Come out with FiOS Radio and add it to the bundle pack. I would subscribe., I would love to hear Music Choice, XM/Sirius satellite Radio, I Heart Radio, Tune In Radio just like internet radio, but through the FiOS fiber optic network and also include short wave, AM, LW, and FM stations and weather radio. Something to think about adding to the bundle. I like to watch TV, but I listen to the radio in the background. Another set top box for the radio listener. If we had this, then I would not have to miss my music while the TV is on. Some people like to listen to back ground music. And also add a FM transmitter to the set top box without having to always connect to the AUX connector and set any FM transmitter frequency and also add a bluetooth feature and media player from the computer and hard drive and flash drive. Something like a media center box. Just a cool idea since I have been a subscriber and most would like to not always watch TV all of the time. Also add satellite FTA radio stations and public access radio.
I think Verizon should come up with a plan where you pay a set amount every month so that you could watch unlimited On Demand/Flex view movies. The kids love watching movies on the weekends and so do the adults but at the end of the month when the bill is, all those rentals add up. A set amount (ie $20) extra every month added to your bill and you get to watch as many movies you want!!
Verizon clearly has the capability and network to stream more data/video to smartphones. Since I can already log in to my DVR box to control recordings, why not push video that is already recorded back to my phone. It would be one more way Verizon could stay ahead of the competition.
Instead of having us download and install yet another media management application (VZ Media Manager), how about just supporting DLNA, so that existing DLNA servers can work with the FiOS TV box?
Windows Media Player on Windows Vista/7 already provides a DLNA server. I see no real reason why VZ Media Manager is necessary.
I understand Media Manager is required for us to be able to access YouTube on our boxes, but surely that functionality can be broken out into a smaller application that can run as a service on Windows, instead of this giant, memory-hogging thing that must run in the foreground all the time...
So, long story short. I don't have a cable service right now. I don't watch enough TV to support it frankly. What I do have is a Hulu Plus account that streams through my XBox, and that does me just fine. But, I would like something better if it became available.
So I looked at FIOS, and I liked what I saw, but since I live in West Des Moines, the service as a whole isn't available. I really wouldn't want the whole package, I'd just like what's available through the XBox portion.
Have you folks considered putting together a small package that would be available just for XBox customers with no other aspects? (no home box or anything) Because I can't warrant dropping $80 a month for it when I could just go get cable if that's what I really wanted. Something like $20 / month for Xbox access would be perfect, but it doesn't appear that option exists.
I was an avid 1825 music choice, stage and screen listener.. As of late, the format regarding how the songs are aired have changed. The first song will be from a broadway musical. (That's great) The next song will be from the category of a movie soundtrack, which is some abscur music like "the soundtrack from, the Little Rascals Movie" The third song will be from a t.v. theme song such as Batman or another movie soundtrack such as John William's, "Saving Private Ryan"..Before, there were specific times for the 3 different categories. I was able to DVR broadway musicals when aired during those specific times. I now have to listen to, two other songs before I can listen to one that I enjoy.and I also can not DVR.. Please, I'm pleading with you, to bring back the old format. So people, who like to listen to Broadway can and tape it for future listening. Just like those interested in listening fo the movie sound tracks can without interruption, listen and tape those songs when aired. This new format does not make any sense!!!!!!
How can I get my message read by someone????? Or, to whom do I write to with my suggestion????
What happen to Music Choice? They changed to format and made it much less interesting. I see they set the "MC" for Music Choice in huge font and the information about the music too small to read? It's not about advertising your brand, it's about providing a good product.
The Latino Spanish stations are great. My son and I really like the adult and children selections. We also really like listening to the Toddler Music Choice station. I was wondering if there was any way that Verizon could also have a Spanish Toddler Music Choice station. There is so much traditional Spanish music for children and American/English music translated or reworded into Spanish for children out there that I am sure that it would make a great station for native speakers and for children that want to learn the language. Music is an important aspect in all of our lives and I believe that the added bilingual and multicultural elements will just make it even more special.

Music Choice has an ipad app and I downloaded it, assuming that Verizon Fios allowed access to it. NO?!?!?! How is that possible?!?! We have access to all of the premium channels "GO" apps, why not Music Choice? Even no-name cable companies I've never heard of before like Hargray and TCT West, and your major competition of Cox, Comcast, and Time Warner have access!! Any chance we can get Verizon Fios access to this app?
I think there should be an option where you pay so much a month and can rent so many on-demand movies/shows/etc. for that price! Taxing for each movie on-demand is ridiculous. Example: Flex View Package allows you to rent 3 on-demand NEW RELEASE movies + 3 on-demand movies (not new release) + 3 on-demand TV-shows PER MONTH for $19.95 + tax. Flex View NEW RELEASE Package allows you to rent 3 NEW RELEASE Movies PER MONTH for $8.95 + tax. and onward...
