Watching TV On My iPad
I have always thought that the ultimate luxury in mobile entertainment would be lying in bed watching live TV on my iPad. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not averse to curling up on the couch either, but there is something particularly appealing about getting under the covers to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones or to catch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last thing at night.
Sadly, my dream of live bedtime TV has so far been just that – a dream. Until now that is. Earlier this year, Verizon introduced the Mobile FiOS app for iPad and it has literally made my TV dream come true!
All you need for that bedtime TV experience is Verizon FiOS TV and Internet subscriptions, and to be in range of your FiOS router. The Verizon Mobile FiOS app is free to download and currently allows access to over 40 channels, many of them in HD. Channels include HBO, Cinemax, Comedy Central, the Food Network, CNN, Discovery, Lifetime, and many more.
And the Verizon Mobile FiOS app is not just for grown-ups. My kids now borrow my iPad to watch the Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and more. No more fighting over what to watch on the big screen in the family room: just open the Mobile FiOS app, plug in a pair of headphones, and everyone in the house is happy!
You can also use the FiOS Mobile app to program your DVR remotely through your iPad; browse and search TV listings for your favorite shows; and use the iPad as a remote control for your main TV. All this from anywhere in the house you can reach your home network.
I’m no longer tied to the living room or family room when I want to watch my favorite shows. With Verizon FiOS and the Mobile FiOS app, the TV is anywhere I want it to be!
