I noticed that many new TVs are coming out with widgets similar to what FIOS has to offer. For example, Panasonic has a Skype widget.
Since the FIOS box already has a USB input, why not add Skype to the Widgets lineup? The customer could then plug in their camera into the USB input in order to get video.
Furthermore, perhaps allowing the customers to play games and interact more with other FIOS customers across the country.
Only problem is that Verizon did not purchase boxes with USB - it is a cost extra option from Motorola. Only use for the USB connectors is as a charger (the +5V is connected).
I think this is a good idea, however the only way I see them being able to implement this effectively is by offering supplementary peripherals you'd buy from Verizon.
just to further elaborate on this idea, Samsung has a new line of TVs with thousands of apps (some even available for purchase). the apps range from educational to entertainment, etc...
imagine this for a FIOS commerical:
young kids sitting at home during a snow storm using skype and playing checkers/scrabble/chess via FIOS TV with grandma who is in sunny Florida.
additionally, this will help consumers save money by NOT buying a new TV with the apps, as the same (or similar) apps will be available on the FIOS box...
time is short on pulling the trigger on this one.....
that's great Joe, thanks... can't wait to see these new features (but for some reason, I'm anticipating a roll-out of this in early 2012)....
While I use Skype extensively to communicate with others in the US and the world, why can't FIOS build an app like Skype so I can communicate directly through my FIOS service using my laptop/tablet/phone? More specifically, when my FIOS phone rings, why can't I just answer the phone with my computer?
