Verizon has announced that it will soon retire its FiOS TV app for Xbox consoles. Verizon is alerting users of the app's retirement via email, noting that Xbox One and Xbox 360 users will no longer be able to stream content through the app as of March 31. From the email:
On March 31, 2016, the Fios TV app you are using to watch your Fios TV programming through a Smart TV or Xbox gaming system will be retired and will no longer be available for use. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The email goes on to note that customers should look towards the FiOS mobile apps on iPhone and Android to continue streaming programming — something that will come as little consolation for Windows Phone fans or those looking to keep streaming on the big screen via their Xbox.
