No. I got in touch with HBO and they confirmed that they were sending it to FIOS (as they were to all other providers).

There would be a channel like FOX, that would broadcast the NFL games in a soft 720-ish resolution, but that was their fault, not Comcast. Football on CBS and NFL Network were 1080.

I'll probably wind up getting another FIOS box, but I suspect that it's a slick cost cutting measure that they thought the customers wouldnt notice. Im gonna get the runaround. It's not just the channels. The On Demand is soft and pixely.
Have you tried to stream whatever you wanted to watch on demand? I currently have Comcast(Bucks County) and their on demand and DVR pic quality is soft too prompting me to download network and cable apps and greatly improved video quality.

For channels I never ever watch. Since it pissed me off so much I'm seriously considering leaving FiOS. Now that Comcast has increased their cap to 1TB, Comcast is a viable option for me. I would only have 35Mb/s upload speeds, but at least I would still have 150Mb/s download speeds and much lower prices for a triple play that I'm paying FiOS now. I'll need to make a decision shortly about it.
Comcast upped their regional sports fee too.

so did you ever switch from FiOS to Comcast?...I was in the same boat as far as increasing prices and Verizon refusing to offer any more promotion credits...so I switched to RCN for 5 months (they gave me 2 months free)...then I switched back to FiOS about a week ago to get the new customer pricing...now my rates are lower then what I was previously paying with FiOS and I'm happy...the difference in picture quality from FiOS to RCN is also very noticeable (meaning FiOS is better)
