to a maximum of 4 simultaneous streams, of which up to 2 may be in HD. Not good for a family of four who all want to watch and record different things.

Verizon's IPTV implementation, used for VOD, suffers from similar issues.

IPTV STBs were just announced by Motorola about a month ago.

This, to me, confirms that what VZ said last year about their smaller STBs that would be wired and wireless, as well as the Main Media Server, that would be the main focal point of the home by transmitting all the channels etc through your home to "every screen." In those 2 videos that were on their Website last Winter.

Possibly VZ was waiting on Motorola for this to happen. So a "Late 2012" launch could happen, as they said. But this is just MHO.

Like the Hybrid QIPxxxx STBs out now, I believe that these new IPTV STBs are called : VIPxxxx

motorola has had the VIP boxes for a while now which uverse has used since the beginning. Verizon uses the QIP which is already got IP capabilities along with QAM. The VIP boxes do not work with Cable QAM/IP hybrid system.

There is another thread on this. I hope they don't do what you're suggesting.

I never said that they did. Do not put words in my mouth.

Reread the post. It is very clear to understand what I was saying.

It would be great to have it in time for the returning series premiers this Saturday.

Me too. YJ more than GL, but I would think GL would benefit more from HD.

Just got off the phone with a Fios agent about a billing matter and decided to ask him if there was any info about Cartoon Network HD. He said it will be activated sometime between 9/24 - 9/28.

LOL....was he offering to sell you magic beans too? In all seriousness, is this much ado about nothing?
