For Sunday nights when "Game of Thrones," "Mad Men" and "The Good Wife" are competing for your attention, there's Verizon's FiOS Quantum TV.

The cable service, which launched here Tuesday, allows viewers to record up to six or 12 shows simultaneously, depending on tier. In addition, 100 or 200 hours of HD programming are possible with one and two terabytes of storage space, respectively. Setting up one next-generation set-top box will allow users to have DVR functionality in other rooms; they'll be able to record content from other televisions for playback anywhere in the house.

FiOS Quantum TV debuted nationally last week in north Texas and Harrisburg. FiOS service has been in the Pittsburgh area since 2007, available to nearly half a million households and businesses. In the city, it will be available to all neighborhoods by fall 2015.

A $24.99 upgrade fee, plus tax, will be charged to existing subscribers. For new customers with five televisions, there is a $10 and $20 per-month bump over the traditional multiroom DVR service.
