Samsung today announced the availability of the FiOS TV app
on compatible Samsung Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray players.
The app on the Samsung Smart Hub platform lets Verizon's
FiOS TV and FiOS Internet subscribers watch 26 live FiOS TV
channels and more than 20,000 FlexView on-demand movies and
TV shows on these TVs and blu-ray players without requiring
a set-top box.
FiOS subscribers that have either FiOS TV or FiOS Internet
subscriptions can download the free FiOS TV app on their
compatible Samsung Smart devices without requiring a
secondary set-top box. The app will offer access to 26
channels at launch, including CNN, MTV, HBO, TBS, TNT, Food
Network and HGTV, based on the subscribers' current FiOS TV
package. The app also offers access to more than 20,000
movie and TV show titles available monthly through FiOS
TV?s Flex View, which offers FiOS customers the ability to
buy or rent these titles and watch them on the TV, PC or
mobile device and now compatible Samsung devices.
The FiOS TV application has parent friendly features such
as parental PIN options to restrict mature content as well
as a purchase PIN requirement for authorization of any
rental and purchases of On Demand content through the
application. The application also offers traditional
features such as closed captioning, help and FAQs.
