I just read in another forum that Verizon will soon be adding another one of Byron Allen's waste of valuable QAM space .tv channels, Legacy.tv. Why??????? ARE YOU PEOPLE NUTS?!?! Do you honestly care what your viewers want? It’s very obvious you do not. I understand the need for diversity, I can see carrying a couple of these .tv channels, what I don’t understand and never ever will is WHY you need to carry now SEVEN .tv channels!?!? Each of those channels spend well over than half of their broadcast days showing nothing but commercials and Infomercials (most of which are in Standard Definition and unbelievably LOUD) and the rest of the time showing the same programs over and over and over and over.. So now we have SEVEN channels of this nonsense!!!!!
Instead of wasting QAM space on channels nobody watches, how about giving us the channels we have been begging for!!!!!!!!!
I would love to know how much we subscribers are paying (wasting) for these .tv channels.
Do what your subscribers want, add the channels we have been begging for (and voting for though I don't know what good that does, Legacy.tv proves that!!!!!!!!!!!!!) here in these forums and don't give us these garbage channels NOBODY watches.
With the technology that fios uses(networking the router with the set top boxes) there should be a lot more data capabilities, at least with the 500G DVR. A simple application and an installed web cam is all you need to video chat. I mean, imagine watching TV and a message pops up in the corner "video chat request from John Doe-Accept or Deny" All you guys have to do is utilize the technology you already have. You guys waste your time with all of those useless widgets! How about expanding it, more like an app store and having way more variety there for the consumer. Have a home page with apps when you turn on your TV. I can choose fios TV or Pandora or Netflix, etc. Oh BTW, why is there no Netflix widget? How a bout an internet browser? Give us more data interaction with the TV so fios can really set itself above the competitors!
I recently rented a 3D movie on FiOS On Demand. Two out of four people who watched the movie, myself included, are hearing impaired. I tried to enable captioning but eventually realized that the movie was not captioned. When I contacted Verizon, I was told that none of their 3D movies are captioned. I would like to know why isn't in violation of FCC rules, and if there are plans to caption these movies in the near future. It is upsetting that I was unable to watch a movie that I paid $7.99 for, and now I know I will not be able to watch any 3D movies since apparently the only movies with captioning are on HBO.
Not sure what happens when a channel provider changes the channel name and programing, but please keep Fox Sports 1 when Speed Network turns into Fox Sports 1 in August. I really need my St. Johns and Seton Hall basketball games! Thanks for reading my suggestion!
I use your fios tv app on my samsung smart tv as an alternate way to get Fios tv service since I dont like wires running around. Only problem is not all channels are available, if more channes are added it would be great. Also, buffering is present during the night time with only fios tv app.
I live in Toms River and I'm a new customer to Fios. I'm so disappointed to find out that Eagle games are not available in my area however they are availble in Forked River a couple towns over. PLEASE ADD THE EAGLE GAMES AS A LOCAL CHANNEL.

I'd like to see a larger selection natiowide of RSN's in your sports packages in HD. How about the Root Sports channels, Comcast Sports Networks, and Fox Sports Networks (Fox Sports South, Fox Sports North, Fox Sports Ohio, etc). Thanks.
For FiOS TV we selected the package that had the channels we really wanted, but it includes a bunch of "special" channels that we have no interest in. (MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, NHL Network) The only sport we follow at the college and professional level is lacrosse. I would rather trade these other special sports channels all in for CBS Sports Network, which carries the sport.
Going on the popularity of BBC America (shows like Top Gear & Dr Who are massive hits), there's an obvious
common interest in British TV.
There's also a lot of British Ex-Pats in the US (esp in Florida) who pay huge sums of money to subscribe to
VPN services that let them view TV streams form the UK.
I think it would be a great idea to add one or more UK TV channels (ITV, Channel 4, BBC1 & 2 etc) to your lineup. These could either be individual subscriptions like the other foreign channels you offer or even a British TV bundle.
I am aware that certain channels like BBC America and BBC Amerca HD are offered on the Select HD, Extreme HD, and Ultimate HD packages but not on the Prime HD package. I do not understand why the lower Select HD package recieves certain channels but the Prime HD doesn't and then the even higher packages do. I thought the channel offerings would carry over from package to package. I do remember in the past the Prime HD package did offer some channels that are no longer offered. I would like to bring it back or at least have BBC America back in the Prime HD package. That would be greatly appreciated.
I really love the FiOS service that you guys provide, it is one of the best cable services available. I feel that the Video On Demand content volume is rather lacking though. I had been a long time Comcast Cable customer and I must say I really r miss the Video On Demand library that they had. It was quite expansive and always had a big allotment of shows to watch with almost entire seasons of shows available for Free with subscription. Is this something you guys could work on? Please.
