    verizon fios in nyc

    Granted - poorly worded. My point is you can argue their position is even weaker - as DirectTV is a competitior of Cablevision (apparently one they're not as concerned about) and they have provided them the channel. If they had never provided the channel to the "marketplace" (not SD or HD to...

    verizon fios in nyc

    I think Cablevision can get away giving MSG-HD to DirectTV using the "terrestial loophole" under FCC rulings - but the fact they provide it to Time Warner is going to be very difficult to defend, as it smacks of restraint of trade. Here is more info. from Verizon's Policy Blog: Posted by...

    verizon fios in nyc

    The fact that Cablevision does provide MSGHD to Time Warner's New York cable systems but not Verizon may come back to haunt them. It looks like FIOS is ratcheting up the pressure by going to the FCC to review the matter. I'm betting that that Cablevision will eventually lose and be forced to...

    Need Advice On Switching To Fios

    I'm sure you're posting OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF YOUR HEART. Except you've consistenly LIED to all of us about actually having FIOS TV service - that's what a shill does. You've been caught. Go back into your hole. No more goodies from the Dolans for you.

    [/B] Please do - if in fact you ever really left. Pardon me for strongly suspecting you are nothing more than a shill for cablevision.

    Discovery HD added

    It looks like they've added Discovery HD (simulcast of regular Discovery channel - not Discovery HD Theatre) on channel 846.

    Will Voom Come To Fios?

    A&E HD LMN HD Food Network HD HGTV HD Sportsnet HD There are rumors that History HD, Discovery HD, The Science Channel HD, TLC HD and the Animal Planet HD will be added by year-end. But I never bet any money on rumors.

    Will Voom Come To Fios?

    WOW - Cablevision wil have 500 hd channels by this time next year. I can't wait to see that. Oh no they said the will have the ability to carry 500, while Verizon is promising to actually carry 150. I guess only time will tell. Two other points: A. Verizon has added five HD channels this...

    Will Voom Come To Fios?

    My neighbor is still with Cablevision and I've seen them at his house. Like me, he thinks they're nice "eye candy" and is furious they wasted what little bandwith Cablevison has left on them. Following Verizon's announcement last week that they will begin a massive expansion of national HD...

    Will Voom Come To Fios?

    Not for me. After they add all the major national HD channels, why not. They'll need a lot more channels than are currently available to reach the 150 promised by year-end 2008.

    Will Voom Come To Fios?

    I switched from Cablevision five months ago. Does Cablevision still have awful SD quality? I hear it does - FIOS blows it away as far as picture quality. Also why on earth did they waste incredibly precious bandwith capacity to add FIFTEEN Voom channels instead of real national HD channels...

    Cv Vs Fios

    I switched from CV to FIOS three months ago and have been extremely happy with their service. The standard definition picture is amazingly superior and the internet service faster (20 mb download and 5mb upload). The HD DVR is about equal to the SA 8300HD (I was having HDMI "handshaking"...

    Cablevision OR Fios

    Why the hell would I believe what a "Cablevision technician" says "testing" (really?) a FIOS installation - funny my install was done by Verizon technicians. Do a search on DSL reports of people who have FIOS and have actually tested electric usage. As for premium on demand built in to the...

    Cablevision OR Fios

    Cableguy, we went through this a couple of month's ago - The $10/month electric bill increase due to the FIOS electric connection is BOGUS. The increase in your electric bill is between $1.50 and $2.00. I finally was able to switch to FIOS a little over a week ago - I live in an apartment...

    Fios and VOIP (Viatalk)

    I switched to FIOS last week and have Vonage. I hooked the vonage phone adapter (It is also a Linksys router) behind the FIOS actiontec router and have had no problems with my VOIP service. The actiontec router is wireless with WEP encyption built in.

    Upcoming HD Channels

    The package I quoted are the new standard Verizon prices - no discounts or promos of any kind. Promotional prices are nice, but I'm more driven by what the price will be after a promotional period ends. I have two HDTV's and the package I quoted was for two HD DVR's not the multiroom DVR...

    Upcoming HD Channels

    [/B] The $8-10 monthly extra electric cost is bogus. Several very savy technical FIOS subscribers on another forum measured the curent draw and, to quote, "Its about an 11 watt draw, which is about 8 KWH/month which translates between $1-2 per month" The battery backup rechargeable battery...

    Upcoming HD Channels

    That is the MAIN point why I'm switching to FIOS. I would immediately have DSCHD and NGCHD, which I really want. More importantly, is the prospect of all the new simulcast HD channels coming on-line later this year (USA, SciFI, FX, CNN, etc. etc. etc.). Even with switched video, I have no...
