Though probably not as niche as Rural Free Delivery
(RFD HD), World Fishing Network HD still has a pretty narrow
audience. That being the case, there's still some logic to pushing the channel in rural parts of America or in regions with nearby fishing outlets. Call us crazy, but New York City is not
the first place that comes to find when someone mentions deep sea fishin'. Nevertheless, Verizon has just announced that WFN HD
has arrived in the Big Apple on FiOS TV, giving transplants an easy way to get back in touch with their small town roots. There's no word on when the station will hit other FiOS TV areas, but we'd bet it'll be making the rounds soon enough.
