I have Verizon Fios and telephone, but I cannot get the TV because the service is not available in my area. If I have FIOS in my house, I dont understand why i cannot get TV.

Verizon must get approval and licences from each city, county, or other governing body in order to get a "tv franchise". Until then they are not allowed to put in TV. In some area's, the city councils have members that have investments in the competition (like my area here in southern california. the local city council member was also a board member of one of Verizons major competitors and blocked Verizon from getting a licence, until the governor finaly gave Verizon a state wide licence). And in other area's its just normal politics keeping them out or slowing them down. And in other cases, Just like you and me, Verizon has a budget for expansion and may not have the money to expand into those area's yet. TV requres additional equipment other than just the fiber line. Lots of possiblities.
