Maybe you're stuck in line at a DMV and it feels as if time has slowed down. That long car trip where you're the passenger? It seems to be taking forever. Flight delays, waiting room visits that never end. You get the picture. Or do you?
If you’re a subscriber of Verizon FiOS (available in select markets) these mobile apps let you kill some time by doing some serious binge watching, or get lost in a cool action movie, even if your beloved flat screen isn’t nearby or available.
Here’s the skinny on Verizon’s FiOS apps:
Verizon FiOS Preview
If you're not yet a Verizon FiOS TV subscriber, this app is for you. Discover what FiOS is all about-no commitment required. Just download for a free trial run and stream shows to your device. You can even save some money by exploring current FiOS promotions.
Verizon FiOS Mobile
If you’re a subscriber, you can take control of your TV watching with this app. Play live TV or Video on Demand on your compatible smartphone or tablet—perfect for killing time while waiting at the doctor’s office or when the kids have taken over the TV.
Rest easy when a meeting runs late or when date night lasts longer than you thought it would. The app lets you manage DVR recordings, check the status of your DVR and schedule new recordings when you're away from home.
And a bonus for when you’re home, the app turns your smartphone or tablet into a TV remote control.
