You’re thinking about ordering a premium channel such as HBO®, SHOWTIME® or STARZ. Like any smart consumer, you want to try the product out first before purchasing. No problem, right? Not necessarily – unless of course you’re a Fios TV customer.
This week, we’re launching Free View on Fios TV, an exclusive new feature that lets customers activate their own 48 hour premium channel preview right from their TV. With the click of the remote, Customers can choose which channel they want to preview for free, whenever they want the 48 hour window to start. The Free View content is viewable anywhere whether it’s at home on live TV or on demand, or on the go with the Fios Mobile App.
Free previews of premium TV channels are common, but the timing of them has never been the customer’s choice. With Free View on Fios TV, Customers now schedule a preview at their convenience, when it fits into their schedule. Customers can activate one 48-hour preview of each premium channel once per year.
After all, when you consider purchasing a new car, you don’t wait around for a dealership to spontaneously offer test drives, you just show up when it’s convenient for you. The same should be true for ordering channels like HBO®, SHOWTIME®, Cinemax®, STARZ and EPIX. Now it is.
We believe in giving customers more choice, control and flexibility when it comes to their entertainment experience. Free View is yet another way Fios Customers can get the content they want, when and where they want it – and it’s only on Fios TV.
