Verizon Challenges Comcast in Washington County Pay TV Market

Date: 12/14/2007 1:15:57 AM

Verizon Communications quietly turned on its FiOS TV service in parts of Washington County, Oregon this week, giving customers in the area an alternative to cable television incumbent, Comcast.

The presence of another payTV provider will allow viewers to choose between different subscription plans and channel lineups, competing Video On Demand libraries, and varying levels of HDTV programming. The monthly cost of cable TV, however, isn’t likely to change much, according to Washington County’s cable regulator.

“Rates probably will not fall (but) they may be constrained,” commented regulatory affairs manager, Fred Christ, of the Metropolitan Area Communications Commission.

Even without a big drop in rates though, competition is sure to benefit subscribers. Verizon is offering dozens more channels, and more highdefinition content than Comcast, in a standard package costing around $48 – that’s $3 cheaper than its cable rival’s most popular package.

Verizon and Comcast have been competing nationally for a greater share of the regional telecommunications and video market ever since Comcast launched its own digital telephone service two years ago.
