The new features were previously deployed in Texas, California, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and downstate New York and will be expanded to all other FiOS TV markets over the next few months.
In western New York, Verizon FiOS TV is available in parts of Amherst, Blasdell, Hamburg (the town and village), Kenmore, Lackawanna, Orchard Park (the town and village), Tonawanda and West Seneca.
