I'm so done reading endless and useless information on here for something that is extremely simple with other providers....HOW THE HELL DO YOU STREAM LIVE TV TO A LAPTOP???  I dont want to go through a ton of banners again only to find tv episodes that I can choose from, I want to watch what is currently playing on the network station. Any clues???

What you are asking for does not currently exists without 3rd party equipment.  There were hints that it might be made available in the future with the VMS box.

Hey rjperry2012 -

 

True, the live streams available in the FiOS Mobile app are not available for streaming to desktop computers.

However, you can watch all of these channels live at My Verizon, provided that you sign in with your UserID and password, and you are in a FiOS TV package that includes the channel you are trying to watch.

Some of these channels have East/West live streams you can pick from.

Also, these programmers generally have their own websites and apps where you can sign in and watch the live streams as well. And some (like Showtime) don't stream live at My Verizon but do stream live at their own site / app.

What about MSG?? I want to watch hockey on my windows 8 laptop.  Why are you limiting my access to a certain number of channels?

I do this with HDHomeRun PRIME box http://www.silicondust.com/products/hdhomerun/prime/  and a $5 per month cable card from Verizon.  Works nicely with Windows Media Center and functions like a DVR.
