FIOS TV gets customizable Nick Jr. TV channel

Verizon’s (S VZ) FIOS TV is the first pay TV provider to get a new, customizable kids TV channel dubbed My Nick Jr. from Viacom in the coming months, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Parents will be able to pick themes like “get creative” to launch a continuous stream of kids shows from the Viacom (S VIA) vault, and kids will be able to rate each show to further personalize their programming. Think Pandora, but with Dora instead of Lorde. Viacom wants to bring the offering to other TV providers after launching it on FIOS.
