Verizon is now taking orders for FiOS TV in parts of Bayville, the Town of North Hempstead, New Hyde Park, Sands Point, the Town of Haverstraw, West Haverstraw, Chestnut Ridge and the Town of North Castle, including the unincorporated hamlets within each of the eight towns.
The company already offers FiOS TV in more than 70 New York communities through cable franchises that have been approved in White Plains, Rye Brook, Irvington, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Tarrytown, Eastchester, Mount Kisco, Elmsford, Port Chester, Tuckahoe, Orangetown, Piermont, the Town of Greenburgh, Airmont, Clarkstown, Nyack, South Nyack, Upper Nyack, Grandview-on-Hudson, Massapequa Park, Cedarhurst, Laurel Hollow, Lynbrook, Mineola, East Rockaway, Farmingdale, Valley Stream, Freeport, Williston Park, Huntington, Smithtown, Hempstead and Oyster Bay.

"Residents of these eight additional communities now can join the other New Yorkers who have been given an outstanding, superior choice for their video entertainment," said Monica Azare, Verizon senior vice president for New York and Connecticut. "FiOS TV will bring something to consumers they've never had before, with incredible pictures and sound clarity and innovative new services - all from a brand they know and trust.
"Customers who liked what FiOS did for their Internet connection will love what it does for their TV. We've harnessed the speed and capacity of fiber-based broadband with the power of broadcast to create a revolutionary, new entertainment experience," said Azare.
