A little over a year ago my daughter went and spent the night at her best friend's house. It was a sleepover, like any normal one with tween girls—I assume it was loud, with lots of giggling, make-up tips, talk of who was crushing on who, and, of course, some movies. When I went to pick her up the next day, I asked how it went. "It was great", she said, "We watched a bunch of cool shows on their new cable box. It's a lot better than ours. You would like it." My daughter knows me, between sports and movies, I love some quality TV time. I hated our cable company, I actually had just sent off my fourth DVR box in 18 months. My daughter and I kept losing all of our favorite shows due to the thing not working properly. A major headache. So I called her best friend's dad and asked him what cable provider they had. He told me it was Verizon FiOS. I started to do my research and found out that I had been with the WRONG cable provider.
Verizon FiOS has Custom TV where you can get shows that you and your tween enjoy the most.
The Kids Channel Pack has all of the channels she loves!
The FiOS Quantum DVR has some great features:
- Record up to 12 shows at once
- Enjoy up to 200 hours of HD storage capacity
- Pause, play and rewind live TV on up to 10 screens
- Now you can stream shows to your compatible mobile device right from your home DVR
Another plus for Verizon FiOS is that the DVR is super easy to use. Our last DVR was complicated and terribly unreliable. She loves that she is able to stream all of her shows on her phone, too.
I'm all about the sports packages — Right now hockey season is in full swing at my house!
The Sports Plus Channel Pack includes:
Regional Sports Networks
One World Sports
SEC Network Overflow*
Making the switch to Verizon FiOS was truly a breeze. After I confirmed the service was available in my area, I made an appointment and within an hour of the van's arrival we were up and running with Preferred HD, Quantum TV and High-Speed Internet. It didn't take long for us to realize that we made the right decision— we've been enjoying Verizon FiOS for a little over a year now with zero complaints.
Verizon FiOS has actually brought my family closer together because we now make time to watch our favorite TV shows and sporting events. I'm learning all about Steven Universe and my daughter is beginning to like hockey. It's a win-win for us both!
Fios sounds like an amazing service. We have a different cable provider right now, and we're not happy with it at all.

We're actually with a major competitor of Verizon right now, and we're not super happy. Fios might just be what gets us to leave!
We've actually been toying with the idea of getting fios. I appreciate the insight as we're in a similar position as a family with kids!
I love the package deal idea. It would be great to get all the channels you enjoy.
I have heard amazing things about Verizon FiOS and really hope to see them in our area soon. The Kids Channel Pack would be a must for my youngsters and the Sports Plus Channel Pack is perfect for my husband and I.
As soon as our contract is up, we will be looking more into Fios. It looks like an amazing service!
Kids do know best 😉 This is so cool how many can get FIOS, we don't have it in our area yet, but when we do? I can't wait to get it!
Honestly i never heard about the Fios but it looks a great service. gonna check this on my area

Thank you for your thorough review!
This looks like it has all the things a kid would want.

I have FIOS and love them. I think I'm addicted to their On Demand. It's so easy to see the latest movies. Some are offered when they're still in the movies! And some before they come out on DVD. Love, love, love them!
I just cut my cable provider two weeks ago. But they haven't cut it off yet so we are still enjoying cable TV for free. BONUS!!

Fios isn't available in our area yet, but it looks like it may be on the way. We don't get TV signal without a provider. I'm ready to switch if something better and affordable comes along.
We've been Verizon Fios since day one - though we're happy with our service a s always gave been, they too k away my husband 's hunting shows- woooo - I'm happy but don't tell him
We definitely could use both the sports package AND the kids package. Looking into this!

We love our cable provider and I would be so bummed out if we did not have a good one. Glad you got hooked up with a better situation.
The kids are always telling me about the latest & greatest too. I'm not loving our current television set-up so I need to check this out.
This is a great review. I am glad you got hooked up with the best of the best!
I have Comcast and would love to try another provider. I have heard great things about FIOS.
Is it only my browser or somebody else too has this
