So I have tried to use the FIOS Olympics widget. Might be ok, if it worked consistently.
Here's my comments:
1) Widget keeps timing out. Either when I just try and launch it or when I try and change from news to schedule. All other widgets work fine and so does VOD. Just to double check, ran In Home agent and it said network is fine.
2) Would be nice if it remembered last thing you looked at on the widget. Meaning why always default to news. I am usually looking for schedule.
3) Why does it only show NBCSN channel in widget? I could understand if they didn't want to show non-Olympics channels.
But tonight I had the TV on local NBC channel (the only channel showing Olympics). When I started up the widget, it would only show NBCSN channel in the window. Which is currently showing a MLS game. Should be able to read guide and see if selected channel is showing Olympics.
Can't imagine these issues can be corrected before Olympics end (except for maybe #1 as it could be a server issue).
So they have 2 years until Winter Olympics to get it right.
