The new HD channels are: Cars.tv, Pets.tv, Comedy.tv, MyDestination.tv, Es.tv, and Recipe.tv - it looks like FiOS TV will be the only one carrying these "Voom-like" channels. Not much detail on the Entertainment Studios website...or Verizon's for that matter.

Distributors have to carry the whole suite of six services, they can’t cherry pick just a few of them. And content from the six HDTV networks will be available on their own individual Web sites and on mobile, according to Allen.

“Verizon is committed to leading the industry in the scope and quality of our programming with a major focus on HD content,” Terry Denson, vice president of FiOS TV content and programming, said in a prepared statement. “The future addition of these six high-def networks, coupled with our advanced fiber-optic technology, will help to further enhance our FiOS TV offering and will certainly appeal to many of our customers.”

...“Verizon saw us as a way of making a strong statement to the consumers that we are first in class in terms of having terrific HD content and HD networks,” Allen said. “They’re going to use us very well to acquire customers who are pet lovers and car lovers and want another food network and want another comedy channel and travel channel and want choices and options.”
