Now that the channel guide has been updated, the bottom frame advertises on-demand movies. We find many of these ads inappropriate - as we don't want to see erotic or demonic movie ads - especially considering the kids. We would like control over what we watch - including what is featured on this channel guide. This should be appropriate for the whole family.
Please add the MHz Worldview channel to my Verizon Local, Select, Preferred, Extreme and Ultimate lineups. Massachusetts (and Boston in particular) has a large multicultural population and this channel provides foreign language programs in a variety of languages from many different countries (including Irish language programs which would be very popular with the Irish diaspora in this area of the US). I suggest you add this to your programming before the competition does so and lures away a chunk of your immigrant demographic !
After doing some research, it has come to my attention that Verizon Fios customers are paying the highest monthly rates for any cable television provider. While both Time Warner and Comcast charge $14.99 for this station, Verizon charges a full 25% more at $19.99. This channel provides a great link to Israel with live television and sporting events. However, to charge such a premium for a non-hd station seems foolish.
My recommendation is to charge the $14.99 a month, allowing for more subscribers to enjoy first run content from israel.
Thunderstorm season is back in Texas, and we don't have a way to track storms real time. The "news" stations sometimes show the weather (when it's severe enough), and the weather stations and app give us a tiny pixelated smudge that's worthless.
We need a station that's just a map. An animated doplar map updated in real time.
I recently got Verizon FIOS, including FX, and was hoping to catch up on the 2nd season of The Americans. I tried watching via Hulu+ but was told that my cable subscription does not allow access to the show. Same thing when I went to the FX website. So unless I want to view an illegal stream, I'll have to purchase the show via Amazon Instant Video or iTunes.
What gives Verizon? I PAY for FX but can't access one of the channel's top shows on line or on demand? I'm giving up my Hulu+ account because after 4+ years of being cable free, I was forced to buy a cable package so I could get faster FIOS internet - it would have cost me MORE to have just internet than getting your triple play package (under a 2 year contract, of course).
This isn't about one TV show, the entire system is ridiculous, and why I dropped cable TV in the first place. Your business model is outdated and only exists because corrupt politicians allow cable companies to write the regulations of this "marketplace."
I still have a couple of weeks left before I can cancel my FIOS and go back to my old provider. I'm starting to regret my deal with the devil.
You should really have more episodes available for the TV shows that are on the free on demand--the selection is really sparse. Cablevision has many more selections of episodes within each selection, not just the most recent couple of episodes.
It would be great if verzion added the ability to start over a program, for example if you turned to something you wanted to watch and it was about to go off or was at the middle of the show or movie you can press a button to start it from the beginning. I really hope you add this feature!!!!!!!!
The recent standard def channel additions like This-TV, Movies!, getTV are great. ANNOUNCE IT WHEN YOU'RE ADDING CHANNELS!!!!!!!!!!! Once a month I have to do a complete channel scan to see what new channels were added and put them in my Favorite channel category. At least print it on the bill.
FIOS 1 NEWS is a cheap, amatuerish attempt at putting together a news channel.
It recycles the same news over and over...AND has some of the worst anchors I have ever seen.
Jennifer X Williams has no business being a sports anchor. She is TERRIBLE. The new, young "school girl" anchors (like Roxanna Hayes and Lorin Richardson) are awful too. Sharon Song (the part-time Weather ancho)r always sounds like she has a bad head cold...
FIOS....spend some money and give us a REAL news channel. Even Cablevision Channel 12 is light years ahead!
