Re: Video quality has been suffering lately too.

All the lobbying for little-watched fringe channels has caused Verizon to compress some channels to fit more.

Perhaps you missed my link to the facts. You may avail yourself of it above.

Well, I could link you to a page that said 2+2 = 4, it would have about the same relevance. Where exactly did Verizon say or imply that adding any of these would impact "quality"?

Regardless, if we didn't have a lot of crap channels already (.TV, sports, MTV, etc.) the additional, worthwhile channels requested would have no impact on quality.

I am also experiencing macroblocking and other issues on a number of channels (the Rainbow ones, of course, but also others like Discovery, ESPN, etc.). It just goes to show that FIOS can have all the potential for quality in the world but if the source material s***s then they'll look just like Cablevision, TWC, etc.

Of course they're not going to say that, but they're sure not leaning on video quality in their advertising as heavily as they had been, either.

2+2 does, indeed, equal 4, and video quality has indeed started to suffer when the statmuxing began to take place.

It's nothing to get defensive over, just something to monitor.

I noticed that as well...they used to always advertise about the best picture quality etc but now they are focusing on the fiber optic network and internet speeds
