    I see they are supposed to start showing previous seasons of Mad Men starting at 6am Sunday. I probably will not have time to catch up on Mad Men or Breaking Bad. This is only season 2 of The Killing so hopefully they will show season 1 for us just starting to watch AMC. I don't want to pay $50 for it!

    I always shake my head at the notion that Fios has so much. They don't. They pretty much stopped new HD early last year (adding just a couple channels) and even took away some premiums.

    Until they either go to IPTV (unlikely) or MPEG4 (likely but involves a swap out of old HD boxes and requires the ever late IMG 1.9), they have less capacity available than DirecTV.

    Even Cablevision has added BBC America surprising many.

    I keep their basic cable for the subchannels and backup TV and to feed someone that claims to not like TV or be interested in a Satellite box. That TV is always on, tuned to News 12 however.:lol:

    I find their Internet to be great. Knock wood.

    I stopped watching when they became commercialized, back then they showed more classic movies. Without MAD MEN and some of the new original series, they wouldn't be much of a channel. shoulda made TMC hd instead of AMC. wHAT A WASTE OF BANDWIDTH.

    Ya. I should have re-checked before I posted. I hadn't looked in a while, and I see you're right. They really don't have anything in HD I want that D* doesn't also have in HD, especially now that AMC is available.

    Ya. As someone with both D* and FiOS, ATM, I'd like to see those 5 added in HD to each.

    Except for my 25/25 internet that I pay $45/mo for (and these days, out of contract) :D, I don't get the FIOS love either...
