Verizon's HD channels have been stagnant for years now. They ran out of QAM space and have all but given up adding new HD channels. They are lacking important HD channels that every other provider carries like Cartoon Network or BBC America.
When you subtract the six worthless infomercial ".TV" networks (which not one other provider carries, and for good reason), as well as the dozen pointless "West" feeds of the premium channels Verizon carries on their east coast systems (and vice-versa), which is also something other providers don't do... we find that Verizon's FiOS TV HD channel lineup is utterly pathetic - behind Dish Network, AT&T, the majority of the cable companies, and barely more than DirecTV.
At least Time Warner Cable with their 4% rate hikes last year rolled out tons of HD channels throughout their markets. In NYC Time Warner carries over 60 more HD channels than Verizon. This "state of the art" fiber optics service isn't feeling so state of the art anymore with copper kicking its ass like this. It's become apparent that Verizon no longer cares about its FiOS customers.
