FiOS Opens Up Remote DVR Scheduling

Verizon is giving all FiOS TV DVR customers the ability to manage recordings via the Web, and now will let Home Media subscribers access their DVRs from non-Verizon wireless handsets.

The telco introduced the remote-management feature in January, but initially it was available only to Home Media DVR subs.

No major U.S. cable operators currently offer remote DVR scheduling, a feature touted by DirecTV, Dish Network and AT&T U-verse TV.

The wireless application for Home Media DVR subscribers is available at Customers already using the wireless application with Verizon Wireless LG EnV2, LG Chocolate 2 or LG Voyager handsets can still access the remote DVR programming feature as they did before.
