I'm confused as fuck: we are seeing this because of Verizon? Or you do not live here and you are seeing it because of Verizon?
I thought I was watching it because of Comcast. BTW, even though I'm a young buck, I'm way behind the technological times and have no idea what a Fios is.
FiOS = Fiber Optic Service. It is digital signal being transferred over optical wire made from silicone, similar to what you'd find on those crazy light-em-up plastic things you'd see at circuses. The reason he's seeing it is because he has a service akin to digital cable from Comcast. It's the best quality you'll get as far as TV and Internet goes right now. And the internet is 5x faster than cable and 10 bucks cheaper.
Even though the game is over, just thought I'd let it be known that http://www.sopcast.org/
is a pretty good place, and PSU4LYFE also mentioned www.channelsurfing.ne t
over at MGP. Just to let anyone else know.
