Verizon opens FiOS DVR control to mobile web

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Mon April 20, 2009

Verizon FiOS DVR Web App

Verizon today expanded its mobile FiOS DVR control to include a web version of its FiOS TV Central feature. Previously only available either as a desktop site or in a native app for certain LG phones like the enV 2 and Voyager, the feature lets any phone with a sufficiently advanced web browser, including non-Verizon devices like the iPhone, remotely program the IPTV recorder with all the same remote features. Owners can manage as many as three individual DVRs, add or delete shows (including Video On Demand) and browse media guides.

Like the original remote control, the new version is free for anyone who has FiOS TV service with a DVR as well as a handheld device with Internet access and a sufficiently capable web browser. It currently exists in a public beta state but should be completed in the near future.
