On Monday, Verizion introduced a DVR to accompany its fiber-optic cable service, FiOS. The DVR comes in two varieties, standard and Multi-Room, which can send recorded content to up to three televisions in a household. Verizon has also launched Media Manager, a software which works with either DVR to send content from a networked PC (using FiOS Internet service) to a television. The product launch is a part of Verizon’s larger FiOS initiative to compete with other media providers such as Comcast through a network of fiber-optic cable that will ultimately replace their current copper cable network. Verizon estimates this effort will cost $20 billion by 2010. The DVR service will cost customers $19.95 per month plus $3.95 for the initial purchase of the set-top box.
