California issues Verizon video franchise under new law

California's Public Utilities Commission granted its first state-issued video franchise to Verizon March 8, clearing the way for the company to offer its FiOS TV service to more state residents.

Under the franchise, Verizon can offer FiOS TV in 45 more communities in Southern California. These are in addition to the 18 communities where the service is already available under locally approved franchises.

According to Verizon, it will announce the communities to be first to get FiOS TV under the state-issued franchise. They will include many in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and San Bernardino counties, where construction of its digital all-fiber-optic network is already complete. Verizon will announce more communities as workers finish the network construction in new areas.

Verizon was the first company to file an application for a state-issued video franchise under California's new, video franchise law, which took effect Jan. 1.
