Verizon FiOS cable tv coming to NYC: Can you see me now?

Look for Verizon to start infiltrating select NYC neighborhoods in the “coming weeks” while they deploy their fiber-optic network. The telco giant has received approval from the New York State Public Service Commission to start selling its FiOS cable TV service in New York.

As Verizon FiOS is 100% fiber-optic all the way to your home, expect the transition to take some time. It would seem Time Warner Cable, Cablevision and RCN have some time before they start actually losing customers.
