Washington, D.C. (August 25, 2008) -- Verizon's FiOS TV service is launching 55 new High-Definition channels in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the company announced today.

The telco says it will now offer 85 high-def channels in those markets, adding that represents more than any cable TV operator in the area including Comcast, Charter and Cox.

"FiOS TV is the only service to consider if you want the ultimate HD experience," said Bob Driscoll, Verizon vice president of sales and marketing in New England.  "With our increased number of HD channels, along with HD video-on-demand programming and our current HD DVR and premium movie promotion, we're blowing cable away."

The new HD channels include Animal Planet, TLC, Science Channel and Smithsonian Channel, CNN, CNBC, Lifetime, Bravo, TBS, History Channel, Weather Channel, USA and SCI

In addition, there are 11 new high-def channels from Cinemax and 13 new HD channels from HBO.

Verizon has also added the high-def edition of the Big Ten Network in the two states as well as the Versus/Golf Channel HD.
