Verizon has announced that new and existing Fios customers who sign a two-year contract for a triple-play bundle will get a free year of Netflix.

Verizon will subsidize up to $10.99 worth of the SVOD service for one year, provided subscribers pony up for an $80-a-month bill for TV, wireline internet and landline phone for two years. 

Customers can access Netflix via channel 238 on their program guide.
