YouTube video streaming on Fios TV
Verizon is trying to differentiate from the competition by adding YouTube streaming capabilities for their FiOS subscribers. So if you have FiOS and a PC you can stream YouTube content to your TV browsing with the included remote. Some of the features available on the website are also featured here: I will mention full screen option, bookmarking and logging in your YouTube account.
“Adding YouTube and Internet Radio to FiOS TV further expands our customers’ digital home-entertainment world by giving them access to an unprecedented amount of online content on the biggest screen in their home – their TV,” said Shawn Strickland, vice president of consumer strategy for Verizon.
Here is the demo presented once the YouTube feature was implemented:
Verizon is already offering video streaming through Dailymotion, Veoh and Blip.TV and now with YouTube they will sure have a plus. Internet Radio will also be available for Fios TV subscribers: hundred of stations can be accessed and streaming music from a PC to the TV also. Mac users may be dissapointed about this as the solution works on PC’s only.
