Default 5 NYC buroughs get FiOS TV

The only service which does not compress HD content, Verizon FiOS, goes to 5 NYC buroughs. http://newscenter.verizon.com/press-...ation-and.html
FiOS TV will include an all digital channel line-up of more than 400 channels and 150 HD channels by year-end, and a growing library of more than 10,000 video-on-demand selections 70 percent of which are at no additional charge. Verizon's fiber network delivers amazingly sharp pictures and sound, and has the capacity to transmit a wide array of HD programming that is so clear and intense it seems to leap from the TV screen. In addition to FiOS TV, Verizon's fiber network also delivers Internet download speeds of up to 50 Mbps (megabits per second) and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbps, as well as high-quality voice service.

I am jealous! It will be a long time before we see anything like that around here.
