Why can't we have more than a weeks worth of guide data? All be it, it might be bad data with FYI behind the scenes, but when you see a commercial that says starting next Tuesday x/x/x, it would be nice to go and schedule the show.
Ok...so Fios1 has been available for Long Island and Northern New Jersey for some time, meanwhile the rest of us have been patiently waiting. I've been told by a few Verizon employees that local news channels are planned for several other areas, but seriously how long does it take to roll them out? Cablevisions prices were ridiculous, the quality of the broadcast was crap, but it was almost worth it to actually get news from my town. I'm sorry to say that I didn't really know how important it was to conveniently find out what's going on around you until I switched to Fios. As good as the service is, its worthless without a local news station. Its time to roll it out in the Hudson Valley.
I have one of the larger HD channel packages to obtain a certain few channels. Unfortunately it includes epix: monthly cost is the unfortunate part.
Epix requires one connect a computer to the TV. While I do have a computer connected to my TV, my media center, it runs ubuntu. I am vehemently disinclinded from purchasing windows to allow epix DRM flash stream in browser to tv over hdmi.
* allow customers to unsubscribe from paying for epix WHILE retaining the other channels
* coerce epix to play well with XBMC [or boxee box]
I am now a subscriber to Fios. I would be very glad to hear you would consider, and add Canada's most hilarious new series. The Drunk And On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour, featuring the three stars of Canada's most popular series, Trailer Park Boys. A lot of U.S. viewers are now well aware of that show, so be the first ones to feature this quirky comedy, and see how large your audience can grow. I am repeating this request to other premium providers too.

I want to see sewing shows on HGTV or one of the channels there are many sewing shows out there, just waiting to be picked up. Wilth todays economy many are returning to sewing to save money. And many young people because of shows like project
runway are taking up sewing to design their own clothing. I theach sewing and I know there is a need for these shows to
be aired. If you want to have a list of the shows available just let me know.
