You've already taken away Angel and Dodger games from FSN HD. Verizon cable is starting to look like a much better option getting off the sinking Charter vessel.
I'll assume that you don't subscribe to Charter HD service and have enjoyed viewing those two channels clear QAM until now.
While I'm no Charter apologist by any stretch of the imagination, you should consider yourself lucky to have gotten any non-network HD clear-QAM in the past. Except due to oversight,very
few cablecos provide anything more than network HD channels via clear-QAM. The channels you mentioned are part of the HD tier. For me, $5/month HD tier + $5/month HD stb (or $2/month cablecard). There are MANY other non-premium channels that are encrypted QAM.
I would prefer Charter improve the quality of their existing HD channels instead of adding more.
