Verizon FiOS Mobile on Android and iOS can now stream live TV from anywhere

The shackles have been officially removed. If you’re one of the many folks using FiOS Mobile on Android or iOS, then you’re aware the app’s live TV streaming feature has only worked while being connected to one’s own home network. Beginning today, though, Verizon will allow FiOS TV subscribers to view real-time content even when away from their humble abode, via the FiOS Mobile Android and iOS applications. The number of networks supported is pretty short, with only nine being onboard at the moment — this includes the Travel Channel, BBC America, BBC World News, EPIX, HGTV, DIY, Tennis Channel and , on the iPad, the NFL Network. But, as they say, you’ve got to start somewhere, and chances are this channel lineup will become more robust in the weeks ahead.
