Pittsburgh residents can now get FiOS TV, joining consumers in many suburban communities across southwestern Pennsylvania who already receive the service. FiOS TV offers more than 600 channels, including 122 high-definition (HD) channels in Pittsburgh, competing with Comcast, the city’s current cable provider.

FiOS includes an interactive media guide with features that include
Multi-Room DVR and Media Manager, which lets FiOS DVR customers access personal photos, videos and music from their home computers and play them on their TVs. FiOS also permits remote DVR management for subs to remotely control their DVRs online. And Verizon’s TV service includes its new Widgets feature. (For more, click here).

Verizon introduced FiOS TV in southwestern Pennsylvania in November 2007 and offers FiOS TV to more than 250,000 households in nearly 80 suburban communities across the region.
