As the nation’s capital, residents of Washington, D.C. – and their neighbors in Maryland and Virginia – cherish their freedoms. Well, starting today Verizon FiOS TV customers in this “Potomac region” can enjoy a new freedom – freedom from tuner hogging and DVR hoarding.

Our new FiOS Quantum TV service offers an innovative entertainment experience, giving people the freedom to control their TV, not vice versa. The advanced TV service provides more choices and control; includes the ability to record up to 12 shows at once; allows viewers to pause and rewind live TV on any TV in the home; and offers storage of up to 200 hours of high-def programs.

A video and additional information about FiOS Quantum TV can be viewed in our  original blog. Photos of the new equipment used with FiOS Quantum TV can be viewed here.

Initially launched in the region in Herndon, Va., in late 2005, FiOS TV currently is available to more than 2.6 million homes and businesses in parts of D.C., Maryland and northern, central and eastern Virginia.

FiOS Quantum TV service debuted on April 1 in the Dallas/Fort Worth market and has expanded to the Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia/Delaware and Tampa markets. We’ll continue to bring the service to more FiOS TV markets in the coming weeks.

Our recent survey of 1,000 Americans who told us they want more features, functions and choice with their TV viewing experience offers insight about what people want, and speaks to why we’re offering FiOS Quantum TV. Take a look.

We welcome your comments about the service, and how you like to view your favorite programs. On Twitter, use the hashtag #FiOSQuantumTV when sharing your input.
