FiOS TV Scores More Premium VoD
FiOS TV subscribers who have HBO and Cinemax soon can enjoy new HBO HD and Cinemax HD VOD channels, with 150 hours of programming from each channel -- a total of 300 hours -- giving FiOS TV customers more HD programming from HBO and Cinemax than any other provider.
In addition, Verizon is expanding its FiOS TV Movie Package by adding on-demand content in HD from The Movie Channel, by doubling the amount of HD VOD content from Starz, and by adding 150 hours of movies on-demand from Encore. All of the new content will be available this fall.
"FiOS TV customers want the best in HD programming, especially when it comes to premium channels, and Verizon offers the most HD premium content in the industry," said Tricia Lynch, director of Video on Demand programming at Verizon. "With more than 70 premium movie channels, more than 40 of which are in HD, the most HBO and Cinemax HD channels available, and FiOS TV's incredible picture-and-sound quality, our customers don't need to leave the comfort of their home to get a true movie-theater experience."
