Verizon CFO Fran Shammo recently reported that the company’s “Custom TV” skinny bundle was proving to be a success.
One-third of new FiOS video subscribers have signed up for the service. Shammo said that Custom TV “…will improve our profitability from a programming standpoint. Our customers are only paying for they want to view, and we’re only paying our content providers for what our customers want to view.”
The question now remains: how many consumers will get access to FiOS and the luxury of this a la carte programming?
