FiOS TV Expands in Fla.


Verizon Communications Inc. launched its Verizon FiOS TV service in southern Manatee County, Fla., Wednesday.

The regional Bell operating company launched the video service in neighboring Temple Terrace Dec. 6.

FiOS TV is available to Verizon customers in an area of Manatee County bordered by University Parkway to the south, to neighborhoods just north of the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, then running laterally from the coast to Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, Verizon said.

The telco also announced that Sun Sports and FSN Florida have joined its Tampa Bay-area programming lineup.
