  • Missing Functionality

    Update: jump to last channel now added, thank you. Will update again if freezing subsides and other features added back. Update: the more I use it the less I like it. It freezes a lot. Needs previous functionality restored of ability to jump to last channel with one touch, seeing time and program progress without closing program, and leaving filters at last state. I really dislike using this app. It’s ok - pretty intuitive but then again I thought FIOS Mobile was, too. I miss tapping on the screen while watching a tv program and seeing what time it ends without leaving the program. I also don’t like that we can’t choose last channel watched while in a tv program, thereby flipping between two programs during commercials. Please bring that functionality back! Another thing I don’t like is having to set my filters AGAIN every time I go into TV listing. Between the two, for the way I utilize the app, don’t do away with FIOS mobile.
  • DO NOT RECOMMEND, DISAPPOINTED, NEEDS MAJOR UPDATE!!

    Unfortunately I’ve forcibly upgraded to this app since they are no longer offering the original. I’m beyond disappointed and frustrated w/ this app. It desperately needs a new update to remove the bugs and glitches it has while viewing a movie or tv show it freezes completely and the audio & video never catch up, resolution is horrible. I’m missing a lot of channels while on home WiFi that I used to have on the previous version of the app. They decreased the variety of channels they had previously & repeat of the same channels for instance the music channels and gov’t channels are duplicate & in different locations each time you load the app. Also another critical issue: the movie or show stops abruptly & reverts to the main screen over and over again. The previous app was perfect nothing was wrong with it why would you get rid of it and put this garbage in place?? Verizon customers pay so much $$$ this bs Isn’t doing us any justice @ all!! Fix fix now!!
  • Live TV gets worse and worse

    By A busy doctor and dad
    UPDATE: Been trying to be open minded about this new app, but only getting more frustrated. It’s as if Verizon has zero knowledge of how people watch TV. People like to hold the remote and flip through channels. Not with this app. No way to check out what else might be on without leaving the current program. It’s like going back to the 80s and watching cable. At least then when I turned on the TV I knew it would work. At this moment, I can’t watch news while making breakfast due to a “data error.” If I wanted to blare news from the other room, I’d get an HD antenna...so yes, I’m another step closer to cutting the cord. Lacks the “last” feature and the ability to see what’s on other channels while watching a show. And when selecting a channel, it takes you to a static screen where you have to click again to watch the show. Why require two selections to watch a show. With the money Verizon makes, you could afford some usability testing.

    Verizon, I have to ask, what is wrong with you? Have you paid for those 5 star reviews, because neither of your apps work now. You want me to delete the one that, somewhat works. It’s time to cut the cord. Lets see, fios mobile was a long time till it as actually useful. Now fios Mobil really works. So, they replace it.... this doesn’t work, yet, I’m sure they will make it work. It only took somewhere around 4 or 5 years to get the last one working. Good luck all. Ratings I wish everyone would use. Well no progress yet, now there asking me to delete fios mobile, which actually works. I don’t understand why a company thats primary function is live TV would make an app that highlights rentals in competition with others and not offer an effective alternative. If you want to be Netflix you’ll need to change your business plan. I have about 6 months till my contacts up. Good luck all. ⭐️Since there is no 0 this will have to do. ⭐️⭐️ Acceptable, but less then expected. Wouldn’t recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Met expectations. Everything worked/entertained/etc. as expected. This is the default. Your happy with what it is, and would recommend it to others. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Exceeded expectations in one or more areas. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Exceeded expectations in 3 or more areas. This should be exceptionally hard to achieve. Update: Still worthless. I probably should just get rid of this service. Minus one star.
  • Lots of potential, but ultimately disappointing

    The new Fios TV app has a lot of potential to be a great app. The new sleek design is superior to the app it replaces. But it is extremely unstable. It crashed constantly. They also took away key features. For example, the “Last” button that was available when you stream live TV was a great feature so you could swap between channels. Now, if you want to swap, you have to exit the channel you are watching, scroll and find the next one, and launch it. And to go back, you have to do the same. You also can no longer browse while steaming live. It is disappointing that they made it so limited and restrictive. Lastly, the volume on the ads is a lot louder than the programming, so I constantly have to adjust the volume when streaming out of the home. I wish they had kept the good features of the old app and just improved it. Stability, though, is the number one problem. My app keeps crashing.

    I dont really like this new FIOS app. This new app freezes often. The FIOS Mobile app would gray out a watch recording and leave all unwatched bolded. This new app displays a recorded show as “new” indicating that it hasn't been watched even after I have watched it. It also doesn’t allow you to resume watching where you left off whether you were watching from the TV or the app. If you resume watching a recorded show on your tv that you were watching on the app it starts from the beginning and vise-versa. The interface is cool. Kinda reminds you of AmazonPrime tv and other streaming services which is fine. I do like that you can skip forward and back by 30sec increments. My issues are strictly with the functionality. I’d give a higher rating if this new app performed like the previous app. Oh...and stop telling me to delete the FIOS Mobile App! I’ll do it when you fix all these issues.
  • DOES NOT WORK. HORRIBLE USER INTERFACE.

    I cannot use this app. It will not pair with either set top box. Verizon: please update! iOS 11.4.1 has been available for weeks! Sincerely, An 8 year FiOS subscriber. Update: Verizon support is abysmal. The only way to get support for the app is to request support through the app, yet the app will not accept a support request. You can call 800-VERIZON for FiOS support, but they will not take a request for app support. They will create a support ticket and assure a callback, but when you check on the support ticket it is closed ‘by the overnight back office team’. You cannot make this nightmare up. This 8 year FiOS customer is seriously considering switching to xFinity. Seriously. Verizon support is that bad. After 10 days, five trouble tickets (four closed without contacting this customer), the app ***finally*** works. I invested more than 12 hours over 10 days with VERIZON fighting their bureaucratic support silos. Unfortunately, app organization and functionality is maddening. There’s no button on the virtual remote, and you cannot change channels from the Listings screen. Verizon, you will improve your customer satisfaction by bringing back the FiOS Mobile app. If you need support for this app, you may need to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. That’s the only way you will get a technician to return your phone call.
  • Changing the channel

    By Eugene Catanzaro
    I hate the latest upgrade. Changing the channel is now a five step process if I am watching something on my tablet. The upgrade before that was also a pain, but not as bad as this. At least last time there was a "Recently Watched" section where I could just click on the last channel. Now I need to find the channel, then click on it, then it brings me to a new page, then press "watch". If I want to change it, I need to "x" out of it, go back to the watch page, then go to previous page. Find the new channel, click on that. Got to the new watch page, click on that. It seems like I spend 5 minutes just trying to change the channel, just to get to a commercial. There must be a better way. And judging by the previous versions, there was. You have made this experience frustrating.
  • not an improvement

    By Outraged subscriber
    I was quite satisfied with the old app, then Verizon sent notice to change over to new version or get discontinued. The new version is much fussier - it takes longer to find what I want, as well as to toggle between shows when I want to. When I click on a show, I want to go directly to a show - not to the info screen about the show. Worst of all, it's constantly freezing, with or without sound, then crashing the app, so I have to restart it or just give up, since I'm missing so much of the program already. Either beta-test your new versions better or go back to the old version till the new one is really ready. Stop wasting our time testing it on paying customers.
  • Don't fix what's not broken!

    Let me start off by saying I Love Verizon FIOS. The speeds for uploading and downloading are incredible. Unfortunately, even though the original FIOS app was great and it was easy to find a show, you didn't have to go though a lot of searching to find it. The NEW FIOS app made things harder. Now when you open it, it shows you a "poster board" of what's on now, so you have to go to the bottom and touch the GUIDE button, THEN you have to see what's on right now also as a "poster board" THEN you have to touch the CHANNELS button, and you get to see what's on Hi-Def channels channels 15 then 177. THEN If you want to see the FULL lineup, click the "ALL" channels to finally see what's on every channel (2-176) not counting 15. It's all a huge change for what was a great channel line up app. This is NOT as nice and easy channel guide app I used to have. The FIOS people evidently feel that everyone wants to see Hi-Def before seeing what's Not on Hi-Def. It's just another annoying way to see what's on every channel like the old app. If there is anyone wondering whats been improved on the NEW FIOS app, nothing that the old guide didn't have, but it's just a lot harder to find your favorite shows especially if it's not Hi-Def.
