You all are planning on dropping Funimation?  This is a very dumb move imo.  You have a ton of people that are Verizon Fios customers solely for this channel.  This is the only channel you are able to watch "real" anime and I along with alot of people from what I see just googleing "Fios to drop funumation"  came here mainly for that channel.  There are NO real anime channels beside this, how could the ratings possibly be that low.  This channel is no lie on at my house at least 8 hours a day.  This is the channel that runs even while I am on my pc not watching TV.  Go find another "actual" crappy channel to cut.  I can't imagine many people watch cartoon network anymore now that Adult Swim is filled with stupid shows a 4 year old could do a better job on and comedies that are the dumbest thing I have ever seen.  If you cut this channel Verizon I asure you, that you will lose ALOT of customers.

Unfortunately Funimation will not be coming back as part of the TV lineup. You can view some of the content in On Demand.

Enable PIP Picture in Picture Functionality

Status: Accepted
by Ktrain on ‎04-23-2011 05:47 AM

How long will we have to wait for Verizon FIOS to upgrade their existing clunky oversize "set top" boxes to allow Picture in PIcture (PIP)?  Since we are told the existing set top boxes cannot provide PIP, why not just offer us PIP hungry customers a different box, like the Scientific American's. 


Its high time for Verizon to not drop the ball on this one. If the existing boxes cannot handle such a simple function that Comcast customers in my area have had for years, I will be forced to switch to Comcast to resolve this. I bought a TV with PIP functionality deliberately, like so many others have. If the digital age involves rolling back technologies, why did we switch again?


I am forced  to presume Verizon FIOS wants me to rent yet another box and split the signal before it enters my set top box,, and live with SD and a limited channel lineup and no guide. Nope. Its like we are still in the stone age. Why is there a PIP button on my remote, anyways? 


Its also high time to abandon the name set top box.  If a single customer can get the set top box on top of the existing flat panel high definition TV, please post a picture so we can all get a good laugh. 



Status: Accepted
But not the 1990's definition of PIP... something more sophisticated... 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.... video windows on a screens... you pick which ones... just went to a design meeting today :smileyhappy: Please jack up the vote volume.... will help me in the cause.

We can see many of your are interested in adding Blaze TV to the channel lineup. Please know that your request will be forwarded to the FiOS TV team. If they decide to consider it, I will post an update here on the thread. Thanks everyone!

New TV Guide is a bust

Status: Acknowledged

Sirs,  I came home from work and had to wait to find out you upgraded the TV Guide (if you want to call it an upgrade).  I personally think it is two step backward and closely resembles the Comcast TV Guide of a few years ago.   Not only is the TV Guide poor programming choice but it also does not hold to the "Favorites" when the box is turned off.  In these days of resources conservation, I think that leaving the box turned on is a waste of resources and not very green thinking.  I wonder who the "airhead" was that OK'ed this (so called) upgrade.  I feel with this new TV Guide you've really screwed up.

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.

Currenly there's no way AFAIK to hide unsubscribed channels in the guide and when hitting channel up/down - this is ridiculous.  Clearly Verizon removed this feature in order to advertise these additional channels in hopes of getting people to subscribe to them and spend more money.  Well all it does is **bleep** people off (see the forums), so please add this option. 


Yes, I know I can use Favorites to do something similar, but it's a pain to setup, and Favorites should be for my Favorites, not for "all the channels that I pay for".  There should be a single option, "Hide unsubscribed channels", and it should be selected by default.

Status: Launched

There is a way to set the guide to only show subscribed channels.


Use this link for details:


Using your remote use the following steps:

Menu -- Settings -- Television -- Last Viewed Guide State -- Enable (as checked)

then go to Guide -- Options -- Subscribed Channels

From this point when you click on the guide you should only see subscribed channels on the guide listing.


Please note, if STB is reset, you will need to follow steps again.

Hi All- Yesterday Verizon and AMC Networks reached a deal! That means there will be no disruption in your service and you'll be able to keep watching all your favorite shows! Thanks for sticking with us! -Heather

I just exchanged my old DVR (6216) to the new one (7232), and the new model is a sharp black case that fits right in with my flat-screen tv. I was told that I could swap out my old HD Boxes as well, but was told that the new (i.e. black case) boxes do not display the time on the front as the old ones did (from what I was told, this is an energy-saving feature). My family is big on having a box with the time on the front (especially at night) and while I appreciate the effort to help save energy, I think the box is best with both the time and the channel on the front.

Perhaps there could be an option (front display when powered off......clock/no clock)  in the new firmware for those who don't want the clock or are concerned about the power usage.


Thanks for listening.

Status: Not Likely
There is no way to "bring back" the clock without building a new set top box... but I have to agree... so let's see how many votes we get here... so I can push the set top team to bring it back in the next version (so existing box aint getting change - maybe the next one)

Free multiroom DVR for life?

Status: Acknowledged
by Kt4ever on ‎12-29-2011 07:41 AM
I recently saw an add on TV for FIOS . It offered free multiroom DVRs for LIFE! Why am I paying $19.99 a month for mine? How about rewarding your longtime subscribers with a free DVR for life! My bill is over 200 a month! How about rewarding me!
Status: Acknowledged
Thank you for your suggestion- I'll make sure it gets to the proper team within Verizon.

I was amazed to find out that now that the new DVRs are available and I have been a loyal customer for over 3 years, patiently waiting and signing up for the official lists to get the new DVR hardware, I win the right to pay VZ $39.99 just to use the new hardware!!! Hardware that I pay monthly for anyways!!! Why is there an upgrade fee for something that I lease? This is unbelievable that we get charged monthly (and I am sure when I upgrade, my grandfathered 12.99 will go up too) and we still have to pay for the actual upgrade? Especially those of us using 6416s which cannot take advantage of new features of the new IMG1.9 (ESata and other features).


VZ, can you explain this? I bet if I was a new customer, I would get the new DVR without a $39.99 fee.

Status: Acknowledged

If you have had your DVR for 3-4+ years.... then I have already acknowledged we need to see if there are other options...


But to many of the comments below... when you lease a car and next year or the year after they come out with a better one do you expect to get the new model for free?  And they are the same... your content purchases are separate from equipment charges by federal regulation (buying HBO doesn't subsidize your equipment).  In this comparison gas = content and the car = DVR.... 


So "under review" for customers that have had a box for 3-4+ years, but if you have had your DVR for less than 3 years, then "maybe later"... and I think the fee is fair (just like upgrading your leased car early).


New customers could get any one of the 3 available models just like an existing customers ordering a new DVR for their existing account. We have made this as fair as possible for new and existing customers. 

I would like to see FiOS TV drop the SD version of any stations that are available in HD. It is a waste of coax bandwidth to have both SD and HD versions of the same station. As for customers that still have SD displays, in my experience I have not had issues viewing the HD channels on an SD display.

The highest volume boxes out there are 2500's... so while I concur.... there are a couple million viewers that wouldn't at this point

Watch TV on an Ipad

Status: In Progress
by howarddnyc on ‎06-18-2011 09:10 PM

Time Warner and Comcast now have an Ipad app that allows their customers to watch any television program in real time on their Ipad.  Verizon Fios which is far superior to both of these cable subscribers should add this service to Verizon Fios ASAP.

New DVR with more than two tuners.

Status: Maybe Later
by ‎08-01-2010 08:13 AM - edited ‎08-30-2010 02:29 PM

Having more storage would be great, but conflicting record times and recording two while watching a third would be good. Provide a good DVR with more than two tuners, and an option for existing customers to upgrade to this DVR. I would pay $20 a moth for this but not the existing HM-DVR.

Status: Maybe Later
With the start of the roll out of our next round of set top boxes and DVR's... we are beginning the process of defining the future versions
