For those of you on the fence about whether to invest in FiOS, soon they might be the masters of all high-def programming. The all-encompassing service provider just announced plans to increase its high-definition programming lineup to 150 channels by the end of 2008.

“Once more, Verizon leads the way,” Shawn Strickland, Verizon’s vice president of video solutions, said in a statement. Tell that to the 700,000 customers that were watching baseball playoffs without HD!

The company has recently been under fire for not adding HD channels, such as TBS HD.

Patience, people! All Things High-Def says that Verizon will first double its HD channels up to 60, starting in spring 2008. They also plan to make their HD video-on-demand lineup 1,000-titles strong by the end of that year.
