Cablevision in Connecticut services the areas of Bridgeport, Litchfield, New Haven and Norwalk.

Is this the first cable provider in the United States to offer Fox Soccer Plus in HD?

If you’re like me and your local TV provider still doesn’t offer Fox Soccer Channel in HD nor Fox Soccer Plus, use the following resources:

Thanks to Jeff S. for the news tip. If you have a news tip for EPL Talk, send it in to me at thegaffer[at]epltalk[dot]com.

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. Good news indeed.

    I have TWC in Raleigh, NC. We have Fox Soccer Plus in HD but FSC is only SD.

    • Steve says:

      Same here in Augusta, Maine. I have Fox Soccer Plus in HD but can only get FSC in SD. The quality of the SD is horrible.

    • Guy says:

      Exactly the same in eastern NC (Beaufort). FS+ is in the Sports Pass for $4.50. A great deal since I am also a rugby fan. :-)

  2. Mike says:

    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.

    Time Warner Cable in New York City has both FSC and FS+ in HD as well as GOL TV in HD.

  5. Sasha says:

    Cablevision in the Bronx, NY just started FSC in HD today (FS Plus in HD already going)

  6. Ryan says:

    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.

  7. CTBlues says:

    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.
