Widget Bazaar Upgrade

Message 1 of 18

When will I see the twitter and facebook widgets that are shown on the fios tv central page?

It shows them as available by pressing "A" on your remote. I do not see any new widgets listed

in there.

You may need to scroll thru all of the available Widgets using the Right Arrow on the remote until you get to Widget Bizzar, where you will firn Facebook and Twitter.

I tried pushing the "A" key it gives me the same results as pushing the "+" key. I scrolled through them all.

I still have just the basics like weather, traffic, horoscopes, etc....

Press the widget button on the remote.  Press the right arrow until you get to widget bazaar and then press select.  As far as I know pressing A or any of those buttons has no affect.

I think they must be rolling the Widget Bazzar out gradually across the country, it was not available to me last night but is present this morning here in North Texas.

 

And yes, as matcarl said, the A button does launch the Widgets, just like the Widgets button does.

I just tried out Facebook .. cool, but is there anyway to display more of the text shown on the Friends - Status Messages when it is greater than the few lines being shown truncated on that summary screen?  I tried the Info button and page up/down just scroll the friend's status message list.  OK button puts me into that friend's picture albums.  If not today, something being worked on for the future?  My friends tend to post lengthy status messages.  Thanks.
