Most-watched Lists as Social Networking Features: FiOS TV

by Parks Associates | Oct. 28, 2008

Our TV 2.0: The Consumer Perspective study found that certain social-networking-at-the-TV features have good appeal with consumers. Recall the post from earlier today, where I noted that sharing DVR content with and having "most-watched" lists available are two of the most-desired features.
Verizon's FiOS TV service has now implemented a most-watched feature with the FiOS TV 1.6 IMG upgrade. Their "What's Hot on FiOS" feature that shows the top-five shows being viewed at any given time. Since we got the upgrade at our house last weekend, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures. Here's what the "What's Hot" list looks like when you pull it up from the Menu (this was in the 7-8 p.m. primetime slot):

And here is how the "What's Hot" feature looks in the FiOS TV Widgets:

Pretty cool feature. Just think what will be possible when you can view a most-watched list from your inner circle of friends and family.
