HARDWARE: FIOS required update


 
 
 

Dear Valued Verizon Customer,

We continually strive to improve your 
FiOS® TV service and are making enhancements to create an even simpler and better experience for you. These changes will occur on Tuesday, January 21, 2014,and will cause your Set Top Box to automatically reboot, which means turning off and on. If you experience any issues with your Set Top Box as a result of this automatic reboot, please unplug your Set Top Box and plug it back in. This should resolve most issues.

Some of these enhancements include:

  TV
       
 
Adding more Closed Captioning capabilities
   
       
 
Simplifing your FiOS TV menu by:

  • Consolidating our Customer Support section, making it easier for you to use
  • Renaming your DVR Settings to Configure & Upgrade
  • Allowing you to access all of your TV listings using the Guide View header in Guide/TV Listings
 
Your Parental Controls will also be enhanced to enable you to temporarily turn them off for a period of 4 hours. This new capability will allow you to turn your Parental Controls off to enjoy an evening of TV watching without having to remember to turn them back on later. They will automatically resume after the 4 hour period. To use this functionality, press the Options button on your FiOS® TV Remote Control while watching live TV and select Parental Controls.
       

Thank you for choosing Verizon. We hope these new enhancements help you enjoy your FiOS TV service for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Your Verizon Team

I don’t see anything that I need. So why do I have to upgrade? Time to rethink the paradigms and memes involved.
