Default FIOS Getting New HD content. 150 HD chanels by end 2008

from dsl

"In the spring of 2008, Verizon will begin expanding its HD lineup as well as the sports and multicultural program offerings on FiOS TV. Verizon initially will double the current number of HD channels, on a market-by-market basis, to more than 60, including additional sports channels. Verizon expects to have more than 150 HD channels by year-end 2008 as it continues to add to its HD lineup and programmers launch new channels.

The company says they'll begin to offer HD VOD before year's end, with 1,000 titles planned for '08. We're guessing that the channel bragging game will quickly become irrelevant in 2008 as all cable, DBS and telcoTV operators ramp up their HD selections. Verizon's in a good position in that the ample bandwidth provided by the network allows them to avoid compromising HD quality via compression."

Since leaving comcast and getting FIOS, my only complaint is the on-demand service. Other than that i love it. I am downloading a file now, 2.2 gigs and it is 65% completed at the 20 min mark. 30 mins to download a 2.2 gig file. I am so glad i left comcast.
