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?

Rental Movies Aspect Ratio

Status: Acknowledged
by brw16 on ‎05-03-2014 02:52 PM

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!

Please add UV support for Verizon STBs

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎03-27-2014 09:28 PM

I refuse to buy or even try out the first free on-demand video since I hate being restricted to a single service for videos I purchase or rent.  For those who don't know:


UltraViolet
https://www.uvvu.com/‎

 
Works with many major streaming offerings except Verion Redbox Instant and Amazon Instant Video.
 
Supported steaming services:
Flixster
Vudu
MGo
Target Ticket
many more
 
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?

Add Channels to Xbox App

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎01-22-2014 06:28 PM

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.

FiOS Radio

Status: Acknowledged

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.

Wow! Tall order. Looks like you are all about listening to the radio. Your idea will be passed on to the appropriate team. Thanks for visiting the Idea Exchange.

Add the ability to stream Redbox Instant movies from the OnDemand menu.

The team responsible for Redbox Instant has been notified about your request. No current answers, but if there are any changes, this would be the place to find your answers. Thanks so much for sharing your idea.

Unlimited Flex View/On Demand Movie PLAN

Status: Acknowledged
by samo85 on ‎06-23-2013 02:24 PM

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!! 

Status: Acknowledged
Hmm, that is an interesting suggestion. I will pose this to the proper team.

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????

Posting your request in the Idea Exchange is a good start. I do not have the a clear answer for you presently, but I can pass this on to the FiOS programming team. They have a relationship with the content provider. Keep posting your suggestions.

Add Access to Music Choice App

Status: Acknowledged
by casto on ‎04-17-2013 07:28 PM - last edited on ‎04-19-2013 04:43 PM by Moderator

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?

Status: Acknowledged
So much music to listen to. I really can't say if and when this will be available via Verizon, but I will inquire with FiOS TV app team. Thanks for sharing.

Ok,

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.

 

Thanks,

So sorry you weren't able to get you movie downloaded to your preference. I currently don't have an answer for you, but I can reach out to the appropriate team for clarity. Thanks for the suggestion.

Album choice

Status: Acknowledged
by ZDM1197 on ‎03-12-2013 10:10 AM

 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 !

Status: Acknowledged
Thanks for the idea! This sounds like an expansion of Music choice. Consider it passed to the appropriate team.

Spanish Toddler Music Choice Station!!

Status: Acknowledged
by Teishash on ‎02-11-2013 08:30 AM

Hi

 

The Latino Spanish stations are great.  My son and I really like the adult and children selections.  We also really like listening to the Toddler Music Choice station.  I was wondering if there was any way that Verizon could also have a Spanish Toddler Music Choice station.  There is so much traditional Spanish music for children and American/English music translated or reworded into Spanish for children out there that I am sure that it would make a great station for native speakers and for children that want to learn the language.  Music is an important aspect in all of our lives and I believe that the added bilingual and multicultural elements will just make it even more special.

 

Please, please add this station!

Thanks! Great idea. I will share your suggestion with the programming team. Keep the ideas coming.
