Although not the first to announce
have officially announced that Samsung Smart TVs
and Blu-ray players
"will be the first consumer electronics manufacturer" to get live HD and video on-demand including Flex View
from Verizon FiOS TV. The embedded release after the break doesn't include a time frame, but the previously announced timeframe was the first half of 2012, so this would have to be released before that in order to, technically, be first -- and everything in a press release is always true. At this point we'd be shocked if the Verizon FiOS TV
App wasn't on every app platform imaginable, other than TiVo
and Google TV
, by the end of 2012.
