Fios TV live content on PC vs. Fios TV App content...

Ok- so I am looking to watch live TV on my PC laptop.  I log in on Verizon and go to Live TV- and a lot of channels are not available.  If I go to the Verizon TV guide section, and see all real-time listings, I see the show I want to watch, but my only option is "record."


Now, when I go to the Fios TV app on my iphone, and go to TV listings, I can choose the TV station and watch Live TV.  


How can I watch it on my computer instead???

Verizon has very limited options for viewing via PC.

My assumption is that they don't want you to use it to replace a STB (pc with HDMI output).
They control that option on app by detecting if external connection is present.

About the best you can do is find content providers websites and see what content you can get using FIOS login.
