NEW YORK -- Verizon continues to pioneer the future of TV with the introduction of Flex View, giving FiOS TV customers anywhere, anytime access to on-demand video entertainment. Flex View enhances FiOS TV Video on Demand to let customers take video programming outside of the home and view it on various portable devices, including a growing number of compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops. The new feature is now available to most FiOS subscribers and will be in all FiOS markets by the end of the month.

With more than 1,400 currently available movie titles - which are expected to grow to more than 2,000 titles by year-end and at least triple that by next year, including TV shows - customers can enjoy the ease of watching their favorite titles any time, anywhere.

Unlike typical streaming services, Flex View lets users download titles to computers and smartphones so users can watch even when there is no Internet connection available. In addition, next year users will be able to access their personal content - including photos, videos and music - on the go. There is no additional subscription fee required to use Flex View.

"Verizon is taking the triple play to the triple screen, making on-the-go video programming quick and easy," said Shawn Strickland, vice president of consumer strategy and planning for Verizon. "This is a valuable extension of our FiOS TV VOD service, enabling customers to rent or purchase video programming and enjoy it anytime, anywhere - even outside of Verizon service areas. On planes, trains and automobiles; in hotel rooms and waiting rooms; at work or at play - you name it - Verizon's new Flex View capability puts video content at customers' fingertips."
