Verizon’s ‘Quantum TV’ Tiers Hit Three More Markets

Verizon Communications’ new high-end FiOS Quantum TV tiers took another leap this week as the telco launched them in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The new Quantum TV tiers feature the Arris-made Verizon Media Server, a whole-home DVR that’s outfitted with six tuners and 1 terabyte of DVR storage that can be paired up with client devices on the home’s coax network. The Premium setup bundles together the functions of two VMSs, giving customers access to 12 tuners and the ability to record a dozen shows at once, and enough storage to record 200 hours of HD video.

FiOS TV currently is available to more than 2.6 million households and businesses in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., Verizon said. Verizon ended the first quarter of 2014 with 5.3 milion FiOS video subscribers and 6.2 million FiOS Internet customers.

Verizon debuted its FiOS Quantum TV offerings last month in Dallas and Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pa., and more recently in Philadelphia, Delaware, and Tampa. Verizon expects to phase it into all other FiOS TV markets over the next few months.
