Verizon FiOS Bundles Now Come With 150 New Reasons Not to Settle for Old-Fashioned Cable

There's no reason to settle for clunker cable service when Verizon now offers $150 back on a selection of FiOS double- and triple-play bundles that deliver the ultimate home-entertainment and broadband experience.

Verizon's new promotional offers begin Monday (Sept. 21) and continue through Dec. 31.  In addition to a $150 Visa prepaid card, new customers ordering qualifying bundles also will receive a 24-month price guarantee and a free premium installation.  New FiOS triple-play customers who order qualifying mid-tier and top-tier bundles will receive their choice of HBO and Cinemax movie channels or an International Language Package, at no additional charge for three months.

Existing FiOS customers who add a qualifying new FiOS TV or Internet service also are eligible for the Verizon Visa prepaid card and the two-year price guarantee.  Plus, customers who sign up online get an added $5 a month off their monthly price for voice service for one year.

"With more HD, tons of video on demand, advanced interactive features and superior DVR technology - plus America's top-rated broadband service - FiOS is the smart choice over cable," said John Wimsatt, senior vice president of marketing for Verizon Telecom.  "Our new promotion provides extra incentives to upgrade to FiOS - the only service that's delivered over an all-fiber network, straight to your home."
