Verizon Bringing Internet Video To FiOS TV
Beta tests being conducted for functionality upgrade...
offers another look at the upcoming functionality additions Verizon has planned for FiOS TV, including the ability to watch videos from YouTube and Blip.tv. The report notes that from what Verizon has demonstrated so far, it's adding this functionality "without putting up a walled garden to restrict what kinds of YouTube videos are available to watch." The piece also asks Verizon about the possibility of implementing a network DVR (RS-DVR), something the telco says is of interest but so far prevented due to "legal and business" issues. In other words, they want to see if Cablevision's battle against the entertainment industry
heads to the Supreme Court.
