Fox Soccer Channel HD Coming to Verizon FiOS in April

The long wait for Verizon FiOS customers to get Fox Soccer Channel HD appears to be almost finally over. “For all of the soccer fans out there, Fox Soccer Channel HD is coming in April,” said Heather Wilner, manager of media relations for Verizon FiOS, on its corporate blog.

Interestingly when Verizon FiOS’s director of product management was quizzed about the mention, he responded on Twitter by saying “You’ll have to ask @heatherwilner– those r her words – I’m not touching this topic w/ a 10 ft pole.” So much for everyone at the company being on the same page.

Nevertheless, Wilner confirmed the news on her Twitter account and said that she will keep everyone posted on official launch dates.

With the forthcoming availability of Fox Soccer Channel HD on Verizon FiOS, Comcast Cable remains one of the last nationwide TV providers who still does not offer Fox Soccer Channel HD to its customers nationwide. Read the following story to learn how you can help get FSCHD added: How to demand your TV provider Adds Fox Soccer Plus or FSCHD.

    In Seattle they sold off Fios to Frontier. Anyone know if we’ll pick it up on Frontier Fios, or if we get the short end of the stick?

    It’s great that Fios came out with another HD channel. Subscribing and working for DISH Network I have had The Fox Soccer Channel for awhile now. I prefer DISH Network as my provider, because with them I get the most HD in the industry. They carry so many channels in HD, and if you qualify you can get HD free for life. I don’t have to pay any additional charge for my HD channels. I think it’s great they are coming out with more and more channels, and hopefully they can keep on doing that.

  19. Stephen

    April 5, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    FINALLY!!!.I just got carpet burn from sliding on my knees when I saw this news….It pains me to see Brighthouse networks in my area to offer FSC HD and FSC+ for 5 bucks and I’m paying 14.99(for the love of the game) and not getting coverage in HD…. this def would be a great gift for the season ending.

    @celticmad67, crossing my fingers that the reps info is true!!!…

    • glee

      April 5, 2011 at 5:35 pm

      they said FSC HD is coming not FSP HD…

      That’s funny!! The FIOSTV twitter guy definitely sounds like a broken man when discussing FSC HD.

    Just spoke to Verizon. A very helpfull rep told me to expect Fox Soccer HD on channel 584 being switched on in defferent areas on the 11th thru the 14th. At Last!!!!!!

    As a FiOS user, I’m excited, but won’t believe it till I see it. They have pushed back this launch for almost a year. Saying it is coming over and over… Then in January pushed BET in front of FSC. Then they recently added Tru for the NCAA. and it being April and all… maybe we’ll get it before the season is over.
