Verizon FiOS TV app update streams 75 channels to iPad

updated 05:17 am EST, Thu November 22, 2012

Streaming channels, improved pairing added to iPad app

Verizon has updated its FiOS Mobile iPad [Free, App Store] app adding channel streaming to the mobile device. The latest version of the app now offers 75 channels to be streamed live from anywhere on the home network, as well as improvements to the process used to set up the iPad as a remote control, and other improvements.

The channel streaming brings the iPad in line with the Samsung and Xbox apps, allowing users to view channels such as FOX, HBO, and BBC America from the tablet. Users are required to subscribe to both FiOS TV and Internet for access, can only view live channels that are part of the TV subscription package, and must be used on the home network itself. Scheduling recordings on a DVR can also be performed, and does not have the local-network-only requirement.

The update can be downloaded from iTunes today, and requires a device running iOS 5.1 or later.
