Increased Availability, specifically Amarillo, Texas.

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 subject line says it all.  

 

Please add ShortsTV, the short film channel.  DIRECTV offers the channel.

 

These are the folks that show the Oscar Nominated shorts each year.

New Guide - Favorites Enhancement Tweak +

Status: New Idea
by custom on ‎01-17-2012 05:43 AM

Previous description:

 

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.

 

Thanks (again).

WSYR TV 9

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... :smileysad:

Guide content not kept current

Status: New Idea
by BillKerr on ‎01-06-2012 07:27 AM

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.

Allow series recording from remote STBs

Status: New Idea
by on ‎01-06-2012 07:10 AM

It should be possible to program a series recording from any STB, not just from the DVR.

Status: New Idea

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.

On-Demand movies

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!!!

Billing convenience fee!!!!!!

Status: New Idea
by njh2oskier on ‎12-29-2011 12:34 PM

Are you serious!!! 

You want to charge us for paying our bill?

You better,  

1. hire more people to go back to opening paper payments,

2. hire more people to log the paper payments,

3. pay more to mail my bill because I'll be signing back on to getting paper bills if I have pay postage to mail my payments (just 

              to make this whole deal more costly for your company),

4. wait for my bank to cash my paper check before you get my payment.

5. OR fire the genius that came up with this convenience fee plan!!!

Sincerely,

One hot customer

WFLA /Tampa also on chopping block

I'm guessing that more than just two markets are being threatened with the loss of NBC programming.

All the comments regarding WJAR apply here and I doubt Verizon could survive without NBC and its affiliates.

But PLEASE Verizon, try to settle this contract issue quickly!  As another new Verizon subscriber, I too would have to consider alternatives if this becomes a reality.

More Emphasis on Fios Chinese: Cantonese, TVBe

Status: New Idea
by Daigor on ‎12-27-2011 03:54 PM

 

Hello Verizon,

 

I would like to make a suggestion an address the Chinese community regarding the international package. (Fios Chinese: Cantonese, TVBe). The monthly price for this one premium channel is $16.99 which I feel is outrageous considering that the majority of the other international packages come with at least 2 channels. Ex. Chinese (Mandarin) or Filipino. Some of the other international channels feature 2 or more channels and cost less than $16.99/month.

 

I also would like to mention that this single premium channel is not featured in HD. Charging customers for a single non HD program for $16.99/month is taken advantage of the large diverse Asian community who solely rely on this single channel as a form of entertainment.

 

My suggestion to Verizon is please add more channels to this package or lower the cost to justify having just one channel in the lineup. Thank you.

Guide Suggestion

Status: New Idea
by zagman76 on ‎12-26-2011 09:15 PM

Hello - I think a great feature for the Guide would be to have the ability to 'jump back' to the channel you are currently on.  This way, if you've scrolled several pages 'down' you could 'jump back' the the current channel, rather than having to scroll all the way back up.  Thanks!
