Wow, does that article basically say that Verizon hasn't gotten off it's rear end to set up the feed?

Thats great and all. But here in VHO7, we do not get the SD channel. So we won't get the HD, then.

[HD] TCN in HD - Finally!

When I first glanced at the header, Oh great we've finally getting TCM HD! And then the disappointment again, another sports channel, no TCM, H2, etc. Do I need to go on. I realize sports has to be added, but sports channels eventually will pushup the total bill more than entrainment channels.

Enough said, I know a lot would not agree with my opinion and it's just that...my opinion. No need to reply.

I think the reason they haven't added it until now is because of parts of NJ. Since they get both NY and Philly locals, Verizon has to reserve a good deal of QAM space for locals (the amount the allocate has to line up with the largest market - largest as a measure of number of locals/RSNs in that market).

That describes my area, which is the Mercer County part of VHO8. I assume that we'll be getting TCN HD along with the rest of VHO8 but that remains to be seen.

I've always thought it was kind of unfair to the Philly-based sports fans in my area that we got YES, SNY and the major two MSG stations in HD while for them it was only Comcast SportsNet in HD. We are, after all, within the Philadelphia DMA.

Steely-
Thank you for at least admitting the truth! LOL.

Yes - it has been interesting, to say the least. The NY demo gets 72 local sports channels in HD, but as you mentioned - Philly has always been shut out b/c of Mercer County. We don't even get MASN2 in HD in Delaware - which is surprising given the fan base of the Nats and O's here. Baby steps!

THAT my friend, was sarcasm. 72, 8, 6 - it's still more than 1.

Silly me. I thought it was just a pre-caffeine early morning typo. I've been guilty of quite a few of those!

BTW, now that TCN HD is officially in the queue, expect Mercer subs to resume their bitching about the lack of an HD feed for MSG2 or MSGPlus2.

They can rejoice UNTIL they see the regional Sports fee go up, which is exactly what will happen. Even as a Phillies fan I have had enough and would rather NOT see my bill go up even higher.

I understand your concern, but assuming Vz will add TCN to HD, I would absolutely have no need for any other SD channels. At some point Vz should then offer a less costly "HD Only" option, because I never watch SD, other than TCN.

Since we have the SD here in VHO 14, I can only hope we see the HD as well.

Re: [HD] TCN in HD - Finally Coming to VHO8!

This is better news than no news on TCN HD but they of course use very vague wording such as "sometime in the near future" and "that timetable as yet to be finalized."

VZ said similar things about the VMS back in Dec 2011 and we just recently saw it launched...

Back to topic please. Topic is about TCN not any other channel.
