Washington, D.C. (October 7, 2008) -- Verizon's FiOS yesterday added 57 new High-Definition channels to its lineup in the North Texas area.

The telco says it's now offering 87 HD channels in Texas -- more than rival cable operators -- and 700 HD VOD titles each month.

The new HD channels added in Texas include 13 versions of HBO,
11 different Cinemax channels and 13 different channels of Showtime, the Movie Channel and Starz.

Verizon's Texas customers will now also get the high-def versions of Animal Planet, TLC, Science Channel, Smithsonian Channel, CNN, CNBC, Lifetime, Bravo, TBS, History Channel, Weather Channel, USA and Sci Fi.

"
Verizon will continue expanding its FiOS TV channel lineup this year, with a major focus on HD content. By year-end, Verizon plans to offer all available major HD programming," the company said in a statement.

Verizon is also offering a year's free use of either an HD DVR or an HD Home Media DVR to consumers who sign up for FiOS TV by Oct. 31.

Earlier this year, FiOS expanded its high-def lineups in New York, New Jersey, Washington state and a few other markets to around 100 HD channels. The telco is expected to offer more high-def channels in more markets in the coming months.
