Verizon has launched two products that fall into what it is calling the "social TV" service category: the Widget Bazaar application store and Internet Video on TV.
The latter is a collection of widgets that Verizon has developed in conjunction with Facebook Connect, Twitter, ESPN, Veoh, Blip.tv, and Dailymotion that let FiOS TV subscribers connect with others while watching TV. For example, the Twitter widget lets FiOS TV subscribers follow tweets related specifically to the program they are watching.
Whatever the complaints about the service it is a great start--a great leap from one media silo to another. Look for more of this sort of innovation.
I'd be curious to know what the TOU/EULA is.
