Do we really need any more reasons to be jealous of those who already have Verizon FiOS broadband and IPTV service? I think not, but Verizon continues to push the envelope through slick new offerings and features. The new FiOS Interactive Media Guide is no exception and again begs the question of "What have cable providers been doing for the last decade?"
This is simply another testament as to why Verizon recently scored #4 on PC World's Best Product List
. While we don't agree with all in the top 20, Verizon's FiOS service is definitely one that deserves its notch. Click on the below thumbnails to see larger images.
There's really not much I can say about this guide except "wow" and you have to see it for yourself using their full demo
to see the slick interface, instant channel changing, search functionality, DVR integration, PC integration, widgets, and everything else.
The new interface is available in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where Verizon recently launched FiOS TV, and other FiOS TV subscribers will have it later this summer.
