TV As You've Never Experienced It Before: Verizon Brings FiOS Quantum TV Service To The Tampa Bay, Fla., Region

TAMPA, Fla., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For Verizon customers in the greater Tampa Bay area, pay TV changed for the better when Verizon launched FiOS TV in the area in 2005, bringing to customers innovations like interactive widgets and the industry's first multi-room DVR.  Now, the TV-viewing experience for those FiOS TV customers will never be the same as Verizon introduces FiOS Quantum TV (

The new service provides more choices and control, including the ability to record up to 12 shows at once; pause and rewind live TV on any TV in the home; and store up to 200 hours of HD programs.

This advanced TV-entertainment experience -- which was launched in parts of Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties today ( May 6) -- is enabled by enhanced DVR control and storage. With FiOS Quantum TV's Premium DVR Service tier, customers can record up to 12 shows simultaneously, eliminating worries about recording conflicts when customers' favorite shows -- or Rays, Lightning or Buccaneer games -- are all airing at the same time. With the Premium Service's ability to store up to 200 hours of HD programming with its two terabytes of storage space, customers also can easily record and retain entire seasons of their favorite TV shows, giving them more control and more storage to enjoy their content in ways they never could before.

"With FiOS Quantum TV, we've taken a giant leap over our competitors by redefining the total TV-viewing experience for our customers, allowing them to enjoy their entertainment in the ways they want," said Jeanmarie Milla, Verizon's Florida region president for consumer and mass business operations. "FiOS Quantum TV will make you look at TV in a whole new way."

The Tampa Bay area is the latest market where Verizon is bringing FiOS Quantum TV to its customers. The new service was launched recently in North Texas, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and will roll out in phases over the next few months in other markets where FiOS TV is offered.

FiOS TV is available to nearly 1.3 million households and businesses in the Tampa Bay region.

In addition to the Premium Service tier, FiOS Quantum TV features a second advanced tier of DVR service, known as Enhanced. With the Enhanced Service, customers can record up to six shows simultaneously and store up to 100 hours of HD programming with one terabyte of storage space.
