Cablevision Connecticut to Launch Fox Soccer Channel HD and Fox Soccer Plus HD

Cablevision in Connecticut is scheduled to launch Fox Soccer Channel in HD and Fox Soccer Plus in HD beginning on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 according to a public filing with the state of Connecticut.

Fox Soccer HD will launch on channel 797 and will be available to residential customers (with the proper HD equipment) subscribing to the iO Package and above. Fox Soccer Plus HD will launch on channel 798 and will be available to residential customers (with the proper HD equipment) subscribing to the iO Sports Package.

Customer service personnel have been informed of this change and are available to answer individual subscriber questions. Revised channel line-ups for the Cablevision franchise areas can be viewed at: http://www.optimum.com/channel_lineups.jsp

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.
