As spotted by FierceCable in a Netflix customer support page, Verizon Fios has for the first time integrated Netflix with 3 of its set-top boxes. Now, Fios customers will have native access to Netflix from directly within the cable interface, do not need a smart TV’s built-in app or a streaming TV stick.
Before Verizon, Comcast and Dish had integrated Netflix into cable boxes. Apparently, Verizon is running Netflix service as a trial and hasn’t officially announced the launch. As reported by FierceCable, Netflix spokesperson said, “Yes, we are currently testing new advanced TV features with a select group of employees and customers.”
