Today Verizon announced plans for a fivefold increase in the number of HD channels, to 150 channels, as well as plans for offering additional HD content through FiOS TV's video-on-demand service.

Verizon is also planning a major expansion of sports and multicultural programming on FiOS TV in 2008.
In the spring of 2008, Verizon will begin expanding its HD lineup as well as the sports and multicultural program offerings on FiOS TV. Verizon will initially double the current number of HD channels, on a market-by-market basis, to more than 60, including additional sports channels. Verizon expects to have more than 150 HD channels by year-end 2008 as it continues to add to its HD lineup and programmers launch new channels. The company will also add standard-definition sports, multicultural and other programming during the year.

FiOS TV has about 717,000 FiOS TV customers in 12 states.
