FiOS TV Coming To Mac And iOS Devices In 2011
FiOS TV is coming to a Mac’s and iOS device near you. No official release date has been announced yet.
In a brief teaser video, Joe Ambeault, Verizon’s director of consumer product development hinted that his company is working on a FiOS app for the iPad, iPhone and Mac with a probable release date in early 2011. It’s believed that the iPad app at least will require a Verizon Internet connection, and that Verizon is working on a video-on-demand service.
In August, we saw a brief teaser video on youtube of an iPad interacting with FiOS, though not much more information has been released since then. There are currently two official FiOS apps in the App Store, including Verizon FiOS Mobile Remote for iPhone and iPod touch (free), which works as a remote for FiOS TV set top boxes, and Verizon FiOS DVR Manager (free) which lets customers program FiOS DVRs remotely. Neither is universal, so expect pixel-doubling on the iPad.
In the meantime check out the video interview:
