Verizon to offer IPTV over FIOS

Verizon, the provider of my phone and Internet, is soon to be offering IPTV – TV
over the Internet – to those using FIOS.

Hopefully,
I shall subscribe to this service as soon as it rolls out 2005/2006 and dump
traditional analogue cable TV provided by Comcast.

Using my computer as my DVR (currently
using Windows Media Center 2005), I should be able to record direct from an IPTV feed
in pure digital format. The best part is that HDTV will be available in MCE
with no conversion process or set top box. 

I see the purchase of a 50″
flat screen LCD in my near future, taking advantage of that lovely HD signal.

I am very
excited.
