Verizon gets into everything, donâ€™t they?. The last being their own TV Widgets offering called Widget Bazaar. This is a supplemental service for Verizon FIOS users and you will start with 40 widgets that include the obvious social onesÂ like Twitter and Facebook or even online media content from blip.tv, veoh and dailymotion.
There are several limitations:
1.-Only one user profile can be used (multi-profile support to come)
2.-No Widget Platform planned at the moment, Verizon will provide whatever widgets they think you should get. no schedule specified for updates.
3.-No YouTube and No Hulu of course
The other limitation is that unlike Vizio, the widgets are read only since you donâ€™t have a proper remote to interact with the widgets in a full way. this could or could not change in the future based on the success of the Widget Bazaar. but expect having to pay a fee to change of Remote if the option is added.
A good supplemental service for those already lucky you to be able to have FIOSâ€™s (unlike me, that my triple play service sucks compared to that)Â and that you can ask or active now.
