On Thursday, Verizon announce the fact that they company introduced updates to their successful service called FiOS TV.
FiOs Custom TV is the name of the new bundle that was brought by the international telecom company. The service by Verizon has become known because of its client oriented features, especially for letting the customer choose what TV channels they want to watch and pay for, and not keeping the ones they have no interest in. The official date of the launch for the FiOS Custom TV is April 19, but the aspects that the service will feature have already been made public. For such a service, a customer will have to pay an amount of 55 dollars a month.
The package includes some of the most relevant networks like CNN, AMC (Walking Dead) or Food Network and even some regional channels. In addition to that, a client who chooses to subscribe to the new service will also have 2 out of a total of 7 channels by Verizon, among which there are Sport, Sports Plus, Pop Culture, Entertainment, Kids, News Info and Lifestyle.
This brief description may sound well the first time, but there are some voices who claim that Verizon`s move is not absolutely according to agreements which by now function. For instance, Verizon`s new service, the FiOS Custom TV was criticized by one of the most important sports network in the entire world, ESPN. Officials talking on behalf of ESPN have affirmed that both ESPN and ESPN 2 must not be restricted from distribution in a separate sport package.
Customers who will choose the new service offered by Verizon will have the chance to modify the composition of their TV bundle on a monthly basis. When it comes to adding more TV packs to the subscription, clients will have to pay an addition 10 dollars price per month. For those who intend to pay a smaller amount of money per month for the FiOS Custom TV service, Verizon will offer them a contract on a period of 2 years. But, if they wish to change the way their TV bundle looks once per month, the price for that process will be more than 10 dollars.
2 year contract clients will also have the chance to subscribe to a combined package of both TV and Internet, according to Verizon. The international telecom company offers channel bundles and a 50 MB per second internet for a monthly price of 75 dollars, let alone other taxes.
