Verizon clearly has the capability and network to stream more data/video to smartphones.  Since I can already log in to my DVR box to control recordings, why not push video that is already recorded back to my phone.  It would be one more way Verizon could stay ahead of the competition.

We do agree that you should be able to enjoy FiOS TV content from your computer or mobile phone... it may not stream from your DVR... it might stream from our network servers instead

Allow FiOS TV boxes to use DLNA to share media

Status: In Progress
by ‎09-28-2010 02:31 PM - edited ‎09-28-2010 03:13 PM

Instead of having us download and install yet another media management application (VZ Media Manager), how about just supporting DLNA, so that existing DLNA servers can work with the FiOS TV box?

 

Windows Media Player on Windows Vista/7 already provides a DLNA server. I see no real reason why VZ Media Manager is necessary.

 

I understand Media Manager is required for us to be able to access YouTube on our boxes, but surely that functionality can be broken out into a smaller application that can run as a service on Windows, instead of this giant, memory-hogging thing that must run in the foreground all the time...

Status: In Progress
You might not remember, but we introduce the capability of sharing content from the computer onto the TV screen in 2006... before DLNA was on the scene. Verizon is committed to employing DLNA to share content between devices in the home. You Tube, iHeart Radio, etc will be able to be directly accessed from the Internet by most set top boxes in the future also removing the need for Media Manager to bridge to the set top box. Stay tuned.

An ideal app for the new tablet devices such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy (and the future Android 3.0 tablets) would be the ability to watch your STB content remotely through the tablet.

 

I currently use a third-party device to do this, and owing to its limited and questionable integration with the Verizon STB (via IR blaster) it is only a partial (and often unreliable) solution.

 

What would be ideal is to be able to stream (at fairly high quality, say DVD+) to the tablet and access DVR and On Demand content as well as regular channels.

 

Integrating the server-side feature of this into the STB would be a strategic move for Verizon, and might help its budding relationship with Apple.

 

This would be far more useful than the current apps (remote control and remote scheduling).

Create an app that allows Fios tv to be watched via Playstation 3.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will pass your request to the FiOS Application Team. Keep the ideas coming.

we know Pandora is not available everywhere. We know what we need to do to finish the deployment. We're in the process of doing it. It has taken a bit longer than we would have liked, but we will be there 'soon'.

Media Access

Status: In Progress
by gfabianp on ‎01-07-2011 02:15 PM

I think Verizon should allow access to other media on one's home network without the needing the Media Manager software installed.

 

I have a NAS on my network and I'm able to stream content to my the via my PS3. It would be nice if I could stream content via my Verizon box without having to stream it through a computer that's running Media Manager software.

Status: In Progress
Yes. The set top boxes need tech called DLNA and the ability to decode some additional content types... both are in progress. Right with you on this one...

Making FIOS available for Xbox by itself.

Status: Maybe Later
by ShazamFTW on ‎03-29-2012 06:29 AM

So, long story short. I don't have a cable service right now. I don't watch enough TV to support it frankly. What I do have is a Hulu Plus account that streams through my XBox, and that does me just fine. But, I would like something better if it became available.

 

So I looked at FIOS, and I liked what I saw, but since I live in West Des Moines, the service as a whole isn't available. I really wouldn't want the whole package, I'd just like what's available through the XBox portion.

 

Have you folks considered putting together a small package that would be available just for XBox customers with no other aspects? (no home box or anything) Because I can't warrant dropping $80 a month for it when I could just go get cable if that's what I really wanted. Something like $20 / month for Xbox access would be perfect, but it doesn't appear that option exists.

 

Just a thought.

Why can't I see my videos, even though they are in iPhoto or iTunes?

Verizon Media Manager cannot share videos with your FiOS TV from your Macintosh computer.



Well why can PC users stream videos and Mac useres cannot? FIX THIS!

Make Media Manager work

Status: Acknowledged
by mbrun on ‎11-12-2010 05:05 PM

It's been said in several ways, but I'll sum up my reaction to Media Manager: it is terrible. I'm on a Mac, so that apparently means I'm a second-class customer. It took a long time for Media Manager to come out on the Mac and when it was finally released I eagerly installed it. Trouble is, it is junk.

1. No video support at all

2. It stutters so badly after a few minutes of music that it is worthless

3. Photos frequently have an unexplainable and unfixable "This file has been moved or deleted..." message even though they are not missing or corrupt.

4. Entire Albums don't even show up in the list

 

I cut the program some slack because it was early in it's release but even after more than a year nothing has changed. It is not useable.

Dear Fios TV development team,

 

I was probably one of the first Customers in the MD area to order the new Fios Quantum tv box, and it is all working great but it has one major drawback that I think should not be too hard to resolve. With my sic tuner now, the whole family can record all their shows and watch wherever they are in the house but what we are finding is after just a few days of recording, the clutter is getting to us. In a house with 4 people and each with different taste of shows you can imagine how it can be hard to pinpoint your particular show from a list of 20 + shows, So, I think it would be a good Ideas if the Fios development team would create s way for us to create our own folders where we keep shows that are of interest to us. for example: we would each have a folder name for each member of the family and when we are setting our recording we get to choose the folder where we want the show saved. What do you think?

Media Manager for MAC's

Status: Acknowledged
by robertf390 on ‎05-27-2011 08:22 AM

Hello:

 

Is it possible for Verizon to make the same functionality availability to us MAC users for the Media Manager program as you do for Windows users. Why are we short changed simply because we use a more technologically advanced platform.

 

Please advise - thanks

What happen to Music Choice? They changed to format and made it much less interesting. I see they set the "MC" for Music Choice in huge font and the information about the music too small to read? It's not about advertising your brand, it's about providing a good product.

Thanks for your suggestion- I'll make sure it get to the proper people within Verizon.

Flex View Packages/Add On

Status: Acknowledged
by sweaverit on ‎02-11-2012 07:04 PM

I think there should be an option where you pay so much a month and can rent so many on-demand movies/shows/etc. for that price!  Taxing for each movie on-demand is ridiculous.  Example: Flex View Package allows you to rent 3 on-demand NEW RELEASE movies + 3 on-demand movies (not new release) + 3 on-demand TV-shows PER MONTH for $19.95 + tax. Flex View NEW RELEASE Package allows you to rent 3 NEW RELEASE Movies PER MONTH for $8.95 + tax.  and onward...

Movie rental duration

Status: Not Likely
by medvo on ‎08-22-2011 05:43 PM

 

It's 8PM. I want to see a movie. I rent a 2.5h HD movie for $6.

 

Now it's 9PM and I'm tired. I hope to finish the movie tomorrow. But ... I can't. The rental is good for 24 hours only. That's ridiculous. Sorry I have to work tomorrow. The earliest I can sit down to finish my movie is 8PM-9PM. By then my rental is gone.

 

Make it at least 2 days!!!

 

Thanks,

M
