Subscribers to the Verizon FiOS TV and internet service as well as the Xbox One’s Xbox Gold program will find no less than a full-fledged app for the service. This means that users will be able to browse 74 live channels with next-generation console as easy as it would be to tap with any other app. This release is being pushed right this minute to the Xbox One.
The full Verizon FiOS TV app will work with the Syfy HD channel, Animal Planet, AMC HD, and Lifetime HD. Channels like HBO HD will bring on Game of Thrones while Discovery HD will bring Mythbusters. This app also works with a user interface that’s extremely similar to that of the rest of the standard Microsoft-made Xbox OS.
You’ll find that you will need an Xbox Live Gold account membership as well as a subscription to Verizon’s FiOS TV and internet to make this whole setup happen. While the app itself is free, subscription fees do apply.
With Verizon’s FiOS internet rolling in at 50/25 Mbps to 500/100Mbps, these channels will be just as reliable as the service itself. While not every resident of the United States has Verizon FiOS available to them, the service is also spreading – if it’s not ready for you now, it probably will be soon.
