FiOS1 is a group of regional networks available exclusively on Verizon's FiOS TV. These networks provide news, weather, traffic, sports and original programming. The first FiOS1 channel was launched for FiOS subscribers in the Washington metropolitan area (including Maryland and Northern Virginia) on March 31, 2007. On June 22, 2009, two additional networks serving New Jersey and Long Island were launched. Currently three networks exist, but there are plans to expand to additional areas served by FiOS in the future.

These networks include content produced by RNN. In addition the networks also produce their own newscasts. Sports coverage features local high schools and colleges such as Rutgers University, Hofstra University and Princeton University.[1][2]

Current on-air personalities include anchors CJ Papa and Megan Vega; meteorologists Brian Fitzgerald and Jeff Desnoyers; traffic and entertainment reporter Gloria Chapa and numerous other field reporters.

FiOS1 is on Channel 1 in the FiOS TV channel lineup and is available at no extra cost to FiOS TV digital subscribers in the market area. It broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
