Fox Soccer Channel has lost the rights to broadcast football (soccer) games from top European leagues La Liga (Spain) and Serie A (Italy). Al Jazeera Sports Network has won the rights to broadcast those games for the 2012-2013 seasons onward. They will broadcast the games on their sports channels beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 which are currently not part of your FiOS channel lineup.
Unless Verizon adds these channels to their FiOS lineup, Verizon customers in North America will be unable to see any games from La Liga and Serie A. The games won't be available online through legal channels either. This means that Verizon customers will have no access to games from such high profile teams such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, etc.
Please add beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 to the FiOS channel lineup.
Currenly there's no way AFAIK to hide unsubscribed channels in the guide and when hitting channel up/down - this is ridiculous. Clearly Verizon removed this feature in order to advertise these additional channels in hopes of getting people to subscribe to them and spend more money. Well all it does is **bleep** people off (see the forums), so please add this option.
Yes, I know I can use Favorites to do something similar, but it's a pain to setup, and Favorites should be for my Favorites, not for "all the channels that I pay for". There should be a single option, "Hide unsubscribed channels", and it should be selected by default.
IF YOU DROP AMC FROM THE CHANNEL LINE UP YOU WILL LOSE MANY LOYAL CUSTOMERS, SO WORK OUT WHATEVER PROBLEMS YOU HAVE WITH THE AMC NETWORK, WITHOUT ANY PRICE INCREASES, DON,T MAKE THE CUSTOMERS LOSE OUT ON GREAT TV.
The SEC athletic conference and ESPN announced a 20-year agreement to carry a new television network and digital platform called the “SEC Network.” The formal name is the “SEC ESPN Network.” The Network will offer SEC sports and sports-related studio programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More than 1,000 live events will be available in the first full year across the television Network and its digital extensions. This will include approximately 45 football games, more than 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games and events from across all 21 SEC-sponsored sports.
I would like to see Verizon FIOS carry the SEC Network in all markets.
My DVR is the old 80GB model. The new 500GB model has been available to "new" customers for some time now. Current customers can only get on a "someday" waiting list. Full story below. Incidentally, this is the worst treatment I get from any service I pay for from any vendor. If I could get fiber from anyone else, I'd dump Verizon.
Title says it all. Many sporting events run over the time in the guide and it would be nice to be able to extend the recording time on the DVR after a recording has started. Currently I try to always modify the stop time for live events, but sometimes I forget and it is also a waste of the limited DVR space if not needed. The only options at that point are to set up a manual recording or record the show following.
Please don't add annoying pop-ups to my tv picture - or at the very least give me the option to disable them. I don't care that CNN is available on Twitter (I already follow them) and if I want to go to Twitter, I will. I don't need to be reminded, and I don't want to have to proactively cancel the pop-up.
Is Fios TV considering adding TWC SN to their local channel lineup. They will be the sole station for all Laker Basketball Home Games. Please consider adding TWC SN. I would be willing to pay a little extra for this service.
The multiroom DVR is a great feature of Fios, but how about making it better by letting you delete recordings from the other boxes rather than just from the main DVR? It would also be nice to schedule recordings from the other boxes too, but at least start off by letting us delete recordings. Thanks.
Are we seeing this pushed back yet another year to 2010? I remember when we were supposed to have it in 2008, and just think, once you enable this, you quiet all the people wanting bigger DVRs without replacing the ones you have deployed.... (Especially if you get it to work with USB 2.0 along with eSATA)
