Too many foreign channels
Overall, this is a great app in that I love being able to watch live and sometimes recorded TV from my iPads, but it is hard to figure out why I can't block channels I'll never watch. Why does a channel like MSNBC keep showing up in my short list when they're not a favorite channel? And the Comedy channel--I don't watch that, get rid of it. And the billion sports channels and channels in every language other than ENGLISH-- why are they not blockable? I live in the US, I'd like to watch programming in my own language, thanks, and to not have to pay more to have those I'll never watch. Don't pretend I'm getting a benefit from adding those stations to my list. I'm not. I've lived overseas. If I wanted to watch TV in a foreign language, I'd go back. But I don't. Any re recorded programs. Why can I watch them sometimes and other times they just show up in a list but without a watch here button? Makes no sense.
Generally A Decent Application.
For the love of all that is holy, please let me pick what channels to display. There is no logical reason that I have to sift through 75 illegal alien channels. Give me a list of all available channels and then let me check a box to display what I want.
Overall the app does what it's supposed to do. It allows you to stream many of the channels that you have available if you're a FIOS subscriber.
My biggest complaint is the lack of being able to hide channels. I don't need to sift through 30 foreign language channels. Also, being able to block adult content from children is a must. It would be nice to allow the kids to use this app while traveling, but considering they have full access to all manner of programming, I would not be able to let them out of my sight with this app. Please Verizon, let me block the unnecessary and unwanted channels.
Pretty good; stlll needs a workable favorites system
But seriously, guys, can we stop freaking out about it displaying the foreign-language channels? There are dozens of channels in my package that I'll never watch, and most of them are in English.
On demand is much better now, though it would be nice to get stuff from the broadcast networks -- that's probably them trying to drive content to their own apps, though. Syncing on-demand content between devices would also be useful for me, though I guess there might be contractual issues there too.
