Verizon is making it easier to enjoy the ultimate home-entertainment experience with a new promotional savings offer for FiOS TV. New customers who subscribe to FiOS TV between now and Oct. 4 will receive their choice of a year's free use of either a HD DVR or an HD Home Media DVR. Verizon is also offering new FiOS TV customers, or existing customers who upgrade to a bundled package, one free month of HBO and Cinemax, which includes the latest hit movies, documentaries and original programming from more than 25 premium channels and access to hundreds of titles on VOD. New customers who take advantage of this offer will save between $200 and $260 the first year, depending upon the DVR customers choose.
With Verizon's unique Home Media DVR, customers can use one DVR to record programming that can then be watched on up to six other TV sets in the home. This includes viewing up to three separately recorded programs simultaneously on different TV sets, and the ability to pause recorded programming on one set and then continue watching it on another. FiOS TV's Home Media DVR is bundled with Media Manager, a feature that allows customers to access photos and music from their personal computers and play them on their TV or home theater system.
In addition to FiOS TV, Verizon offers FiOS Internet service over its advanced network, with connection speeds as high as up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps) downstream and 20 Mbps upstream.
