So this nightmare of a "menu" is new?   I just switched to Fios about a week ago and so far I HATE IT.

To "search" for a show one is forced to scroll thru what feels like hundreds of thumbnails for every show produced since the invention of the television.  

No wonder they lock you into a contract - probably the only way to keep customers.

 

I'm really missing my Comcast/Xfinity!!!!

There is a search function if you I know the name of the show.

And holding the arrow keys can speed through a list of shows.

Actually, at this point, it is old.  But yes lots of people continue to hate the changes.  There are ways to search, not that that is well implemented.

Scrolling through this mess is hard too as it hangs after every four or five thumbnails so holding down the forward button is useless.  Even switching channels hangs one moment and jumps the next.  I hate this so much that I want to disconnect from cable entirely about twice a day.  If we did not have elderly mom with us who lives for tv we would have said goodby to Verizon long ago.

Posting this here in hopes that someone w/ any power at FIOS sees this. The FIOS TV UI is terrible and needs updating. Also the remote is laid out very bad. I was very excited to switch to FIOS but am now totally underwhelmed by the experience. Please update it soon.

Not likely to be anyone at Verizon with any power to change anything.

I give up on Verizon’s on demand, I am ready to throw a brick at the tv, if I had one that is. How much harder can Verizon make using their service, not much i’d say. I can’t wait until my contract is up.  It’s way to expensive for what they offer. I’am sick of seeing the same old tired shows from the last century. And even the shows from this century are repeated over and over. Showtime is a joke, they show the same movies on every one of their channels over and over and in the past eight months I’ve only seen two movies that I could enjoy. Hollywood has lost their sense of humor.

The networks show what they show. Verizon has nothing to do with what movies Showtime plays over and over.
