Verizon Communications said it has extended out-of-home access to five networks from the Fox family through its authenticated FiOS Mobile App: FX HD, FXX HD, FX Movie Channel, National Geographic Channel HD and Nag Geo WILD HD.
Those additions, which arrive after Verizon secured those rights through Fox, extend the out-of-home channel count for the FiOS Mobile App to 93. FiOS TV subs can also tap the TV Everywhere app to watch 168 linear TV networks (plus some local channels, which vary by region) when attached to their home networks. The app also provides access to more than 80,000 on-demand titles, according to Verizon.
Verizon added 24 live TV channels from Viacom to the app's out-of-home lineup in January.
The FiOS Mobile App currently runs on iOS and Android devices and Kindle Fire tablets. Verizon ended 2014 with 5.64 million FiOS video subs.
