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.

Amazon prime movies can be seen on iPads or iPhones and android devices as well as on home laptops and computers. Roku or chromcast devices and through Apple TV 

you just need your prime login email and password to view content.

fios is not the only way to access prime.

I agree.  It is ridiculous that Fios doesn't have an app to allow people to stream Prime Video or NetFlix.  As much as I like FIOS, I may have to switch back to Comcast just to get the features they offer.  Verizon is way behind.

Netflix is available as a channel on your STB. It is 838 I believe.

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.

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

Agreed, but FIOS should not be taking access from our TVs. That’s just crazy and will lose them customers. My TV came with access and now has none. Crazy? Yep.
