So this means VZ can add one HD and four SD Channel's. Can VZ take 3 or 4 SD and bond them together to Create 1 or 2 HD Channel's ?

Blackbelt and Blue Highways were entirely useless. Youtoo was trying to be social media, but it's a mess. MAV just never got off the ground. I'm surprised at their removal though, because I figured Verizon was getting them for almost free.

Unfortunately, this would open only 1 HD channel. 4 SD's is about half of 1 HD. So Verizon would have to shift other SD's around to free that area.

Good riddance to all of these. Just a waste of space. Youtoo used to be decent when they were still ALN.

Too bad the .TV channels aren't on this list.

If they do add something I hope they start to add mainstream HD channels using MPEG4.

Got the email in Texas today. If it means they add HD I am fine with it but maybe they are just trying to collect enough to pay AMC?

Wow, now they are removing some of the local plus channels too?
Edit: I see they are all from the same station, so maybe it was a station decision?

Matcarl, you have a good point---I didn't know if that's VZ or WYBE decision. I'll try to find out from WYBE.

[WYBE also broadcasts MiND TV on broadcast channel 66.4 in NYC area. Don't know whether FiOS also carries that up there?]

Thanks,

It says Halogen will be removed from Extreme. It's probably only in Ultimate now.

Why would they be dropping channels ? To add just 1 HD channel in its place? Idk.

Are these channels at the very end of viewership, so it would make sense to remove these channels just to add one other in HD ( like H2 HD ) ? Idk.

H2 is after all , free to providers that have The History Channel, so adding it in HD makes total sense to me bc they have native HD programming on H2 now anyway.

I got off track a bit, sorry. So what will happen after they remove these channels? Addition to the HD lineup is always welcome. I guess we will just have to be patient and wait to find out. Hopefully we won't have to wait that long to find out, though.

+1 for H2 HD. H2 is what the History channel use to be before they started showing all the reality shows.....

Amen to that. Here's to H2 in HD for the win !

They're removing them most likely because Verizon decided not to renew their agreements. Most of those have been on the service for many years, and while they came cheap, VZ knows the ratings and figures even 50 cents a subscriber or whatever it is, is too much for these.

Who ever watched Youtoo? AFAIC, Verizon needs to do some serious pruning of these crap channels.

The tricky thing with "crap" channels is that they are sometimes owned by larger networks that require the providers to carry these other networks as part of a package deal. "You want Discovery Channel"? "Well then you have to carry I.D. too". Nothing against that channel, just making a point.

Verizon to drop Youtoo TV from FiOS TV lineup

Telco also moving Halogen TV to Ultimate HD package

November 30, 2012 | By Steve Donohue

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) began informing its FiOS TV subscribers Thursday that it will drop Youtoo TV from its channel lineup on Dec. 31.

Formerly known as American Life TV, GoodLife TV Network and Nostalgia Channel, the network was relaunched last year as Youtoo TV. Youtoo calls itself the first social TV network, and it relies on feedback from viewers to pick its programming schedule. It struck a production deal last year with Mark Burnett, the reality show producer who created hit CBS series Survivor.

Verizon also told FiOS TV subscribers in an email notice that it will move Halogen TV from its 290-channel Extreme HD package to its more expensive Ultimate HD package, which contains 385 channels. Halogen, which is owned by The Inspiration Networks, bills itself as "the socially-conscious entertainment network." Its schedule ranges from repeats of The Biggest Loser to Surf Patrol.

Verizon said it will soon add new networks to the FiOS lineup. "These changes help enable us to add new content that our customers have been asking for, and we'll be announcing additions to the lineup soon," Verizon spokeswoman Heather Wilner told FierceCable Friday.

Not sure what's out there beyond beIN Sports and PAC-12? Obviously they all wouldn't be added in HD.

Good point, what channels are left that they don't carry that people want?
