UPDATE: We’ve been hearing reports from many soccer fans in the United States that the rollout of Fox Soccer Channel HD and Fox Soccer Plus in HD is not limited to Cablevision customers in Connecticut but is now available for most, if not all, Cablevision regions in the United States.

  1. Cablevision on Long Island also just started to broadcast FSC in HD. Blackpool-Man U game is first game I’ve noticed to be in HD.

    1. Yep. Must have started today. I noticed it when watching the prem weekend highlights at 1pm. Sky wasn’t in hs before it.

  2. Brighthouse in Tampa added FSP HD about 6 months ago. And about two weeks before Christmas we got FSC HD & Gol HD… Christmas came early.

  3. I live in Milford and this would have been great news 6 months ago before I signed up for DirecTV, but my folks still have Cablevision so I can watch FS+ in HD for free instead of paying $15/month for a part time HD station on DirecTV.
