Samsung-connected TVs to host Verizon FiOS
Following behind similar deals with Comcast and Time Warner Cable, Samsung Electronics America said it will host the Verizon FiOS TV App on its Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray Players.
Starting sometime later this year, the app will allow Verizon FiOS TV subscribers to instantly access 26 live TV channels directly through their broadband-connected TVs or Blu-ray players.
Users will also have access to more than 10,000 video-on-demand titles available through Verizon Flex View, which delivers video to TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones.
"Our companies are squarely focused on two objectives: adding tangible value and excitement to our customers' entertainment experience," said Eric Anderson, vice president of content and product solutions at Samsung Electronics America. "By combining our respective capabilities and technologies, we are advancing our goals to transform entertainment throughout the home."
