Amazon Prime app

I, too, would like an app to access Amazon Prime movies. My parents have Comcast, and Amazon movies can be accessed through the app, and they are included in the search as a choice. Unfortunately I can't get Comcast where I am. They are really more advanced than Verizon considering the number of available apps and even with the remote that lights up on movement.

I would too.  They have a connection to Amazon ( free year prime membership with new bundle)so why not the app?

Two different functions. Cable providers have incentives all the time.

Adding in a streaming provider costs more money to develop the functionalitly to add to STB. And then there is costs for upkeep and support.

Plus probably some sort of dedicated connectivity to their network to support good quality streaming.

Now THIS would be the only part of this discussion thus far - that I have read -  where bringing up Netflix would be appropriate since you basically just told us all the hardships, costs, responsibilities, etc that FiOS would... No wait DID and already have successfully made it through to offer the Netflix App. I'm sure a company with a networth of $42 Billion and climbing steeply daily could pretty easily make that same thing happen again since they must have had to and did so successfully with Netflix!! Thank you, please escalate to an actual FiOS employee with the ability to make this happen and maybe leave the responses and not-answers to forum questions to them in the future?  I'm seriously sorry this time that was overtly passive aggressive. I've had a week and perhaps I'm deflecting my frustration and annoyance with how often can I scan these forums only to find endless responses from non-employees that could probably have just not been submitted.

I really am not trying to attack just hoping to help with efficiency here and the ability to actually get the answers we are all looking for in these questions we are asking as we pay FiOS close to $200 month of not more.

Thx!

I used to be able to access Prime, Hulu, etc., through my Smart TV. Why were they removed???

Ummmm I might be misinterpreting your question but there is no connection of any kind to the apps on your smart TV and the apps on your Verizon FiOS set-top. Different companies no connection.

If you meant you used to have access to all of those apps through your Verizon FiOS set-top I think you may be mistaken and confusing it with the apps available as I said on your smart TV for example I have a Samsung smart TV where I can use Amazon Prime and have been able to ever since I bought it in 2014. However much like many other customers here I was and am annoyed and disappointed to have just become a customer and find that in 2019 FiOS still doesn't have it.

Gluck everyone I'm gonna get off her before everyone hates me hahhaha but maybe in future forum questions and answers we could step 2 what actually is being asked and only giving answers that are actually correct answers for the questions being asked? 🙄
