Most channels died 90 minutes ago

in-home agent gives me a code and an 866 number

called

asked 20 questions then dumped in dead air

tried online support, keep getting popup robot assistant but no way to speak to an agent

asked robot 

got dumped in an error queue with 'please wait' message

nothing ever happened

tried again with same results

With Cox I got a human on the phone who dealt with the situation.

I changed for this where there is apparently not even tech support available???????

I held on phone for over 45 minutes waiting to speak to a tech regarding missing channels. Channels came back on before I spoke to anyone. Thought the issue was fixed so I hung up. Big mistake TV channels kept freezing after that. So much for support, you're on your own with FIOS.

FREAKING HILARIOUS but sad

93 minutes unable to get help

channels finally came back on

I switched from Cox ONLY because of better bundle prices on Quantum for same channels

At least with Cox, I could get a live person on the phone and get my problems solved

Have you tried the troubleshooter options under menu > support?

Or just try rebooting your router and/or STBs.

FiOS is an excellent service ---- WHEN it works.  But, since the company has NO employees, it has nothing but recordings for service. 

Solution example:  Quote

Turn your TV off.  Turn if on.  Did that solve your problem.

NO!

Thank you for choosing Verizon.

End of debacle.  It only gets worse from there.
