Drop Current TV/Al Jazeera

Now that Al Gore has sold Current TV to the Al Jazeera network, I would humbly ask that Verizon seriously consider dropping this channel from all services, as Time Warner Cable has done.


Thank you.

Thank you for your suggestion. We will make sure the proper teams within Verizon are made aware of your idea.

Please add these extra channels so that Florida FiOS customers can get all our Rays, Lightning, Marlins, and Magic games. HD versions would be awesome...just saying.

Make ESPN a premium channel like HBO.

The cost of ESPN keeps rising, which means fee increases for consumers - even if you don't watch ESPN. I believe that the group of channels should be an additional add-on, like HBO and Showtime, rather then come bundled with the rest of the channels even if we don't want it. 


If you can do this, it will force ESPN to take a hard look at how they need to stop raising fees without regard for the consumer.


Thank you!

Interesting concept. Your post will be shared with the appropriate team.

I'm sure this is on the way, but I just wanted to add my vote hoping that Verizon FiOS TV subscribers will soon have access to the new "Fox Sports Go" app.

Thanks so much for your interest in the FOX Sports Go App. This has been mentioned to the team responsible for App deployment.

5 Borough Community Access TV Option

Status: Acknowledged
by WilmaF on ‎02-10-2014 02:14 PM

If it isn't too inconvenient or expensive, we would love to see the option to have a channel package or FiOS TV personalization option of Community Access TV from all 5 of New York City's boroughs. We happen to live in Brooklyn, but sometimes people have connections, be they personal or business, with other borroughs as well; so why should our community access TV be limited to just one borough? It would also be more representative of New York City as a whole. Channel offerings would be to include CUNY TV from all 5 boroughs as well as the local Community Access channels.

When I had Direct TV, their "premier" package included all movie channels and all channels except for specialty channels, such as Spanish and 3D channels. So I find it weird that Verizon has chosen to omit channels from their high end packages (Extreme and Ultimate HD) that I would think would be included in their basic package. I initially purchased the Prime HD package, then I had to upgrade after realizing that it did not have some of the espn channels that I watch and for some reason it did not include Bio HD. So then I thought about moving to the Extreme package since it looked like it included most channels I wanted to see, then I realize that it did not include any movie channels. So that bought me to the Ultimate HD package, but once again I was disappointed that it did not include ALL movie stations. It seemed weird that I would have to still purchase HBO, Encore and Starz and purchasing your high end movie package. :smileymad:

I noticed in another post with the same request that it was answered incorrectly.  My wife cannot believe that Verizon FIOS does not have the Hallmark Channel (240)  in high def.  I am now under pressure to switch back to Brighthouse.  There are now a number of great Hallmark Christmas movies on this channel but HiDef.  This needs to be changed as soon as possible.

We are new FIOS subscribers and tonight sat down to watch Downton Abbey, On Demand. After struggling through their frustrating interface and found nothing, we called Customer Service and were told "not all programs are offered in On Demand". Can't say if they still do, but Comcast offered Downton Abbey On Demand last season. And Comcast's On Demand interface is a breeze compared to Verizon's. Hopefully things will improve at Verizon in the next 2 years, if not...

I think you should add the HBO series true blood to on demand the final season is coming up in a few months and I missed the entire last season being away for 11 months I live in Maryland and it would greatly be appreciated by me and many others as well. Thank you very much

HD Channels and improved features?

Status: Acknowledged
by adkrasinski2 on ‎04-28-2011 10:41 AM - last edited on ‎06-09-2011 11:40 AM by Admin Emeritus

Right now, FiOS shows actors names that are in the movies, however I think they should add the commentators names that are broadcasting the sports event. Also include the sideline reports names.


Another thing is adding more HD channels:


  • FiOS1 HD
  • Bloomberg Television HD
  • CBS Sports Network HD
  • CNN Headline News HD
  • CNN International News HD
  • E! HD
  • ESPN CLS HD (ESPN Classic HD)
  • FearNet HD
  • Fuel HD
  • HLN HD (Headlines HD)
  • G4 HD
  • MTV 2 HD
  • MTV Hits HD
  • NESN Plus HD
  • Nickelodeon 2 HD
  • Nick Jr. HD
  • SNY HD
  • Style HD
  • TV One HD

Why doesn't FIOS offer Fox Soccer Channel and Fox SoccerChannel Plus in HD??


Status: Launched
Fox Soccer Channel launches this week for most of our customers. GOL TV is the next HD channel for soccer, but there will be other channels turned on before GOL TV is available.

SEC Network launches in August 2014

Status: Acknowledged
by MABama on ‎05-15-2013 02:30 PM

The SEC athletic conference and ESPN announced a 20-year agreement to carry a new television network and digital platform called the “SEC Network.”  The formal name is the “SEC ESPN Network.”  The Network will offer SEC sports and sports-related studio programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  More than 1,000 live events will be available in the first full year across the television Network and its digital extensions.  This will include approximately 45 football games, more than 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games and events from across all 21 SEC-sponsored sports.

I would like to see Verizon FIOS carry the SEC Network in all markets.

Wow! That is a lot of Sports. I was not aware of this one, but I am sure the team over at FiOS Programming will have the latest info. I will pass this on to them. Way to get your request in before 2014. Thanks for using Idea Exchange.

how about a "Movies Essentials" package?

by kman on ‎11-26-2013 06:54 AM

In other words, how about a simple premier movie package for $12-$15 a month  that has the main HD channels of:





The Movie Channel

Here is an idea that is in use in other parts of the world that if Verizon introduced it could be a major reason to use Verizon over other content distributors.  Offer accurate time recording on Verizon DVR's!


It is technologically possible to make DVR's record exactly when a given program begins and ends.  See the article:


This is available in other parts of the world.  Yes, I understand that the networks would need to provide the signal for this to work.  But just think if Verizon offered this.  One more reason to rent a Verizon DVR!

Definitely know what you mean. Your idea along with similar ones will be passed to the STB team.

Please keep Current TV/Al Jazeera

I thought I'd start this thread so that people have some place to vote in support of Verizon's decision to carry the new Al Jazeera station.
