Live TV Streaming

Message 1 of 13

If Live TV streaming is only available on certain devices like iPads, Android devices, Xbox 360, Samsung TVs and NOT computers, why does Verizon advertise this feature on a laptop in a huge image on their Live TV streaming page?

If you click on TV networks there are some that will let you watch Live TV, such as Disney Channel etc. but what a pain to have to click on each network to see if there is a live stream avaiable.  Seems like the easy of watching Live TV is geared more toward Tablets and not PCs.  We have the Fios IPAD for the Ipad and that works but like you said, the same is not available on the PC.

That's not very helpful. Please tell me how.

 

I know you can watch a couple of channels live (ESPN, CNN are two that come to mind), but I'm not aware of being able to watch all the ones listed in the graphic live online, nor in one central location (you have to go to individual sites to watch).

Sorry, can't help, but I agree. Other companies like TimeWarner have a PC option to watch live TV. It is one of the features that I truly miss from TWC.

From this page, go to the "My Verizon" tab above--hover but not click.  In the "TV and Movies" column, click the first entry, "Watch TV Online"


Near the bottom, scroll through the "featured" networks available.

When I click on the featured networks, I'm not seeing live streaming - just lists of available episodes to stream.
