808 FOX-HD

809 PBS-HD

810 In Demand 1 HD

811 In Demand 2 HD

812 TNT-HD

813 A&E HD

814 MTV-HD

815 Spike-HD

I like how the channel numbers start at 800. Does this mean they've got 700-odd SD channels?


Hmm, they're missing ESPN2-HD.

Check out the PDF file from the link... It lists the entire lineup.

What I find even more interesting is the lack of


1) UPN and WB / Other locals in the numbering scheme between 805 and 809.


2) No ESPN2-HD etc - nor a numbering gap for them


3) With the available bandwidth, its really curious they did not put on EAST and WEST HD feeds of the movie channels from 819-824 - nor did they leave a hole for them in the numbering scheme.


I realize the .pdf says it could be modified prior to launch - but I find those omissions strange - especially as they have the available bandwidth.


It just seems there wasn't a lot of thought put into this numbering scheme.

Having done that, my new question is: What's with all the duplicated channels?

I think that lineup was just a mock up for the presentation and is highly subject to change. I would not put any weight on it in that presented form.

But they proposed a LOT of channels that can't possibly be carried on that system? For example, there is no way a cable sytem in California is going to carry MSG Network and FSN Southwest.

Wonder what will happen if anyone who looks at the proposal figures that stuff out.

Verizon Fios TV Details

300 channels, DVR that can record 6 programs at once?


A participant of a recent Fios TV market group shares details of the service in this thread in our Fios forum: "The service will offer 300 channels with 18 sports channels, 3X the number of HD channels that Cablevision currently offers, 1,800 on-demand programs and all of the standard local channels." The user also makes the claim that Verizon will provide users with "a DVR box that can record up to SIX programs simultaneously and stream video from one room to another if you have multiple DVR boxes."

wow, that's really nuts. 6 programs at once, fiber rules :D

I just found out that my county (Fairfax Va) is set to vote on the agreement with Verizon for video services on 9/26/05. I have had the fios internet service for several months now and love it. I hope this passes (most think it will) and I get this by the end of the year. Wahoo!!

I also live in Fairfax County and for consumers this is a "no lose" proposition. Verizon will force Cox, which isn't too shabby in the HD department IMO, to work harder to keep its most affluent and technology-savvy customers. Either that, or Verizon will get my business.

BTW, if, like me, you are a geeky loser with a law degree, :rolleyes: here's the link to the Fairfax County page that has all the documents associated with the application. Lots of financial data. Clearly, Verizon wants Fairfax, bad.

Offtopic, but why do the satellite companies get the free pass on the pr0n and the cable companies can only show crap?

Also of interest in the franchise agreement ...


There's a map of the county showing which areas are guaraunteed service within 3 years and which areas are guaraunteed service within 7 years.
