Verizon FiOS TV app heading to Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players

Samsung has announced that its 2012 lineup of Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray players will be getting Verizon's FiOS TV app. This means that if you're a FiOS TV subscriber, you will be able to access the service directly from your new Samsung connected device. There's no need for the additional set-top box.

With your FiOS TV subscription and your 2012 Samsung Smart TV or Smart Blu-ray player, you'll get instant access to 26 live TV channels, including HD channels. You'll also be able to access more than 10,000 video-on-demand titles through Verizon's Flex View service, which delivers on-demand content to TVs, PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

Samsung has also announced integrating DIRECTV, once again eliminating the need for additional set-top boxes.
