FX Now

Really, I cannot watch the FX channel on line because it isn't available to Verizon FIOS subscribers?  Not happy, especially since Sons of Anarchy is still not available on demand.  Get with it will you?  It's not like I don't pay a fortune to Verizon all ready, now I have to order DVR and cut other things to do so.  Makes me want to cancel everything.

I can't believe with what I pay and have paid Verizon (and their previous names of which I stayed with) over the past thirty years and I can't get FX or FXNOW. What kind of decision making board do you have there? I want to see Sons of Anarchy and I can't because I have stupid Verizon. This is totally ludicrous! Makes me want to switch to XFINITY. THEY HAVE FXNOW. So why doesn't Fios get with the program !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why aren't verizon customers allowed to access the FX Network? Is it something in the agreement between Verizon and the FX Network or are there technical difficulties that cannot be overcome at a "reasonable" cost to verizon?

What gives Verizon? Your customers deserve an explanation!

When is Verizon FIOS going to get the FX Now app?

I want to be able to access any Simpsons episode as promised.

Trying to get a response from Verizon is driving me crazy.

I call customer service and they are very nice but basically say they don't have any info.

If it's being negotiated or whatever, they would not be told.

They say that happens at corporate level.

Verizon already carries FX and FXX.  Why can't we have the app to stream it on FX Now?

Every other carrier, it seems, from Comcast to Time Warner to the most rinky-dink providers is on the FX Now List.

Is there a way to contact someone high up enough in Verizon to get a straight answer?

(And not just passing along this request via customer service.)

Verizon is very behind when it comes to the streaming services. FX now, fox sports go, msg go are all not offered. Stop being cheap skates and get with the times Verizon! Not to mention I can't watch my local NCAA basketball team play because Verizon doesn't offer CBS sports unless I upgrade to a more expensive package. I mean it's CBS SPORTS! Every other basic sports channel is available like NBC Sports and Fox Sports but not CBS! That's completely ridiculous. Thinking about switching back to Time Warner. Was with them before this. They offer more channels and aren't cheapskates when it comes to the streaming services.

Nothing is broken.  Verizon did not pay the extra (or it was not an option) when Verizon signed a contract with FX.  When it does get added you can expect another rate hike.

What a joke.

No streaming FX for Verizon customers?

This thread has been going for years and still no resolution.

Time to cancel and switch to DIRECTV!!

Well you'll still be disappointed then, because Directv doesn't have access to FX Now app either.

Agree... I'm in Afghanistan still paying Verizon's crazy high prices, and they have 50 channels no one wants to stream... I finally get good internet.. and no FX... SMH

In my opinion, if you're serving your country over in Afghanistan, Verizon should be providing your services there free.
