Verizon called today...we are part of a VIP group to be among the first to get FIOS TV!! Next Saturday! WOO-HOO. I'm so excited--I've been waiting for months. We'll get a package of TV (including HDTV! and a TiVo! 155 channels!) with three receivers, telephone with unlimited long distance, and internet for $139. I think that's a pretty good deal. They need somebody home to install or it could have been done next Wednesday, and as excited as I am, I don't think it's worth a vacation day.
Summer is not my high-TV-watching-time...but I will enjoy the savings on the package!
