The current 1.33 YouTube Widget is slow, laggy, and outdated. It does not stream video content in HD. Please update this feature. Thank you Verizon!

Search VOD while watching live tv

Status: Already Exists
by bstmstrxellos on ‎06-04-2011 01:58 PM

I would like to be able to browse the Video on Demand content while the widow is showing live tv (similar to how the full screen guide works) instead of the VOD advertisments.

You can use Search instead of On Demand from main menu... not exactly what is being requested... but pretty close.

In the 'FiOS Mobile Remote' app for Android devices (on the Google Nexus 7 tablet), the login credentials are not being recognized, and the pairing of the remote on the app with the set top box (in conjunction with the 'FiOS Mobile Remote' TV widget) is not working.

The 'FiOS Mobile Remote' app is also a component of the 'My FiOS' app for Android devices.

The rest of the components of the 'My FiOS' app for Android seem to be working fine.


Please see this forum thread for details:



Thank you!

Share a Show

Status: Acknowledged
by PhyllisP on ‎10-12-2010 01:56 PM

I was on the phone with a friend talking about a TV show that I recorded and she had not.  The idea of emailing her the show to her play list came to mind.      If we are both FIOS Internet and FIOS TV customers, then using an email widget from the TV screen or an option on my playlist, I would like to send the show to a friends play list to watch.   List of contacts from selected email account will need to be available to select sender.  Now on Receivers end, she would have to accept the show option with sender name, name of show and description  for it to download to her list.   This accept option is not for Pay Per View shows or content on channels not available to the receiving system, without a fee.  If the customer has the channel then the cost is free.   Example, we both have HBO, we can send movies to each other but if only the sender has HBO, the person accepting does not have the channel then she pays a one-time fee, if legal otherwise  the send is denied with channel not available to sender message.   If the person accepting the show, does not have space on there play list, then the systems prompts giving deleting options that will allow enough space or an option to accept later so the person can watch some of those options prior to deleting.  If you accept later, then when ready just click on the accept option, anytime.  I think this would be really cool feature requiring FIOS.  An ideas to make it better?

Definitely dig it. Share with friend. This could also be cool proactively. Something like sharing the shows you have scheduled to record?

What People are Watching widget helped me never miss what was on. My whole family loved it and had fun to see if what we were watching matched what everyone else in our area was watching! Also a great marketing tool for you when you see everyone is watching say Game of Thrones on HBO, people might request getting Premium channels more.Thanks.

Good call. Let me pass this on to the team responsible for these types of request.

Fix the NYC 311 widget, please

During the recent upgrade, maybe, the NYC 311 widget stopped working. It lets you select cameras, but they can't be opened up. Is there a way to do it? Pressing the OK button doesn't work. Please fix it.

Notify customers what is new

I only accidentally found the FIOS remote control widget for my ipod touch yesterday, it could have been available for months or more. How about a What's New in the monthly billing email /paperless statement?

Status: Already Exists
We use, Spotlight magazine, notifications on the TV itself, TV ads and many... many other avenues to communicate new features and capabilities.. we'll continue to add new ones and try better ways so you don't miss a piece of the value... I would suggest you visit to see what's new as probably a nice centralized source of what's going on

Internet video streams

Status: Maybe Later
by xalex25 on ‎11-12-2010 06:33 PM

Are there are plans to allow internet video streams to be viewed through the VZ media manager in the same way we have internet radio streams now?  I want to be able to put in the stream address myself and not be locked in to youtube and others. Is this capability coming?

Status: Maybe Later
We have been trying, but definitely more difficult compared to audio streams. Video streams vary quite widely in their specific implementation... But I agree that's it's a good feature to have on the roadmap.

New TV widget that would let you get lottery results for your state

Status: Accepted
I always liked this one... wake up in the morning - check the lottery... if you win then who cares about news, traffic and weather... no matching numbers and then see if you have to wear a jacket to sit in a traffic jam caused by chickens that escaped and are running all over the highway.

I notice you have the I Heart Radio App in the widget section. How about adding the TuneIn Radio App to receive the rest of the radio stations out there? I Heart Radio is only clear channel radio stations but TuneIn Radio gets the rest. I use it on my Andriod phone and I think it would only compliment the I Heart Radio App. Thanks. James from Westerly, RI.

Status: Maybe Later
We have one more radio app in the hopper, but it's not TuneIn Radio... once that one is launched... we'll see if it makes sense to add even more...

I need college football scores.  My buddies would like updates to their favorite blogs.  You guys are taking forever to make more than the 12-15 options you have.

Status: In Progress
We currently have over 100 developers working with us to polish the ecosystem to support a much larger number of parties innovating on the platform. As the SDK and the supporting infrastructure matures we will absolutely invite more participants to the fun. We don't want any mis-starts like have occurred in other tech sectors for app developers.

Verizon Community access widget.

I know there have been people that have suggested wireless keyboards and mice. It would be nice to have the optional slide out type remote keyboard that the other DVR supplier has. Gyro type positioning pointer for the mouse. Then access to the community.


Or a nice App that would work well with the Iphone and provide complete web access to the Community. I believe it would be cool to have a widget and STB access. But without a keyboard it would be rough.

During the college basketball season,  (not ESPN network) air many games that are only viewable on the internet via  In order for me to get the best viewing experience, I connected my laptop to my TV and was able to watch the games via that hookup.  However, connecting the two was quite a pain, especially with wires sticking out.


Given that FIOS now has some internet access widgets, how about adding a widget that allows customers to watch the games that are only available via on TV?  This could work in the extact same manner as Youtube whereby the customer would need to install and have running the Verizon Media Manager.

We continue to work to bring as much content as possible to the TV screen.

DVR to Run Concurrently with Widgets

Status: New Idea
by jbwilcoxson on ‎10-15-2011 01:56 PM

I am recording a college football game on the DVR for my fiance while he is at work, which I would rather not watch. I attempted to turn on Pandora using the widgets on Verizon Fios while I do my house cleaning. It showed a prompt that said I would have to stop my DVR recording in order to use the widgets. Needless to say, I am unable to listen to Pandora.


Perhaps you guys can fix this. Us women would greatly appreciate it.    =)
