Video distortion on CBS Sports Channel

Anyone else noticing an excess "choppiness," intermittently, on CBS's Sports Channel? Hadn't noticed it before here (NYC's Verizon) until tennis from the U.S. Open. Didn't notice the effect from the main CBS channel. The visible stuttering effect was especially bad with tennis balls in flight. Just speculation, but if they're statistically multiplexing tennis with other sports channels I can see how the choppiness could come and go depending on how much action is taking place in shared frequencies. -- John

Triple Play to Double Play?

Has anyone gone from Triple Play to Double Play for FIOS? I have Extreme HD with HBO, 25/25 for internet, and Digital Voice. Looking to ways to lower my bill. Right now my bill is about $197 a month, have a DVR in the living room that I hardly ever record anything, think I will just change that to a regular hd box, I do not even have a home phone and was thinking of dropping the digital voice and going to just a double play package, has anyone done this before? Thanks for the info. John.

WHen I used to be on the double play, it cost me less to go to the triple play and add digital voice. When I recently renewed this Summer, it was only a few dollars more expensive for me to be on the triple play than for me to drop Digital Voice and go down to the double play. But I am also on the Ultimate HD Tier and dropped down to 75/75 Internet so my Triple play cost is $140. With the 150 tier that I was on, it was still cheaper to be on the triple play than on the double play.

About 18 months ago I changed from triple play to double play. I estimated it was costing me about $40/mo for the phone service - much of which was fees that Verizon arbitrarily assigned. My triple play total bill was $221/mo with Extreme HD, Showtime/Starz package, and 25/15 internet. My double play bill was $180/mo with Ultimate HD and 50/25 internet. More channels, faster internet, $41/mo less. Ported my home number to Ooma Premier and still save $25/mo.

Just did this as well. Ported number to Ooma, dropped FiOS DV and between fees and the DV base price, am saving near $30 per month. (And Ooma not only works well, the voice quality is better than FiOS DV ever was.)

From what Verizon was telling me, if I go from Triple play to Double play, I would lose all the discounts that I have right now with Triple play and would be pretty much paying what I pay right now. I did not change it, just left things the way they were .

heard from a little bird that the FIOS VOD pause/resume/bookmark issue may have been resolved in last nights update to Quantum boxes. Have not had a chance to try it out but did notice a new power-on landing page. Anyone else see any changes?

I notice The SEC channel is now available in HD on 575.

But I am now having audio issues on the lower HD channels (503 - 665+,-) in Northern VA. Anyone else?
