Fios TV Apps - Windows

Just wondering why Verizon doesn't have a Windows based app for Fios.  You sell the phones.  Shouldn't you support the OS?

I wouldn't expect an answer anytime soon. I have been waiting for an answer since 2012.

My only real complaint with Verizon FIOS is the lack of Windows app for my phone or tablet. Sure a lot of Windows 8 PCs and tablets out there that need an app. Would sure seem that this could be addressed after years of questions on this.

Verizon is not at all Windows focused.  In fact, in my opinion they are don't know Windows exists (well that's an exaggeration, sorry.)  When their FiOS Mobile app first appeared on IOS and then Android.  Whenever Windows browsers are updated their websites break and take forever to be fixed, even though the updates are generally available to developers for testing well ahead of the general release of those Windows products.

What really get's me **bleep** is not only will they not release a Windows or Windows phone app, but they won't make an API available for someone else to make one..

Lack of of a windows apps for FIOS TV is another reason I'm moving off FIOS to something like Sling. Forced set top box expenses is another reason.

Even if you have the app, channels are limited to subscribed channels.
