Recently switched from optimum to verizon. Extremely disappointed in the fact that I cannot watch live streaming tv of all my channels on my laptop like I was able to with optimum. Verizon gives you the impression you can, only allows limited live tv(stations I can already get over internet(i.e. CNN) and old tv episodes. What a joke. Switching back as soon as I can.
the new set top boxes are not a good idea they dont indicate chanel or time it is not a good idea i am used to seeing the time and chanel now i cant these boxes should be fixed to show both
The DVR does have the clock/channel display, just not the HD STB. But I have had two HD STBs for well over a year now, no issue to me; if the TV is on, I just hit OK to see the info banner that includes the time and channel, if the TV is off I just look at the clock on the computer, the clock on the wall, or my clock radio. Really a simple non-issue IMO, my wife and I adapted in about a week.
The current boxes cannot be "fixed", they simply do not have the display built into them.
There is a clock/channel display on the new VMS boxes, both server and client, that Verizon plans to deliver later this year.
Me too!! We finally can watch live TV on the IPAD but still not on Laptop!
