Well, Verizon has finally come around to bring the app to Android users, although it does come with some problems...

What's up with the cookies and the Russian stuff?

Anyways, FiOS needs to come to my area because U-Verse sucks and is really overpriced.
No surprise that the Verizon app is slow. They take no time or effort to develop their bloat, they just make sure it slows the phone down.

1st off why would HBO be on it. Every smartphone can get HBO go which allows you to watch HBO anywhere. So again why waist room on the app to do it there.

2nd All cable providers have it blocked to only work with you home wifi which is stupid like you put but now a downside since they all do it. Honestly your best option if you want live TV on your phone is slingbox or verizon now sales something from belkin which claims to do the same I just havent tried it yet. Dont even bother with these cable apps they are a joke.

Bigest downside with the fios app. I have Comcast now and one of the reason I chose comcast over Fios is because their app while only allowing me to watch tv live like fios does however allow me to record the shows to my phones Sd card. It also give me full access to on demand and strimepix. So if there is anything I want to watch I can save to phone and watch it later. Yes thats not live but a great feature that Fios needs to get in this app.
