How do you get your high-definition TV?
Apparently, a lot more of you have steered toward Verizon’s Fios TV service. The company announced on Monday that it surpassed the one million subscriber mark in January (it passed the mark for its Internet service last June).
That makes Verizon the 10th largest cable provider in the U.S., the company says, a little bit behind No. 9 Mediacom Communications.
The service is available in parts of California, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Virginia. Unfortunately not my part of Massachusetts.
Well, maybe it’ll get to my home sometime this year, in which Verizon says it has a goal of “providing 150 HD channels by the end of 2008.”
Let us know what you think of Verizon compared with other cable companies’ service or satellite service.
