3:45 PM -- Verizon is taking its next steps to deliver video services in parts of North Texas in the next few days.

The company has a cable franchise agreement hearing in Wylie, Texas, tomorrow at 7 p.m. (See this agenda, page 2.)

And, in Keller, home of the most famous FTTP deployment in the U.S., Verizon will have its second of two required public readings before its cable franchise is granted there. (See this agenda, page 3.)

If each franchise agreement is approved by the respective cities, Verizon will become an official video provider and, on paper, a direct competitor with satellite and cable.

Sources in Keller say they've been told that Verizon is aiming to debut its TV service in late Q1 or early Q2.
