Contrary to popular belief amongst advertising agencies and the businesses that hire them, not everyone in California speaks Spanish. I suggest Verizon put their Spanish commercials on Spanish networks, not on major and local tv stations.
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is, understandably, an important and needed tool for public safety. Now with that acknowledgement out of the way, I have never been so interrupted by the sheer number of EAS tests and alerts as I have been at any other time. This appears to be problematic only with FiOS TV and not co-ax cable, over the air, or satellite broadcast TV providers.
Actual EAS alerts (not a test) should be limited to geographical areas that the EAS is for. Living in Southern California, Riverside County, specifically Hemet. There may be information that, while newsworthy, is not an emergency suitable to interrupt broadcasts simply too distant to be of use. Broadcasting flash flood warnings, severe thunderstorms, and the like to areas so far away it becomes comical. Santa Barbara, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Mojave Counties, this coverage is not local, this is nearly half our state. FiOS TV has targeted advertising that ensures marketing dollars of advertisers are spent and broadcast to areas much smaller than the county, so it should be no trouble to limit interruption of service the same way.
The second part of the suggestion here is to limit EAS testing to MONTHLY at most. Weekly testing? Surely the system works, does the Sheriff (an elected office) enjoy having name recognition broadcast weekly from the Emergency Disaster Control Center or the like? Probably. But having these interruptions occur so frequently leads to complacency. Nowhere else have I ever had premium channels and non-broadcast (cable) programming subjected to EAS fouling the DVR recordings for tests.
I think it deserves a look, it is the broadcaster who volunteers to these tests, but there is a line. Fire drills held as often would soon be ignored.
Based on the internet, it looks like fios has the HD version but doesn't have room for it on QAM, so it broadcasts it in SD. Since the Flyers are shot in HD widescreen, when the puck goes in the corners you lose sight of it on the 4:3 cropped SD feed.<br><br>Can this be presented in letterbox?
I received an email sayng ElizabethS has sent you a message...well I could not find ENVELOPE ICON..nor could I find where to stop these emails just to see if I could..1 HOUR I spent and read from email and got nowhere...almost like the double talk I got from signing up saying "we are cheaper that cox"..was that a revelation when it was actually more. Why do you make it so difficult to do anything in this site..actually don't why I bother to complain because it is actually easier to change providers then to get an answer off Verizon...Why not make links go to private message instead of having to fish for it.
Heres a thought why dont you make a type of ON DEMAND only service include all new pay movies and preamium channels movies and series without subscribing to channels and include every on demand available. You can call it On Demand preamium, which includes all on demand movies, all on demand new movies, all on demand preamium channels and any oher channels that offer on demand but without the regular or other cable channels just a strictly On Demand
I love cooking shows, but the Food Network is godawful. There is superior programming on The Cooking Channel and PBS. It would be fantastic if I had access to those channels via the app. We have the channels through FiOS anyway.
Your German International channel,DW is in German. It is also available in English. Since it is desugbed for U.S. audiences we could understand it betteer if it was received in English. Why don't you conctact DW and use the English version.
How about the idea of being honest in sales/marketing! Don't sell one package, then move some prime channels into a more expensive package forcing people to upgrade their plan. One buys a TV package because of the channels and shows in that package. Bad practice, and certainly deceptive to then change that resulting in one having to upgrade to get the same shows they originally purchased.
I am really displeased about this and just might go back to Time Warner Have been with them for 10 years and they never did that. I got suckered into FIOs sales and marketing ploys.
Spell check should be modified so that when the original message is quoted it does not get checked along with the response. Or at least provide an option to not check it.
Frequently when quoting messages I see spelling errors. But I do not believe it is appropriate to edit someone else's post. Thus I do not need to see their errors, and consequently have to cycle through them to get to my own.
Since I am in the elite group of people who use spell check, I hope this request gets approved. Although it is possible that those I think use spell check are just better spellers than I am.
I just want to know what the protocol is for Verizon FIOS to enter a new market, a new city. It would be a very good idea for youse guys to start up in Amarillo, TX. The reason is immediate success. Amarillo has a monopoly on everything, including Cable and Internet service. Suddenlink is the only provider in town, and it is not that good. If Verizon FIOS were to start up there, people would jump on board faster than your internet claims to be (150MB). I am sure of this. I have recently discovered Fios myself, and I love it. I'm sure the folks in Amarillo would love it, as well. I just want to get the ball rolling so the service can be up and running by the time I move back there. It is my home, and it should have the best. Get to it!
The new feature that keeps the guide views set to Favorites is convenient — one less button press.
However, one problem that now arises is that, if the current channel is not a favorite, then there's no information on it when you bring up the guide. To get it, you need to press the Favorites button to see the channel and then press it again to set the guide back to Favorites when you're done. So, maybe the current channel can be a temporary addition to the Favorites list.
And one more thing:
Actually, any channel that you enter can be a temporary addition to the Favorites list, for the duration of the session. You are entering it because you want to see that information. Again, you shouldn't have to press the Favorites button, enter the channel again to see it, and then press the Favorites button again to set the guide back to Favorites when you're done.
