New York – Samsung Electronics America said Monday that a FiOS TV app now supports 75 live channels and is available for compatible Samsung 2011 and 2012 Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray players.
Samsung said the app, which was initially released in July on the Samsung Smart Hub platform, allows Verizon’s FiOS TV and FiOS Internet subscribers to watch 75 live FiOS TV channels and more than 25,000 FlexView on-demand movies and TV shows on compatible TVs and Blu-ray players without the need for a set-top box.
FiOS subscribers with TV and Internet subscriptions can download the free FiOS TV app on compatible Samsung Smart devices without requiring a secondary set-top box. For those who already have installed the app it will automatically update when launched.
The expanded channel lineup included CNN, Comedy Central, Disney, Fox Business, Cinemax, MTV, Spike, HBO, TBS, TNT, Food Network and HGTV, based on the subscribers’ current FiOS TV package.
The FiOS TV application has parental control features, closed captioning, help and FAQs.
