Alex Fios tv skill

Sorry if Im posting in the wrong area. Its been a very very long time since I've posted anything.

I have successfully installed and properly working like a charm the Fios tv skill with Alexa with 1 draw back that's driving me completely nuts. I tell Alexa to change to a channel which she does but she also announces the channel to include the channel details. Example:

ME: Alexa change the channel to 512.

Alexa replays: Changing to channel 512 WPRI CBS Mornings.

Can I stop Alexa from announcing the channel?

Thanks.

I think there is a setting in Alexa app that disables detailed announcements. that might do it for you.

Thanks! That was really helpful. At least I earned a badge. 
Happy holidays.
