FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

I am interested in FiOS TV, but not internet because my company pays for my broadband sevice and I can't change it (unless I want to pay for it which I don't).  Can I get FiOS TV and keep my Roadrunner internet?  If so, how does the setup work?  I want to make sure I get the channel guide and VOD.  Do they tap into my current broadband service?  Will I still need the Verizon supplied router to get the channel guide and VOD?  I don't want to disrupt my current setup and want to keep my current wireless router.  Just curious how this would be configured.  By the way, my internet has a dedicated line to that outlet.  The other outlets are currently hooked up to Dish.  Thanks for your help.

Re: FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

yeah it sounds like they would just tap into your dish network/directv feeds, and use THAT cabling instead of the roadrunner internet.   so as long as those TWO services are seperate from one another the fios installer shouldn't have trouble staying away and keeping his grimy mits off of it.    (jk his mits ain't grimy) :robottongue:

Re: FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

Do you know if I would still be able to get VOD and the channel guide without them touching my internet configuration?  I've read that they are IPTV, but wasn't sure if they would need my internet feed or not for that.

Re: FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

they would hook up their own video feed/data feed from the outside box (ONT)   should be fine,  I Wouldn't trust a sales person to be able to answer the more technical questions like that.

Re: FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

That's exactly the info I was looking for.  Thanks.  Do you know if they would just feed the IPTV signal from the ONT to a NIM located perhaps next to the set top box or something?

Re: FiOS TV Without FiOS Internet?

What they would do is come in and hook up the tv service to all your tv's, leaving the internet alone. Then on one of the TV's they would split the cable and hook one end to the tv and the other to a router (you still get a router even if you dont have internet. it will only have access to the tv services, not actual internet). This will allow all your tv's to have full functionality to VOD, Program guide, widgets, and PPV.
