Verizon Fios offers a unique way to watch TV and surf the web on your own time. While Verizon still offers a few traditional package options, it now also offers a variety of customized Fios TV and Internet services. The concept is simple: choose any Fios TV plan and then customize it with your preferred Internet and phone service plans.
Now that on-demand video streaming is so common, cable and fiber companies are rethinking their services and pricing. As a result, more and better TV and Internet packages are always being offered. Verizon Fios is no different. New clients can now create a personalized TV and internet package with the features and channels they desire.
Verizon Fios TV offers a basic channel lineup that is based on seven different tiers. Verizon only provided two TV bundles last year: Essential and Sports & More. Each pack has a different number of channels. When Essential first began, it had 35 channels. The packs were later expanded to include 125 channels, 190 channels with Essential, and 160 channels with Sports & More. Verizon has once again considerably increased its Custom Fios TV plan possibilities.
