In January of 2012, a partnership between Samsung and Verizon was announced. The partnership was formed to join Samsung’s new FiOS TV app on both Samsung’s smart TVs and Blu-ray players with Verizon access without needing a separate box.
Verizon FiOS provides Internet, telephone and television service using the state-of-the-art Verizon network. Bundling is now available on the new FIOS TV app developed by Samsung. A user can have both his Samsung and his Verizon on one machine.
The Samsung and Verizon partnership gives users 75 television channels and Flex View. By giving FiOS viewers video on demand access, Samsung has put itself in the forefront of FiOS apps that offer TV and movies on demand along with Verizon service. There are over 25,000 Flex View movies and TV on demand. The Flex View app can be downloaded using Samsung FiOS TV. Once downloaded, the app will update itself when launched.
Not a FiOS customer? Don’t worry, new customers can save on their FiOS bundles with a Verizon FiOS promo code 2013.
The partnership news was announced in July by Eric Anderson who is vice president of product solutions and content with Samsung Electronics America. The news of the TV platform followed on LG’s announcement in November that it had 75 channels with on demand movies on its machines.
