When I try to watch a current show, like ABC, it sends me to a page to select my provider.  I select Verizon FiOS and enter my logon info.  It then just says a bad command was sent.  How do I get past this?

Time Warner Cable had a very user friendly system to watch live TV on a laptom.  ALL subscribed channels were available with a quick click from the guide.  When I looked into switching to FIOS, the salesperson told me that I would have the same service from FIOS.  Now I learn that only a very few of the networks I watch are available for live streaming and most of the time I get the run-around with password sign-in, huge buffering (I have the fastest Verizon broadband and superfast processers), inability to connect etc.  The live streaming feature was misrepresented by Verizon and I am not getting the value that I thought I was buying.

I appreciate the effort but this post isn't a solution and shouldn't be marked as such. FIOS doesn't support watching live TV from a laptop. If I am wrong then please correct me.

All channels no...some channels yes.  See my list below and please comment if you know more channels

Yeah, not the same thing.  Other cable providers offer true wireless viewing of live TV or DVR recordings.

When I attempt to go to the above link, I end up here after I log in:

No options there for watching TV on my laptop.

Which ID did you log in with.  It has to be the ID you set up when you set up your FiOS.  If you're using the ID From before your FiOS - then it might not be properly linked up.   You might need to call Verizon for that.
