WILL THE VOOM HD Channels COME TO FIOS? I really want to know, i want to switch to fios, but i like Monsters HD, and they do not have it.
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 like FX, USA, Scifi, CNNHD, etc., etc. Wait I know!! - the Dolans didn't have to spend a dime for them. Sorry my friend - you can keep Voom and Cablevision.
So you switched before voom was even added, so you dont even know what your missing, 15 channels that show 24hrs of full hd. I much rather have that then a channel that may show 2 or 3 hours of hd a day if your lucky. Plus voom has unique programming you will not find on any other channel which is great, i personally like the show treasure divers, concrete canvas, the over series where they fly over different locations in a helicopter giving a narrative. Also the concerts on Rave cant wait for thanksgiving when they are going to be premiring the queen under pressure concert and david gilmour concert.
No, it was acquired by one of the other providers and they hold exclusive rights to it. Sorry.
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 channels in 2008, he has decided to switch to FIOS.
because he knows how much bandwidth cablevision has they currently have more hd channels, more sports channels(center ice, league pass, etc.), more international channels. And they currently have a internet service that is faster then anything verizon can offer albeit very few customers have it, it is called ultra and is a symmetrical 50/50 speed. Let me know when verizon starts offering these services to customers.
I think that you are mis-informed. CV currently does have more HD, but that will soon change and they are rate limited by transmission media. As for Internet VZ offers 100meg. That is much more than 50/50. Costs is also less for VZ on the 100 meg than the CV 50 meg. In addition, VZ offers a very attractive 15 meg package as part of the standard residential package for the same price as CV's 5 meg service.
Lets not out out invalid information, k'.
why dont you take your own advise because cablevision doesnt have a 5meg connection they have a 15, 30 and 50. VZ 100Mb? Where not anywhere in the new york tri-state area. Cablevision has already stated that by the end of this year they will be able to carry 500hd channels, not the 150 promised by verizon by the end of next year. the difference between cablevision and vz is cablevision is adding hd while verizon is not, in the last year they added what one hd channel a&e.
what were the 5hd channels they added? I searched their websited and it lookes like they added sportsnet NY HD and A&E hd this year.
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 year - not one.
B. I'm paying the same price for 20/5 internet speed with FIOS vs. the 17/2 I had with Cablevison - and the speeds are far more consistent than they ever were with Optimum online.
But most importantly, I apologize to the rest of this forum for taking the bait from two obvious Cablevision trolls and keeping this idiotic thread alive. The overwhelming majority of you do not live in the New York Metro area and never have had to live with this substandard Cable company. Believe me when I tell you with all its "teething faults", Verizon is still a quantum improvement over Cablevision.
VZ 100Mb? Where not anywhere in the new york tri-state area.
