Last month, Verizon got the go-ahead from the Fairfax County, Virginia supervisors to offer TV service. Yes, this is one of the first instances of the “triple-play” strategy, where a single provider aims to deliver phone, Internet, and television service all over a single connection.
Verizon calls its service “FiOS”, which relies on fiber-optic connections instead of copper cable to carry digital signals to and from your home. The company will offer streaming and on-demand programming. FiOS is already available in Keller, Texas, where subscribers get 330 channels from the service.
