Ok, so Fios allows you to watch LIVE TV    via  Iphone or Android App - no problem.  Why does fios advertise that you can watch LIVE TV via computer while I spoke to 3 reps and they say that there is no way to watch LIVE TV  on the computer  like they have it set up on the Phone APPs. 

 

I think that is really stupid and it makes no sense. Why can I watch it on the Ipod or my galaxy phone but I can not on the computer.  There is no link, no software to download, no way to watch it online.  All you can watch online are shows - not live broadcast. 

 

Maybe someone has a link to where I can watch live TV on the computer??!!!  (I understand that Im limited to channels I subscibe)

I hate this! I want to clean out my basement while football is on and take my laptop dpwnstairs. I hate iphones and do not have an ipad. I have fios tv, phone and internet. Why not connect them?

Your best bet is to go to a tv channel and see if Live Streaming is avaiable.  Like another Poster indicated, ABC is available along with Disney, among others

Hardly... at the prices we pay for Verizon FIOS, or any cable service, we should be able to stream any channel we subscribe to -- especially when connected to our Verizon FIOS home network.  TWC offers that functionality, as do others -- I shouldn't have to 'go to a tv channel and see if Live Streaming is available' -- ridiculous statement :-(

I don't think what was said was a ridiculous statement. Most channels offer streaming through their site. It's not hard to go to a website and sign in with your Fios info to view it, however I don't know why you or anyone else would say you can't watch live tv through Fios itself. All you have to do is go here. http://tv.verizon.com/

Thise are the 2 options.

Not all channels are available, but they aren't available on all providers either. Not even TWC offers all channels to be viewed online.

 

I'll also add to this. If you don't like what Verizon has to offer call the 1800 number, connect to retention, cancel service, then call someone else who can provide you with the services you want. Simple.
