Verizon tells what to expect from FiOS TV in the future

During a media briefing in Washington, Gear Live got a few details on what Verizon plans next for its FiOS TV service (beyond continuing its inexorable spread that we track weekly, of course.) No details or additional pics on the 1080p VOD packing, widescreen HD menus peeped earlier, but they did confirm 1080p is "a couple of software revisions away." In the nearer future, expect Facebook and Twitter widgets that key into what you're watching, plus video streaming in the home media manager and the possibility of Slingbox-style streaming from FiOS TV Central, once the appropriate agreements are signed, of course.
