Next on FiOS: 3-D movies on-demand
Verizon is doing its bit to keep the 3-D hype going with a promise to deliver 10 3-D feature films on-demand over the course of the next two months.
The parade of boffo box office 3-D hits will start on Nov. 16 with "Cats & Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore" and will end with "Disney's A Christmas Carol" and "Step Up 3-D" in December.
In between, during the holiday gift-giving season, the movies that will inspire potentially millions of FiOS subscribers to drop between $1,000 and $3,000 on new 3-D TVs include: "Chicken Little," "Bolt," "Meet the Robinsons," "Journey to the Center of the Earth," "Under the Sea," "Deep Sea" and "Nascar."
Verizon promises even more 3-D films in 2011.
"Verizon is continuing to develop 3-D experiences for our FiOS TV customers, and now that includes access to video-on-demand titles available at their convenience," said Tricia Lynch, director of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon. "This selection of 3-D movies allows our customers to see what 3-D on FiOS TV is really like – with the advanced picture quality and sound that makes FiOS the ultimate home-entertainment experience."
