Verizon's FiOS App Now Enables Direct TV Streaming To iPad

Verizon's FiOS fiber network won't ever be as large as we would've liked, but if you're in one of the lucky states that has access, there's great news to be shared. Well, if you're also an iPad owner. The updated version of Verizon's FiOS mobile app now includes a feature that was seemingly slated for launch, but was scraped somewhere along the way: live TV streaming, directly to the tablet. Those who subscribe to FiOS' pay-TV service can now stream 75 channels right to their iPad, so long as you're connected to your home Wi-Fi access point. That means you won't be able to stream it over 3G while on a vacation in Europe (or even down the street), but you've got to start somewhere, right?

The update also makes a change in the remote control pairing process and adds iOS 6 support. Looks like Thanksgiving just got a lot better for FiOS + iPad owners.
