FiOS launches 75 HD VOD titles, 1000 on slate for '08

Ben Drawbaugh

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.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
