IRVING, Texas -- Verizon continues to transform the way people interact with and enjoy TV viewing by bringing the next generation of its FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide to subscribers in the company's Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex service area. More than 500,000 households in the area can now take advantage of award-winning FiOS TV and the advanced IMG.

Introduced in 2007, the FiOS TV IMG was the first broadband platform to pull together content from broadcast TV, the Internet and users' own personal media into one media-management system. It has since evolved into an in-depth, interactive TV experience, with applications for advanced/intuitive search, social networking, Internet video, personal media streaming, high-definition music, remote DVR controls, account management and billing functions, multi-screen/mobile viewing and much more.

"As customers explore the richness of their FiOS TV service, they'll find an easy-to-manage, highly interactive, technologically advanced offering unlike anything available in the marketplace today, delivered over the ultimate, advanced network," said Shawne Angelle, president of operations for Verizon's Texas region. "We're erasing technology boundaries to free customers to benefit from everything they're looking for in entertainment – at home and on the go."
