    Meet the new guide, same (colours) as the old guide.

    What happens when you improve the guide but give it terrible colors? You fix what's broke and keep what works. Meet Verizon 1.9.1 :cheers:

    Image 1.9 from non-disclosure to full preview

    URGE radio gone

    Music Choice's rival URGE radio (1900-1951) is no longer on. According to some reports URGE itself has ceased operation. Nevertheless, they've always sounded like bad Internet radio while Music Choice has sounded quite good. Bye bye to the B side of cable radio. :dance:

    VOD killed the movie channels?

The East coast feeds of these channels stay put, however. The real question is with VOD are linear...

    Should SD versions of HD channels go the way of analog?

    Verizon FiOS more than traditional cable systems as FiOS, IIRC, started as a digital cable service with some analog as opposed to traditional cable who started analog and added digital later on. Should FiOS drop SD channels available in HD to make room for more HD channels? It would mean...

    Is Verizon FiOS big enough for its own thread?

    In the "Cable and Satellite Providers" section I noticed Verizon FiOS was not listed and assume it's part of the "And the rest" thread. My question is isn't Verizon FiOS in enough locations to be given its own thread? I have FiOS and think it's quite good. Just wondering.
