Verizon continues to build upon their fiber optic network by rolling out 75 HD VOD titles to the following markets; Richmond, Virginia Beach, Tampa, Fort Wayne, and Pittsburgh; and coming soon to Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, and Rhode Island -- everyone else has to wait till sometime next year. There will be a mix of free content and the latest movies (for a fee). FiOS VOD is uniqe in that it is IPTV based, so instead of being delivered via QAM (like the rest of their programming) it shares bandwidth with your Internet connection.
