Traffic Reports?

Message 1 of 7

I had FIOS installed last night and the technician showed me it was possible to display traffic updates on local highways on the TV. How do I access that using the remote? Thanks.

I guess it could depend on where you are located whether you have a Traffic widget at all, but for me, once I start the Widgets with the Widgets button, all I have to do is keep hitting the right arrow or left arrow until the Traffic widget appears, then the down arrow or up arrow to see different reports. When you hit the left or right arrows you don't see all of the Widgets in succession?

Are you a 1.9 tester?  If so, it may have been removed from that version.

I usually have to go to the widgets main menu when I first set it up.

 

so try menu  > widgets and search for it there.

Okay. I see it now. After initiating Widgets I was pressing OK to see all widgets, but traffic isn't there. But if I don't press okay and scroll to the left or right I do see the Traffic widget. Thanks.
