Verizon is making the personalized Internet radio service Pandora widely available to subscribers. Verizon launched the service today to FiOS TV customers in California, Texas and Virginia, and it will be available in additional markets in the coming months.

FiOS TV subscribers can access their existing radio stations from Pandora, or create a new account with the music service and stream the music directly to their TV from their Motorola high-definition (HD) set-top box or Motorola DVR.

Pandora, Verizon’s latest addition to its FiOS TV application store, enables consumers to create personalized radio stations based on their favorite artists, songs and genres. Through FiOS TV, subscribers can access Pandora’s features, such as creating new stations, bookmarking songs for purchase, and rating songs with a simple thumbs-up or thumbs-down, all via the FiOS remote control.

Pandora and other interactive FiOS TV applications can be controlled through the FiOS TV mobile remote app, available on more than 40 mobile devices, including the DROID X and the Apple iPhone and iPad. The mobile remote app gives smartphones, laptops and tablets virtually the same functionality as the standard FiOS TV remote control.
