Over at the Verizon at Home blog, I stumbled upon what may be the future of the FiOS TV UI. And it’s (finally) widescreen! Ben Drawbaugh will be pleased. A variety of under-the-hood modifications and development strategies have resulted in a more modular Interactive Media Platform (IMG) for Verizon – who should be able to turn around these platform updates much quicker:
What used to take months is now reduced to several weeks. During 2010 you will see more and more examples of the benefits from this new technology that we have baked into the platform during 2009.
So, in addition to a new 16:9 interface, I’m also optimistic Verizon will tackle the storage situation this year. Stay tuned.
