Verizon’s Live TV Streaming & 5G Coming This Year
Verizon hopes to launch 5G in three to five US markets by the end of the year. Then in 2019, they will start rolling it out to other areas of the country.
Verizon will also launch a new live streaming service in the latter part of 2018 in the same 5G markets. This means that the rest of us will need to wait until 5G makes it into our area before we can start using their live streaming option. The company is keeping details under wraps, and claim to be taking their time to “do it right.”
A Complex New System
According to Matt Ellis, CFO of Verizon, the infrastructure is in place, and they are carefully rolling-out this expansive new technology. A soft-launch will ensure they can get all the kinks out before going nationwide.
