Verizon's "Flex" Will Download Premium Video to Apple Devices in "Early" 2011

Subscribers to Verizon FiOS TV now have the abiilty to download a range of premium video to rent or buy onto several devices including Windows PC's, theBlackberry Storm2, HTC HD2, Motorola Droid 2 and Droid X.

Unlike offerings of Comcast which allows subscribers to stream programming, a program referred to as "TV Everywhere" -- the Verizon program could be called "TV Anytime." 

(Comcast introduced live streaming to the iPad last month.)

The program, called Flex View, debuted last month throughout the United States.

In an interview with Beet.TV, Joe Ambeault, Verizon's Director of Consumer Product Development, says that the service will be available on Mac OS and iOS devices "early" next year. 

He says that Flex works on non-Verizon mobile devices.

Ambeault speaks about having solved DRM issues.  He says that in the future, some form of Flex will be available to consumer who aren't subcribers to the home TV service.
