One thought on “Verizon FIOS announces Xbox Live TV plans”
  1. Verizon FioS customers only get 26 channels on the XBOX 360 plus they have to pay $89.99/mo for it! This was a great idea to offer service through a gaming device but they should have waited a bit longer before making this service available to their customers. A co-worker at DISH had persuaded me to switch to DISH and I save on average $60 a year on programming and I now have award winning dual tuner receivers that controls two rooms at the same time.
