Verizon Fios Channel

it would be great to have a Fios channel similar to what you have for Xfinity and Time Warner.  It seems like the network channel apps have sporadic issues, so it would be great if Fios users could have their own app as another option.  Plus we would be able to record from other channels that PlayOn doesn't currently have apps for.

    Most channels have sporadic issues. Most times that the various sites redesign anything the channel needs to be updated to match. Also I suspect some channels break and aren't popular enough for anyone to request they be fixed.

    In that case, the more cable provider channels (Xfinity, Fios, etc) supported, the better.  That way resources can be devoted to a specific provider app instead of the individual apps (except for broadcast channels for cordcutters).

    It doesn't seem like this community is very large (to get the voting support for Fios), but, here's hoping.  It's just frustrating to have partial/failed recordings to filter through on a regular basis and it would be nice to be able to record from other channels that may not have a standalone app.

    Having developers that, collectively, are customers of each large cable TV provider seems problematic. And where do they draw the line? And because there is a line somewhere, it doesn't relieve the need for having individual channels for the various cable networks, like you're suggesting. I am sorry to rain on your parade though.

    Perhaps a TiVo or Plex DVR with a HDHomeRun Prime (either would require a cablecard) would help you?

    Omg David S, what skin do you have in this game? I have been waiting for a Verizon fios channel to be added before buying Playon and still nothing. You aren't helping. Why would you be opposed to an enhancement that will open up several million more potential users? Adding channels should be a matter of course. PlayOn used a modular channel plugin design for this very reason! If they do not want to add channels themselves, there should be an SDK for 3rd parties to be able to, if there isn't already.

    The Big 7 tv providers are Comcast, Verizon, Spectrum, AT&T, Charter, DirecTV, Dish. Those should be included as a minimum. There are a lot of smaller players that already have channels.
