Verizon Adds 16 New Channels To Mobile FiOS, Options Include Showtime, Starz, The Cooking Channel, And More

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 App] Verizon FiOS Mobile Allows Home (And Only Home) Video Streaming, Confuses The Hell Out Of Customers

You've got 11 apps spread across two publishers, and today you've added another one, with a brand new publisher, that duplicates at least some of the functionality of two previous ones. Don't try to hide it in your Services Corp pocket. We see the innocuously-titled Verizon FiOS Mobile app poking out.

Verizon Bringing Video-On-Demand To Smartphones, Adding Some Cloud Storage

Verizon announced that they’d be releasing an app for a variety of devices that adds functionality for FiOS customers. For example, iPad users can watch TV on the device as long as they’re at home. More relevantly to our purposes, though: they’ll be releasing an app to allow some smartphone users to stream video-on-demand.
