Verizon FiOS to add HD channels this summer

Verizon, the company that brings you fiber-optic television, internet, and phone service through fiber-optics, announced more than 60 new channels to be launched this summer. The company says that at least 25 of them will be high-definition.

Some of the channels scheduled for launch include Lifetime, Animal Planet, TLC, Science Channel and Smithsonian Channel. Customers who have the FiOS TV Movie Package will also see an additional 5 HD channels from Starz and Showtime.

Terry Denson, VP of FiOS TV content and programming said, “We are aggressively acquiring high-quality programming in both standard and high definition that appeals to a broad array of viewers.”

The company, not unlike most television providers, claims to have a picture and quality that is “unmatched.” They argue their high-definition content is uncompressed (beyond the initial MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 compression that is necessary for any HD broadcast) and therefore superior to other service provider’s hi def content which can be further compressed.

The company will be rolling out the new channels over the next few months. The total number of high-definition channels should reach between 52 and 65 depending on the area served.
