When will Verizon be offering a smaller Digital adapter? The current model Motorola DCT-700 Digital Adapter is very large and slow. When I had Comcast I had a smaller digital adapter that was quick that also had a extra IR sensor so you could mount the adapter in back. It was sooo nice. All Verizon has is this big thing. Come on Verizon MAN UP!!!!!!
There are too many channels that are listed on the guide that makes no sense for them to be where they are at so my suggestion is that you realign them so that people can find those channels a lot easier. For example fx1 and fx2 should not be in two completely different areas where they should be right next to each other back to back. The same would also apply to the new fxx channel that is on the way which will be taking the place of fox soccer so that means that it will be located where the sports channels are. H2 should also not be before the history channel. Other channels that make no sense where they are at are the live well network in hd at channel 467 when the next channel is the live well network in sd at channel 468. Hd channels are supposed to be in the 500s or higher remember? There is also the matter of two boomerang networks that appear at channels 1724 and 1725 where they are the same definition and the same feed. Also if you are going to pursue this then how about removing gol tv english channel 313 from the guide since the feed was discontinued back in may? It is very misleading to continue to have it listed there because it makes new customers think all they have to do is press ok twice and they will have the channel available to them when it no longer exists on fios.
Currently you cannot stream fios mobile from your ipad to the TV using Airplay or a VGA output cable. I get the error "We're Sorry, but Fios Mobile does not currently support video out from this device."<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,
The cost of ESPN keeps rising, which means fee increases for consumers - even if you don't watch ESPN. I believe that the group of channels should be an additional add-on, like HBO and Showtime, rather then come bundled with the rest of the channels even if we don't want it.
If you can do this, it will force ESPN to take a hard look at how they need to stop raising fees without regard for the consumer.
According to the article below in addition to many other articles out there, Fox is rebranding their Fox Soccer Channel as the FXX channel this fall. They're also going to move some existing shows such as "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" to that channel as well.

Not only does Verizon now charge doublethe amount its competitors like Comcast charge for CableCARD usage ($5 vs $2.50 per card), but Verizon also penalizes TiVo customers for using cablecards by double dipping on charges.
FiOS subscribers who have the Series3 Tivo, the very first HD Tivo model, require two cablecards to operate the unit. This model was made before the advent of multistream cards which deliver more than one channel simultaneously to the cable tuners. Thus, while people who have Series 4 (Premiere collection) and later (Series 5, Roamio collection) Tivos only require a single card to operate their DVR device, Series3 users need two cards because of the older technology.
I love my Series3 unit because it is the only TiVo model with an OLED display with a clock and front pannel display which indicates which programs are currently recording. Moreover, I purchased a lifetime Tivo subscription for $500 on the unit which means I don't have to pay any monthly service fees.
Verizon should be able to support this device and provide me the 2 cable cards I need to operate it at the cost of only a single device like Comcast does. Instead, I am now being charged $10 per month to operate this device, QUADRUPLE what a Comcast customer would pay. Comcat provides the first card free of charge, and only charges a nominal fee for the second card if it is used in the same device.
I was previously a Cablevision customer where the cost of each CableCARD was merely $2 per month. See here: Cablevision CableCARD fees. When I switched to FiOS, my cable card fees QUADRUPLED because Optimum was kind enough to give me second CableCARD needed to operate my Series3 at no extra cost.
Not only has Verizon raised the price of each cablecard from $4 to $5 but they do not offer any concession for TiVo Series3 users. This is just really bad business practice. I can understand charging for additional cards if they are inserted and used to operate additional DVRs, but not $10 to operate a single machine. That is more expensive than the cost required for a single HD setup box from Verizon and violates the FCC mandate on CableCARDS. If Verizon does not resolve this issue I will be filing a complaint with the FCC and suggest others do so as well as FiOS customers are being taken advantage of, since FiOS is essentially penalizing customers who choose to use third party hardware.
I would like to contact your corporate headquarters regarding this policy issue, but there is no link or e-mail address provided for such queries. The only contacts I can find is for customer support (residential) and investor relations.
It would be much more helpful if there was a simple key punch someone could use to automatically block the number of the last phone call. Much like the keys used for identiy blocking, call back. Then I would have to reenter the last phone number and write it down. Then if necessary let us edit it on line should we accidently block the wrong number.
I keep seeing reports where verizon's executives continue to say that if verizon customers wanted 1gbps internet speed made available to them they would have no problem making that happen if someone were to request it so here is that request. According to verizon's cpo and vp verizon is capable of offering 10gbps and while that may be too much for some there may be interest in that too. If google fiber can offer a internet package that is $70 for 1gbps and also offer another package where they have 1gbps internet speed plus cable tv for $120 then surely verizon can offer a similar type deal. They may not be a competitor right now but with their plan to expand to the east coast they are very likely to become a competitor real soon. $310 for 500mbps which is half the internet speed that google fiber offers to their customers but is four times the price is not reasonable for half the speed of what they have so i suggest you get with the program and actually offer a internet speed that will live up to what verizon has referred to as being the best that anyone could have. You do not want to be like blockbuster video who lost their customers to netflix because they failed to adapt to the times.
