Verizon has announced that FiOS customers with a set-top box (STB) will be able to watch Internet video on their TVs using a menu selection, with no change of equipment or additional hardware.
The move could have an enormous impact on the credibility of Internet video, and the fact that Verizon is prepared to take the step is an indication that it believes that linking the TV and the Internet is inevitable and that refusing to take advantage of its own capabilities to do just that without extra equipment will only throw away a competitive advantage.
