Re: BBC America HD coming?

said by TitusTroy:

praise the FiOS gods!...the color bars are indeed up on 689 and the Guide now shows the listing for BBC-America HD!!...it's not MPEG 4 right?

I'm happy...hoping to see Cartoon Network HD up next

Personally I hope it is Mpeg4. And that not only all future ones are mpeg4, but that they start to take all those delivered to them as Mpeg4 and give them to us as MPEG4. Yes it means some people needing boxes swapped out, but then no more of this out of qam space for at least a while.

Verizon is eventually going to have to deal with the hassle of swapping out boxes for those that want the new MPEG 4 HD channels so they should just do it now and be done with it...prolonging it isn't going to make it easier...Verizon is so worried about the box swapping that they are delaying the transition...MPEG 4 will help in the long run even if it's a bit painful in the short term

Problem is Verizon is continuing to give them out.
