I rented a soccer movie! The only "adult" content was a four letter word here and there spoken by the coach in the movie; otherwise this could be considered a totally "clean" family movie. Why, then, did Verizon email me "Thank you for renting an Adult Title?" This is embarrassing as my email account is not password protected as this is my home computer and I see no need to hide anything - but I do not want my kids or anyone else to see an email like this! Can't you think of another way to describe a movie such as this? Thanks!
Last year 802.11 ac came out and Verizon FiOS is still using Wireless N technology and new devices have the 802.11 ac modems inside. 802.11 ac would do a great deal for HD and UHD video playback more than Wireless N would. This would take care of the HD video streaming problems with Netflix. I would recommend that you come out with Wireless ac
routers for new devices that are coming out this year and next year. Why do we have to still deal with 5 year old technology? The new routers can be backwards compatible, but will be future ready for Wireless ac USB sticks, cards, and other things that are wireless ac compatible such as new HD and UHD television sets. This wireless ac technology would help Quantum internet users experience better speeds and less drop outs. Wireless N is getting out of date and how long are we going to keep on our Wireless WiFi N routers? There are Wireless ac routers being sold online and in stores, and they are expensive, but we need to come out with wireless ac routers to meet todays and tommorrow technology requirements. We should not have to fall behind on wireless connectivity. Wireless N is not good enough for services like Netflix, You Tube, and other video streaming services, Wireless ac is the way to go in the future.
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?
I'm a serious film buff and hate the way Verizon does not provide the rental films using the original film's aspect ratio. Instead they try to fill out the screen which is not the way the director intended. Note that they do not do this with non-rental broadcast films. Amazon and Netflix honor the correct aspect ratios and until Verizon does the same I will not rent from them!
Works with many major streaming offerings except Verion Redbox Instant and Amazon Instant Video.
Supported steaming services:
Players exist for about any device: Windows PC, Macs, Roku, Apple TV, ipads, iPhones, Android, Windows phones, PS4, Xbox, various Blue Ray/ DVD players.. except of course Verion STBs.
I just bought a DVD/Blue ray DVD and it came with a UV code so now I can stream that movie on any platorm or service that supports UV. Why can't this customer friendly service be available from Verizon STBs?
I have the FIOS App for Xbox One but a lot of channels (most notably network channels which were just added to the mobile app) are missing. It would be great if Verizon could add the channels to the Xbox app, especially those already on the FIOS mobile app.
I think it would be best that we make set top boxes for the new TV obsolete and replace it with Google TV boxes with a
special app that tunes TV and radio stations. Set top boxes are the technology of the 80's and 90's and they look old school. With these new technologies that you can simply access the web securely and plug the little Android PC into
the side of the new flat screen televisions that can already access the web, watch TV, and watch online movies. This can also relieve some of the bandwidth that can help speed up the internet. But if a set up box is required, it should be for older televisions. So what I am saying is that make a Android PC with the latest operating system, preinstall Google Play, etc, and Verizon FiOS TV channel app that is for subscribers, also include Google Chrome, Google Music,
Google TV, Netflix and also have another app for a DVR that will go onto a large memory card that has 1 TB of Space.
It would be nice to have a setting to mark ondemand programs that have been viewed. This would be nice when watching a series and being able to see what has been watched (similar to Netflix). Of course have an option to turn this off and clear history.
Come out with FiOS Radio and add it to the bundle pack. I would subscribe., I would love to hear Music Choice, XM/Sirius satellite Radio, I Heart Radio, Tune In Radio just like internet radio, but through the FiOS fiber optic network and also include short wave, AM, LW, and FM stations and weather radio. Something to think about adding to the bundle. I like to watch TV, but I listen to the radio in the background. Another set top box for the radio listener. If we had this, then I would not have to miss my music while the TV is on. Some people like to listen to back ground music. And also add a FM transmitter to the set top box without having to always connect to the AUX connector and set any FM transmitter frequency and also add a bluetooth feature and media player from the computer and hard drive and flash drive. Something like a media center box. Just a cool idea since I have been a subscriber and most would like to not always watch TV all of the time. Also add satellite FTA radio stations and public access radio.
I think Verizon should come up with a plan where you pay a set amount every month so that you could watch unlimited On Demand/Flex view movies. The kids love watching movies on the weekends and so do the adults but at the end of the month when the bill is, all those rentals add up. A set amount (ie $20) extra every month added to your bill and you get to watch as many movies you want!!
I was an avid 1825 music choice, stage and screen listener.. As of late, the format regarding how the songs are aired have changed. The first song will be from a broadway musical. (That's great) The next song will be from the category of a movie soundtrack, which is some abscur music like "the soundtrack from, the Little Rascals Movie" The third song will be from a t.v. theme song such as Batman or another movie soundtrack such as John William's, "Saving Private Ryan"..Before, there were specific times for the 3 different categories. I was able to DVR broadway musicals when aired during those specific times. I now have to listen to, two other songs before I can listen to one that I enjoy.and I also can not DVR.. Please, I'm pleading with you, to bring back the old format. So people, who like to listen to Broadway can and tape it for future listening. Just like those interested in listening fo the movie sound tracks can without interruption, listen and tape those songs when aired. This new format does not make any sense!!!!!!
How can I get my message read by someone????? Or, to whom do I write to with my suggestion????

Music Choice has an ipad app and I downloaded it, assuming that Verizon Fios allowed access to it. NO?!?!?! How is that possible?!?! We have access to all of the premium channels "GO" apps, why not Music Choice? Even no-name cable companies I've never heard of before like Hargray and TCT West, and your major competition of Cox, Comcast, and Time Warner have access!! Any chance we can get Verizon Fios access to this app?
Is there a way to download the flexview movies to my sd card verses my phone. It would help a great deal if the movies I bought from verizon could be saved there and not to the main storage on my smartphone. I have a 64gb sd card that I purchased just for this but the movies if I download them go direcly to my phone.
Please help or give the option to select the sd card.
I know we have Music Choice, but you have to listen to what "they" want tp play. I propose an Album Choice....where let's say you want to hear The Eagles Greatest Hits.......or whatever album, I mean CD you would like to hear. You simply go to an alphabetical drop down menu and select, super easy. Start out with greatest hits CDs and move on from there, see if it catches.....NO Charge of course or a very nominal acces charge per month.....I mean minimum amount of money. Should be free. If you could throw in a MTV video of the band playing that song that would be cool, logistically impossible. But the album art would suffice nicely.
What do you think Verizon. Listening to a great music album makes you feel better... beats TV any day !
