Access of Pay per View

Message 1 of 6

I am trying to order the UFC Payperview event tonight and Verizon doesn't seem interested in my money.


When trying to order on the set top I get a Not authorized for payperview purchases message.


The web page does not give me any option to purchase a payperview event.


And the phone service does not even list a UFC event for tonight.


My account is up to date and it is impossible to get to an actual verizon employee to find out why my service is not working.


I have ordered the shows in the past through the set top without a problem.


if anyone has an idea of how to solve my problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Hey hieroposche, can you send me a private msg with the phone number on the account or name and state of the account so I can look into the issue for you.

Are by chance these business accounts? Business accounts are blocked from PPV if I remember correctly. If they are not, then I am sure VZ_Ron can resolve it for you.


I know this is a bit late, but here is a link I have found useful.

Same here. And it is not just tonight. Every time I have tried to order a ppv I get the not authorized. Waited on hold 1 time for 45 min and tech was able to put the order in for me. Searched the web for verizon ppv issues and this is a common problem

I'm having the same problem... I have like twenty guests here specifically to watch the show and now the night is pretty much ruined at this point. 


I'm also **bleep** that I've been on *HOLD* for 61 minutes and counting and I've had NO ONE pick up the **bleep** phone.


If this is the experience I can expect to have with a simple transaction since switching to Verizon... they can soon enjoy the fact my money will go elsewhere for better service. This is complete bulls**t.
