FEARNet HD is NOT on FIOS!

The only HD from FEARNet that is on FIOS are the OnDemand offerings.  The linear channel is only offered in SD (and the films are censored as well). Have to get that straight. And every movie is constantly covered with ads that fill up to 25% of the movie while it's running!  Can't begin to tell you how appealing it is to get to a suspenseful moment in a  movie, only to then have the lower part of the screen covered with an ad for "Vampire Condoms"!  On another film, a newspaper headline reveals a plot point...but what that point was, I couldn't be sure...because ads were obscuring it.  Whatever marketing "genius" thought this was a good idea should be demoted post-haste.  I don't even bother watching anymore.

Yeah, What gives? The website states that FEARNet HD is available on FiOS .. But all thats available is the SD version on Channel 197. Where's the HD version of the channel?

 

Also, couldnt the channel run ads inbetween movies and not during??

They do show ads before and in-between the movie.  The ads while the movie is running is IN ADDITION to those!  Oh yes...no 5.1 audio on the films either.  On the plus side, at least the movies seem to be in the proper aspect ratio (i.e no chopping off the picture)...but that is the only saving virtue.
