uncompressed HD isn't an excuse to be the only ones with no 3d. no 3d xgames this weekend and an eta of end of year. wow, going to be too little too late.
unacceptable period pus i dont know how much I buy into this uncompressed great looking HD. i dont think the HD looks any better then comcast or directv and even if slightly its not an excuse not to have 3D.
verizon fios tv got caught off guard with their pants down. they are supposed to have the technology with the most bandwidth adn yet they can't even provide epsn3 (3d). directv has a good amount of 3d content and on demand stuff and ppl are loving it.
anyone with a 3d tv is fiending for more content and right now directv is one of the best ways and most variety of content as the only other content is a few 3d blurays even downloading demo clips etc. online doesnt' provide much and a few ps3 demos. directv currently has the most 3d content of any format or tv provider and again ppl are impressed and loving it.
Comcast has some too but not quite as much as directv i think but still more then fios which is sad when even comcast beats you.
FIOS=FAIL period. with no catching up till end of year and will then be even more behind so just like back when they got late start on demand and especially hd on demand and the time when they fell behind comcast even in HD channels for some time, they are going to always be behind in 3D now for some time probably. though hopefully with their not being much I'd think they would be able to match directv just by opening up a small amount of bandwidth.
meantime i may just get one directv hd dvr box (can dvr 3d content too) but thats extra cost unless i get rid of a fios hd dvr box and could get locked in contract with directv just like i think we are in one with fios so i can't fullys witch to comcast directv either.
also my one fios box has been glitching and skipping often where among other things it will skip back a second so if someone is talking they say the same word twice like literally a 1 second backskip then it continues.
oh and having to keep your router on all the time just so on demand and the guide will even work is also kind of fail as you dont have to do that with comcast.
