Verizon has added its FiOS TV service in nine more New Jersey areas, giving residents the option of television programming from the fiber-optic provider. Verizon’s HD offerings reached 100 in Northern New Jersey recently, giving satellite providers DIRECTV and DISH some competition in the hi-def market.
The added cities and towns include the city of Camden, the city of Paterson, Salem and Elsinboro in Salem County, Leonia in Bergen County, Hainesport in Burlington County, Secaucus in Hudson County, and North Plainfield and Watchung in Somerset County. The additions bring the number of cities and towns where Verizon offers FiOS to 304 in New Jersey.
“FiOS TV gives consumers in these New Jersey communities an outstanding and superior alternative for their video entertainment,” said Mark Adams, marketing director for Verizon’s New Jersey region.
Verizon still offers a promotion where if you sign up before October 4 you get a free HD DVR for a year and one month of free month of HBO and Cinemax. Their Home Media DVR system allows the playback of recorded programs on up to six additional televisions in the home.
