Verizon the next in line to take aim at Netflix According to Reuters, Verizon will launch a standalone streaming service next year, taking on Netflix and traditional cable providers.
The company is already in talks with prospective partners, and Verizon will launch the service "outside of markets where it currently offers its broadband and TV package (FiOS)."

If accurate, that means the new streaming service will be available to 85 million households.

Unfortunately, the sources say the package will be pretty limited and be more similar to "Starz Play" and "Epix" than a full Netflix-esque offering.

Allegedly, Verizon has been weighing the offering for two years now.
