    Verizon FiOS Mobile on Android and iOS can now stream live TV from anywhere

    The shackles have been officially removed. If you're using FiOS Mobile on Android or iOS, then you're aware the app's live TV streaming feature has only worked while being connected to one's own home network.

    Beginning today, though, Verizon will allow FiOS TV subscribers to view real-time content even when away from their humble abode, via the FiOS Mobile Android and iOS applications.

    The number of networks supported is pretty short, with only nine being onboard at the moment -- this includes the Travel Channel, BBC America, BBC World News, EPIX, HGTV, DIY, Tennis Channel and, on the iPad, the NFL Network. But, as they say, you've got to start somewhere, and chances are this channel lineup will become more robust in the weeks ahead.

    I tried to watching via this app away from my home and can only get about nine channels as opposed to well over 50 when I am at home. Do you have to be near your own home router to be able to view all of the channels available or do you have to link up some other way? I am using a Kindle Fire maybe it's limited away from my home router?

    Thanks. I found out later that it only supports up to 9 channels away from your home. It's nice to have at home but kinda useless on the road unless you really like one of those 9 channels. Maybe someday it will be expanded to every available channel.
