Verizon to Eliminate Analog Tier

Verizon will eliminate its analog tier by the time of the U.S. analog switch off on February 19, 2009. It will start by eliminating its analog tier in New York by April 21. Verizon received a waiver from FCC requirements to provide integrated security set-top boxes on the condition that it convert its offering to 100 percent digital by the analog switch off date.

Verizon has had a very low take up of its analog only offering, so this should not cause a big disruption to its FiOS TV customer base.
