Verizon to Start TV Service in N.Y., Mass.

By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Verizon Communications Inc. is expanding the area where it provides television service over fiber-optic cables, adding homes in Massachusetts and New York for the first time.

The telephone company planned to announce Tuesday that it would immediately start taking orders for its FiOS TV service in Woburn, Mass., and Massapequa Park on New York's Long Island.

FiOS TV is already available in 14 towns in Texas, one in Florida and one in Virginia.

Verizon hasn't specified how many subscribers it has for its TV service so far but said that 20 percent of the homes in Keller, a suburb of Dallas, that were eligible for the service had signed up between the launch on Sept. 22 and the end of the year.
