Verizon FiOS TV has launched its Flex View platform allowing subscribers access to the telco’s VOD offering outside the home on a variety of portable devices, including laptops, smart phones and tablets.
Initially, users can download for purchase or rent over 1,400 movie titles on Flex View, with the amount of content growing to 2,000 titles by year-end. Subscribers can authorize Flex View on up to five devices per account.
“Verizon is taking the triple play to the triple screen, making on-the-go video programming quick and easy,” said Shawn Strickland, vice president of consumer strategy and planning for Verizon. “This is a valuable extension of our FiOS TV VOD service, enabling customers to rent or purchase video programming and enjoy it anytime, anywhere–even outside of Verizon’s service area.”
