Verizon is introducing HD VOD in several of its FiOS TV markets: Richmond and Virginia Beach, Va.; Tampa, Fla.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; and Pittsburgh.
The service will launch soon in the Washington, D.C., metro area, and in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Verizon said its remaining FiOS TV markets will receive HD VOD by year’s end.
"We're delivering HD on-demand with the same amazing picture quality that customers expect from FiOS TV – and with the promise of more HD programming in 2008," said Shawn Strickland, Verizon's VP of video solutions.
Verizon’s initial HD VOD offering contains about 75 HD titles, and its VOD library houses more than 10,000 titles. Last month, the company said it plans to have more than 150 HD programming channels by the end of 2008.
