Verizon FiOS TV Launches in Pittsburgh

The Steel City is certainly on a roll.

In February, it was football’s coveted Vince Lombardi trophy.

In June, it was hockey’s fabled Stanley Cup.

And today, it’s Verizon’s world-class FiOS TV service.

Verizon has served Pittsburgh for more than a century, but we’re making the largest investment ever in our Pittsburgh communications network to make our FiOS TV service available to every household in the city within six years.

We have been offering FiOS Internet in parts of the city for the past four years, which means we can hit the ground running with FiOS TV service.

FiOS TV offers more than 120 high-definition channels – something the city’s current provider can’t come close to matching – and a host of cutting edge features like a superior interactive media guide, a multi-room DVR, advanced multimedia and remote DVR capabilities, and social widgets like Facebook and Twitter that bring a new level of interactivity to your TV.

Verizon’s Mary Yarbrough talks about FiOS TV in Pittsburgh in the video below.  And we’re Tweeting about FiOS TV in Pittsburgh on Twitter.

Congratulations, Pittsburgh.  You now have a superior choice for cable TV service delivered over a superior network.

The City of Champions deserves nothing less.
