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.
I have been informed that FIOS will stop carrying WSYR TV in Syracuse NY effective 1/12. Glad I don't have a service contract with Verizon, as I will be switching providers on 1/13... 75 % of my TV viewing is on WSYR...
The guide content is often not current. This is especially true with PBS programs during pledge time when they air some of the best programs. It is also a problem when local stations change their schedule in response to community or political events.
DVR recording is severely affected since it is tied to the guide. Recording happens at the wrong time or the recording title is wrong.
The local newspapers and tvguide.com have updated content. The EPG information received over an antenna is correct. The FIOS on screen guide is wrong. The content from Comcast was more current before I switched to FIOS.
If the schedule appears correct in a newspaper printed yesterday why is the on screen guide today wrong.
Provide a method to "order" your favorites so it would be easy to use the channel up/down button on the remote. That way it would be easy to keep an order to your favorite channels although they might not be sequential in the GUIDE. As an example, order NBC (HD), ABC (HD), CBS (HD), FOX (HD), Local Programming, Sports Channel, PBS, etc. This would be equivalent to an old remote from off the air viewing.
Will you please add The Sixth Sense (Bruce Willis) to the available on-demand movies? Currently it is only available for purchase as a flex-view, and all I want to do is be able to watch it on my home tv. This movie is over ten years old, and I can't think of any good reason that it shouldn't be available. Please!!!
