Verizon FiOS Demos Live TV Streaming on the iPad

A glimpse of the future, folks. Verizon today is showing off a new FiOS app for the iPad that can stream live TV from your home’s FiOS TV set-top via Wi-Fi. The app also includes a “What’s Hot” dashboard of trending shows that updates every 5 minutes. The use case scenario Verizon envisions is that you’ll be able to watch a channel on your mobile device(s) that’s different than what’s currently being shown on the television in the living room. Now the bad news. No date has been set for the new service to launch and remote access may come at a premium. Verizon is currently negotiating with content providers for the rights to stream their TV shows to other screens aside from the TV. [via / via]
