FiOS-Thumb

Verizon is upping the number of channels FiOS subscribers can watch when they're away from home. With 16 additional options - reaching a total of 25 - there's a better chance mobile TV watchers will be able to find something on that they actually want to watch. Naturally, the number of options isn't exhaustive, but the new crop contains heavy hitters including Showtime and Starz.

New channels:

  • AXS.tv
  • beIN SPORT
  • beIN SPORT Espanol
  • Bloomberg TV
  • Cine Sony Television
  • Cooking Channel
  • Encore
  • FEARnet
  • NFL RedZone (tablet only)
  • SHOWTIME
  • SHOWTIME EXTREME
  • Sony Movie Channel
  • STARZ
  • Trinity Broadcast
  • Universal Sports
  • TVGN (TV Guide Network)

FiOS customers can stream far more channels in the comfort of their own home, with everyone having access to 91 channels. Inhabitants of New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and D.C. in particular get additional local channels as well. Either way, you need to have Verizon's FiOS app installed to watch anything. You can grab it below.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    Now impress me with Chromecast support. I know it will never happen because they don't want to compete with their own cable boxes, but that would be sweet.

      That wouldn't be bad, but I'm looking for being able to play what you record on your DWR. The live streaming is actually really nice, but watching Big Bang Theory I recorded but haven't watched yet while on the train to work would be the killer feature IMO.

      You never know. They have FiOS on the Xbox.

        See now, I'd know that if I had an Xbox. I should probably buy one so I can be in the know. Yeah, my wife will totally accept that as a legitimate reason to buy one...

          It's also on Samsung SmartTVs (and other smart devices like bluray players)

      This and to be able to get JUST a mobile subscription.
