Do we really need another one of these threads?

I switched to Verizon Fios this past February. I would like to see participation as everyone has different tastes.

chewy is right. someone starts one of these threads every few months. We all wish they had more HD, but we have no control over what is added.

I don't believe this particular channel request is Verizon's fault. Discovery just doesn't have a feed for it yet. I shot an email off to Discovery to find out when they may carry a feed. Quite surprised there isn't an HD feed for it since over 48 million households get it.

Discovery Fit & Health (currently SD channel 161)

HAHHAHAH. And who said FIOS news was the only reason I liked this board? LOL.

And ahhh, yes. Up. I forgot it used to be Gospel Music. I actually think Comcast has that in HD in my area. But alas, i'm not much of a "gospel" person.. except for that 1 I wrote a few thousand years back.

I just wish they would switch all, or at least most, of the channels to H.264. That would free up enough room for any channel they wanted to add.

+1 for American Heroes Channel

+1 for H2 HD

3Net would be nice. I would have def preferred that over ESPN 3D. But I highly doubt that anyone is going to add a 3D channel anymore. Maybe a VOD thing, like HBO and Starz has, but not a linear channel. IMO

H2 does broadcast in HD. Since 2009. We just don't have it, obviously.

You are right WebCobbler, my bad, I missed the H2 listing in the Official AVS National HD Channel Lineup. I will again correct my list.

Thanks,

Not sure what's taking Hallmark HD so long... it is one of the very few ultra basic cable channels missing in HD on Fios.

For me a lot of these would be okay if they just carried the VOD in HD. For example after reading all of the fantastic reviews I tried watching "The Returned" in SD (Sundance OD) but it was pretty much unwatchable. Now it's on Netflix (and it is fantastic).

IIRC Esquire OD is HD.

Fox Sports 2....I think it is partially Fox's fault.....if they would shift a couple of heir major College Football games from FS1 to FS2, The SD feed is terrible...and the soccer and rugby which I would watch in HD goes unwatched becuse the picturre is so bad. The same goes for Fox Sports Deportes.

Turner Classic Movies, Sundance Channel, and Cinemoi.....these primarily movie stations would be even better in HD>
