Take TV with you to the bathroom, thanks to streaming FiOS iPad app
The secret’s out.
But Verizon is to officially announce on Tuesday that 75 live FiOS TV channels, among them HBO, Cinemax, HGTV, Nickelodeon, Fox News and MSNBC, will be available for in-home streaming via Wi-Fi to FiOS subscribers to iPads, spokesman Harry Mitchell said Monday night.
An updated Verizon Mobile App makes streaming to iPads possible directly from your home router without PC or Mac software. So you’re mobile, but that mobility ends in your driveway. Still, it’s cool. You don’t have to stop watching TV when you go to the bathroom! My kids will be putting this technology to use immediately.
The app is available in Apple’s App Store. It only works with high-def set top boxes, though.
