TV Everywhere

Message 1 of 12 (9,923 Views)

This question doesn't regard IMG 1.9 but I was curious as to when Verizon would roll out it's version of TV Anywhere to the iPad and plethora of devices. I'm sure you guys have your hands full with IMG 1.9 but during the summer it was stated that the ability would be rolled out in early 2011 along with IMG 1.9.

We'll expect to add devices across the entire year... but for instance you can already download Watch ESPN from the Apple App store to view live ESPN channels... more of those coming.

And would it be possible for Verizon to just add VOD streaming into it's app's while it readies the streaming of Live TV?

That's actually the plan... On Demand content first on consumer electronics devices... then live TV... of course like all plans it could change as we learn more.

And one more question that I'm doing to know the answer for -- I have all new STB's (the QIP7232 and the QIP 7100 P2) These boxes all have USB ports; what are they for? I did notice they are inactive.

Joe would you happen to know if Verizon would add RF capability to any of it's STB's? The line-of-sight IR sometimes doesn't work too well for me and makes me want to throw the remote out of the window sometimes. It's the one feature that really makes me want to go back to DirecTV.

And I have tried out several IR extender's and I don't really like the aftermarket solutions. I'd prefer something discreet like the RF being integrated into the box. Or an official add-on from Verizon.

Do you mean the remotes or the apps?

One more question before the session ends -- what's the status on Verizon's transition to IPTV. There's many rumors about Verizon having no more QAM space.
