Another N.Y. Franchise for Verizon


The village of South Nyack, N.Y., followed Nyack’s lead Tuesday night.

The South Nyack Village Board of Trustees voted to award a video franchise to Verizon Communications Inc. for its Verizon FiOS TV service.

Fellow New York state communities Nyack and Massapequa Park approved Verizon FiOS TV franchises Monday and Sept. 26, respectively.

Verizon has also obtained video franchises in California, Virginia, Florida and Massachusetts, as well as a state-issued franchise in Texas to provide service in 21 communities in that state.

Verizon FiOS TV launched in Keller, Texas, Sept. 22.
