Watching DVR or TV channels on a PC

Status: Under Review
by wdp on ‎01-13-2013 07:09 AM

I would love to have the ability to watch my DVR shows on my PC like I could with Direct TV.  Making it easier to see live TV on a PC would be nice also. Thats something Verizon should be trying to do.

Windows 8 / Windows Phone 8 support

Status: Acknowledged

Now that Verizon Wireless is all on Windows Phone 8, will Verizon reconsider doing Windows Phone apps.  With a shared kernel, you could do Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps for FiOS with some shared code.


Or you could open up the API and let us write our own apps.  Twitter got alot of early adoption by having an open API.

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.

Makes no sense to me since the cable channels it streams are so limited, then why can't we have local channels? FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS. Seema like a big miss here.

Status: In Progress
Today's FIOS Mobile for iPad app, indeed delivers 75 national channels. Good news is that we've got plans in motion to enhance with Locals, so stay tuned...

Make the Wifi remote work without needing to go out on the Verizon network and back.

We need this just to work locally.


The app seems like the remote DVR, where it goes out to Verizon servers and then back you your STB. Why not IP to the router Wifi and then directly to the box. Not to Verizon and back to a gateway not found error. Or STB/DVR not communicating.


Just like the PC remote program that I asked for that could be loaded on your work station or laptop that uses Wifi or hardwired ethernet and would be direct from your computer to the STB or DVR. A user could sit at the couch and do searches with a full size PC, or laptop size keyboard. This would even take load off of the Verizon servers.


Why should Wifi not have a local connect feature where it does not require to be routed through Verizon's servers?


If WiFi is the standard for you, make it work without going out to the Verizon network and back. I tried my iPhone and it did not work without connecting to the verizon network, even though I entered the correct number provided on the screen.


All the apps or programs act like your are tring to do everything from outside your house from another State. NO it should be a simple thing for it to go IP through the router straight to the box. All you would need for the local option is to add the STB ID number and code to scan the local network for the ID. Bing you have it and everyone that wants a local RF remote would have it with just a tweek of your code.


Not part of your media software, but the remote software offered for the phones that could be used via wifi. And if possible the same program compiled for a PC..


This would also allow you to have two boxes sitting side by side and controlled seperately. Where the IR remote does not.

Hey Prisaz- I'll make sure the proper team within Verizon sees this. Thanks!

I've been using FIOS servicves for well over a decade, and up until recently have been really happy with you..  But the fact is that it is insanely idiotic, stupid, ironic and perhaps ludicrous that you have a "Mobile App" actually called the FiOS Mobile app, which ONLY WORKS when connected to the FiOS Router!! The one place you don't need a mobile app is the ONLY place you can use it.. 


I mean if that's your logic, I may as well call XFINITY or DISH.. Much as I truly hate to say it, their DVR service and Mobile apps excel where you guys #FAIL Record more than 2 shows, watch shows or DVR anywhere etc..  


Further, I think the My FiOS app used to have the TV Listings and DVR Control but now it doesn't (hmm the app that lets you pay Verizon works anywhere.. the app that makes Verizon no money? only usable on a FiOS WiFi network.. 


Shame on you Verizon!!! 


When you introduced FTTP you promised us the future.. Yet it's the traditional Cable or Satellite companies who are excelling and giving customers what FiOS should already have!! I pay a fortune (just for Data & TV service) yet really not seeing where all my $$ is going..

It's wonderful to be able to record shows using the Verizon My FIOS mobile app on my iPhone. Since I enjoy recording sports, it is very frustrating to not be able to use the "extend time" feature which is available when recording at home.  Please add this feature to the mobile app! Thank you.

Currently you cannot stream fios mobile from your ipad to the TV using Airplay or a VGA output cable. I get the error &quot;We're Sorry, but Fios Mobile does not currently support video out from this device.&quot;<br><br>Since you cannot stream Fios from your computer this is the only option if you want to watch Fios and you dont have a second TV. Can you please get this fixed, its a huge let down and if Fios is not mobile then there is really no reason to keep subscribing. I rather just use Hulu or Netflix which I can stream or watch from any device.<br><br>Thanks,

Thanks for your input, I have sent this suggestion to our team!

Can you PLEASE give us the ability to modify scheduled recordings through the Internet site & the Fios Remote app?


It appears that the only way you can modify a recording (ie - set it to stop recording 5 minutes later, or record ONLY the first run episodes) is at the DVR. This does not help someone who is on the go and wants to set up a modified recording from their office on the computer, or on their mobile device.

Watch ABC App

Status: Under Review
by chips99 on ‎05-20-2013 09:55 PM - last edited on ‎05-24-2013 04:03 PM by Moderator

ABC has launched the Watch ABC app for iOS devices and is offering a free preview for Philadelphia and NY area customers until June 30th.  After that time customers will be required to authenticate with a participating television provider to continue to watch live streams of the local news and live ABC programming.


Currently WPVI in Philadelphia is not listing FiOS TV as a partcipating provider that will provide authentication services after the free preview.  I find this odd since Verizon HD sponsors the local sports programming each night on WPVI.


Can someone please negotiate with ABC/WPVI to enable this so we can continue to stream the local programming in the Watch ABC app after the free preview?


ABC/Disney also offer Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior Apps that also offer live streaming capability but Verizon is not participating with those either.

I would like to all OSes on your platform to get equal treatment.   All OSes should have access to in house app directed toward services you provide (dvr app).  You service a Variety of customer that have different taste.  Why should one customers get privileges over another that has mirroring services based on the OS they choose? I would also like to see your sale reps use the same energy to sale every OS, and Verizon give every OS a fair start out the gate.   There have been countless time when I went to a  Verizon store to check out a phone other than Android, and phone had either no internet service, was not charged, or was not on display.  That makes it hard for a customer to make informed decision.


Local channels

Status: Clarification Needed
by Fudge on ‎07-12-2013 09:37 AM
When all other cable companies are offering some type mobile viewing servings for local channels, why doesn't fios offer such type of service? We are very happy with all other fios service yet the demand from my family for mobile access has me considering my options. Is there a estimated time when this service will be available?

Could you elaborate further?

Fios Apps for Adroid Tablets

Status: Launched
by DonM on ‎04-09-2012 07:38 PM

Currently most of your apps only work for android mobile devices.  Is their a reason these apps are not available on adroid tablets as well?

Status: Launched
Great News! FiOS App for Android tablet is now available. Available nationwide be end of day. Additional details can be found here:

The FIOS Mobile App should either only show subscribed channels on it's Watch Now screen or include "Subscribed" in its Category selections.


It's annoying enough having a lot of non-working choices on a large screen tv. On a mobile device with limited screen space it's downright annoying.
