Verizon FiOS doesn't get new digital multicast channels

Now that broadcast stations are switching over to digital, they can ''multicast'' so that they can offer more programming. For example, on a digital tuner receiving over the air signals, ABC would be available on channels 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, etc, with different programming on each channel. However, cable and FiOS, which are not affected by the digital switch, do not pick up these additional stations. Why not?

Solved that problem by installing and over-the-air antenna and am in the process of firing my cable company. I will retain their internet service and go to a base package on satellite for the likes of my kids' favorite networks (Nick, Cartoon Net, Disney) and my Fox News Channel), but my programming options are already growing from 7 analog to 13 digital from off-air in recent months and another 2-5 different subchannels are likely in my market in the next 24-36 markets (for free). Why pay to watch commercials when they are free?

Did you have it before? If you are going through a cable box switching to a digital channel and tv could have it on another station. Call your provider.

No local channels


your locals may be broadcasted on a a different satellite (directv uses 7 different ones). when u travel, your dish on your rv might be capable of receiving the satellite that broadcasts normal programming. the dish on your home may look a little different and picks up more than one of the satellite signals. also these satellites are in different locations

FIOS / Cable box needed?


Greetings mjt444,

It appears that with basic FIOS you will recieve between 15 and 49 channels. You would most likely need to consult with Verizon to find out more specifics on that. As long as your television is high definition ready, it should not matter what type you purchase, however one with an internal tuner would be preferrable. I would ask your local sales person what type they recommend. The sales staff in any Best Buy™ store should be qualified to answer these types of questions.

I hope this helps.

Verizon FIOS Motorola 6200-2 HD box remote freezes


i'm a verizon employee currently working at a customer's house. just swapped out 3rd 6200 stb, the channels will seemingly change on their own(scrolling) after pressing the remote just a few times. the root of the problem is that the remote is not responding to the stb in the first place properly. all i can figure is that there is some type of ir interference. i've placed the remote 1" from the stb and the same problem exists. it's not the box and the remote is brand new, tried 3 remotes as well. there is something going on in the atmosphere around the box - in or outside the custmer's house. they were on vacation and when they came back this is the trouble they were having. i don't have an answer, just some type of possibilities. there is a power transformer outside on a pole approx. 100' from the house and we had bad storm related issues in the past week. i know it's a stretch, but you never know. could be surround sound/ stereo equipment generating some kind of field??????????? good luck.
