Verizon Communications said FiOS TV and FiOS Internet subs rose in the first quarter, while FiOS voice additions slowed during the period.

Verizon, which just introduced a new Custom TV package that has drawn some pushback from ESPN, added 90,000 FiOS TV subs, up from 57,000 in the year-ago period. It ended the period with 5.73 million FiOS TV subs.

The company complemented that by tacking on 133,000 FiOS Internet customers, up from 98,000 in the year-ago period, extending that total to 6.74 million.
