New Verizon Local Cable Channel Coming to NYC

In order to compete with local news channels like Time Warner Cable's NY1 and Cablevision's News 12, Verizon's FiOS is rolling out its own local news channel FiOS1 to New York City subscribers this summer. The channel will have traffic reports and weather every ten minutes and reports shot by citizen journalists. A professional news team has yet to be hired.

Local channels offered by Verizon in Maryland and Northern Virginia rank in the top 20% by viewers.
