Although we can't recommend spending the holidays with your face glued to your mobile device's display, we won't blame you if you are a major sports fan. Today Verizon announced the addition of 16 channels to the previously available 25 programmes for out-of-home streaming via its mobile app FiOS. Now you can choose among AXS.tv, beIN SPORT, beIN SPORT Espanol, Bloomberg TV, Cine Sony Television, Cooking Channel, Encore, FEARnet, NFL RedZone (tablet only), SHOWTIME, SHOWTIME EXTREME, Sony Movie Channel, STARZ, Trinity Broadcast, Universal Sports and TVGN (TV Guide Network) as well. The sports season is in swing, so the addition of beIN and NFL Redzone will be welcomed by soccer fans who can follow their favorite leagues, cups and tournaments. And, of course, you can still watch the NFL Network and the Tennis channel when on the move.
Verizon would like to remind you that FiOS TV customers who are FiOS Internet customers can also use their mobile devices and tablets to watch up to 91 live linear national channels at home. In addition, FiOS TV and Internet customers in the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., areas can use their eligible tablets and mobile phones to watch news and weather at home on the local affiliates including CBS and Fox, and the local affiliates of Spanish-language networks such as UniMas and Univision.
FiOS is free and available for Android, iOS and Amazon Kindle devices.
