How show only authorized/free channels when searching?

Message 1 of 2

All the many options I can find for searching or filtering both live and on-demand listings/schedules include non-authorized and pay-for-view channels, and force me to select the channel/program before showing that I am not subscribed. For example, when selecting movies category and scanning through the list, I must select a movie I want to watch to determine if I am subscribed.  At that point, a screen is displayed announcing that I am not authorized, and which offers no options other than to subscribe. I can not return to the point where I selected the movie so that I can continue my scan. The only way I can get away from that screen is to press the + or - channel button. Very time consuming!!  Is there a way to exclude all unauthorized or pay-for-view channels from search, categories, program schedules?

That would be a great feature which I asked for years ago.  Verizon did add the search and a single click to invoke seach.  Both of those were added after I asked in the ideas section.  Verizon actually acknolaged them as good suggestions in the ideas section but the free program search was never addressed.  I noticed over the years Verizon does NOT add/change features that take away from their revenue...


For example:

1) No free program search -- always have to sort through ridiculously priced ($14.99) flex view movies

2) Always see flex view ($14.99) first and need to search more to find the exact same movie for free (this very seazy borderline criminal)

3) Verizon adds on demand channels randomly in the guide which is VERY ANNOYING.  Many have asked for it to removed

4) Ridiculous pricing for any package less than triple play.  ie phone can be added to double play for no charge or $5.  My triple play package/2 yr contract  now costs the same as just internet access (month the month)  **bleep**?
