Verizon FiOS TV
customers now have a new tool to augment their TV viewing experience, with the launch of the new FiOS TV Central Web site
. The site allows customers to use any desktop or laptop computer to review their local TV schedules and information about VOD and pay-per-view offerings. Soon, customers will also be able to use the site to program their DVR, among other features.
The site offers a number of options for reviewing FiOS TV
- A home page that offers select VOD trailers and featured titles; a listing of the night's primetime programs; regularly updated lists of the top-watched TV shows and top-purchased VOD titles; and links to each area of the site, including a help page.
- TV listings with a local channel schedule for the next 14 days and the ability to filter by categories (day, channel or time; kids, sports or high-definition programming; or movies).
- VOD titles and listings with information on each title and the ability to filter by categories (genre, rating, expiration date or price/free).
Verizon plans to add features to the site later this year that will allow customers to control their DVRs and set up and modify recordings remotely. Customers also will be able to order VOD programming and other content and manage parental controls, among other capabilities.
The FiOS TV Central site can be accessed at www.verizon.com/fiostvcentral
. Current customers can use their Verizon Central usernames and passwords to log in. Consumers who have not yet subscribed to FiOS TV
can access the site's homepage to gather information about all that the service has to offer.
