Not as good as Comcast-- very disappointing.
Update for the recent updated version: WHAT HAPPENED TO CBS IN MY CHANNEL SELECTION???????? The channel selection is a collection of the worst-- or best, if that's your taste-- in reality programming. Ugh. Oh well, back to podcasts and my streaming services... wait....why do I need Verizon TV at all? Hmmm...
How can a company the size of Verizon have an app that crashes and today, doesn't know I'm a customer? Having used Comcast for years, I'm very disappointed. There's no pause button, there's almost no ability to see "catch up" episodes and there's a very limited selection of TV shows for online viewing. The channel selection has expanded, but still no PBS. All of these features were available on Comcast, and I'm considering a return. I use online viewing much of the day, and miss being able to see what I want. Add to that the lack of hot spots, and this is costing more and more time and $$. Hmmm....
Bad user experience, bad buffering problems
This is an updated review. Basically, everything I've written below for the previous version still holds for the May 28, 2015 update...
Having been a Time Warner Cable customer, and using their iPad app for over three years, I find this app to pale in comparison. FiOS is several years behind Time Warner in how this app functions and how one navigates through it. It also has much less to offer.
Areas where the FiOS app is severely lacking:
1. Major buffering problems. The stream freezes every couple minutes. As I write this, it is pretty much unwatchable.
2. User navigation is clunky and visually ugly. You know... you really don't need to make the various network logos so big.
3. Image is low resolution.
Areas where the Time Warner iPad app is superior:
1. Many more local stations are available
2. You can change "channels" without having to exit out of the current one. Touching the screen allows the user to see what else is on and jump between them.
3. On Demand offerings are deeper and have more-complete series. Plus, the On Demand on Time Warner is higher resolution.
Overall, I'm amazed that a technologically superior company like Verizon, who offers the fastest internet connectivity around, has such a badly designed, badly coded, badly serviced iPad app. Because, you know... more and more people watch television on their iPads.
I just had an episode (no pun intended) with this amazing application. I had to share it with the world. My father is always listening to the TV inconsiderately high, and it's always a task to get him to turn it down. While I'm laying in my bed, sleepy as ever, I know I cannot possibly get a good rest with the blaring sounds of progressive commercials. 😒 I think to myself, what am I to do? I then remember I have this wonderful app installed on my phone. Immediately I change the remote setting to the one I have in the living room and turn down the TV myself, with no hassle. Thanks to Verizon, I could enjoy my sleep with no Flo from Progressive telling me about her snapshot. Thank you so much Verizon! This is genius.
