We are watching Verizon FiOS on demand
We’ve watched a fair amount of movies using Verizon FIOS on demand, and I gotta say, I feel like this image is indicative of the entire experience. This particular picture is from when we tried to watch Dallas Buyers Club, and as you can see, it did not go well. We ended up abandoning the Verizon set top box and streaming the movie via Verizon’s website, which worked OK – there was a weird aspect ratio issue, but it was still watchable.
Image distortion issues are just a piece of the puzzle; we’ve had problems with pausing, rewinding, HD… it just goes on and on. But, we just keep going back for some reason. I guess we love convenience.
To be fair, we have had problem-free experiences – they’ve just been few and far between. Hopefully, as time goes on, the service will improve.
