FiOS, Please add more news channels like The Blaze, RT, Press TV and some other news channels. Fox News, CNN, and other channels are not always following our point of views. People have rights to watch these alternative media channels. If I had a satellite dish I would be getting these channels already. Also we need another Weather Channel added the Weather Channel is not covering local weather that much like they used to.
You should be able to search for movies with one click, instead of going into each channel and repeating the search over and over. Even better: search for movies on cable channels and premium channels all at the same search!
I have no idea why, despite subscribing to the FXX channel (I've checked, and yes I have it), there is no FXX folder in the On Demand menu. This is very frustrating because I can't stay up late enough to watch the shows on the channel I want to live. I'm paying for the channel, I should be able to watch it On Demand just like everything else I am paying for. If it makes any difference, my FiOS service is in Montgomery County, MD
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.
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
Right now Fox Sports 2 in the NJ region is channel 198 while FXX is next to Fox Sports 1 at channel 84. Please switch them so all of the sports channels can be next to each other. That would also give Fox Sports 2 the HD channel (584) that FXX currently occupies.
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.
It would be very helpful to easily fast-forward within movies that are On-Demand. Simply adding the FiOS chapter approach from DVR recordings would work fine. It is frustrating to start a movie, not finish it (ie., fell asleep, need to watch over the weekend, etc.), and then have to fast-forward, sometimes ah hour plus into the movie at the "2X" pace.
I understand that the traditional-network TV shows don't want to allow this (that's another topic altogether), but fixing the movies would be a step in the right direction for FiOS cusomers. There is no reason why Comcast should have this as an advantage right now. Might as well do it for Pay TV shows too (HBO, Showtime, etc.).
All Dodger games will now be carried on SportsNetLA in the Southern California region. This new sports network launches on February 25 (sportsnetla.com). Please make it available at launch, as the Dodgers will be World Series contenders from day 1. Do not force Dodger fans to be on the outside like your Pac-12 fans in Southern California.
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 live in the Poughkeepsie area and we are unable to get Poughkeepsie weather on the weather channel or local news like YNN. Since many customers come from this area, it would be nice to see the "Local on the 8s" give you Poughkeepsie results and not New York City. It would also be nice to be ablel to tune into YNN for local news and not always watch national news. Since you have many customers in this area, don't you think it would be beneficial to service these customers and use some of empty channels that we have?
