Verizon has announced the launch of Fios TV+ to all new customers who sign up for Fios video services. With Fios TV+, customers can watch live TV and streaming services through one device without a traditional set top box.
“Fios TV+ is a game-changer for delivering all your favorite live TV and streaming content, all in one place, and we’re excited to bring this experience to all of our new Fios video customers at no extra cost,” Heather McDavitt, VP, consumer products for Verizon, said in a statement. “We are committed to always innovating to bring the best, industry-leading experiences our customers deserve and expect from Verizon.”
Fios TV+ integrates live Fios TV and DVR content; the full Fios VOD catalog; and thousands of available apps in Google Play — all with 4K video capabilities. Its customizable user interface allows customers to pin favorite apps and revisit recently viewed channels on the home screen, view personalized recommendations based on watch history, and see which movies and shows can be watched for free through existing subscriptions.
The next-gen Fios TV+ remote control includes a Bluetooth connection (so no line-of-sight is needed to change the channel); voice control with built-in Google Assistant, and Find My Remote functionality that makes a lost remote beep.
Customers also can take it on the go with the Fios TV Mobile app, which delivers live TV on compatible devices for watch-on-the-go functionality.
“Fios TV+ is just the latest example of how we’re continuing to deliver the best experiences for our customers,” Tom Nugent, VP of consumer sales and service for Verizon, said in a statement. “With these advances in Fios technology, I’m excited for all of the ways our Fios TV customers can stream their favorite TV shows and movies like never before.”
Customers can choose to install the smartphone-sized Fios TV+ unit themselves, or schedule an installation appointment with a Fios technician. More details about Fios TV+ are at verizon.com/fiostv.
For a limited time, current Verizon mobile customers who sign up for new Fios internet can get a five-year price guarantee.
Consumers can save $10 per line per month for up to 12 lines when they switch to Verizon mobile and choose an unlimited plan that includes 5G Ultra Wideband.
