FiOS TV

CableCard features and services What digital programs can I watch with my CableCard?
You can view all FiOS TV Standard Definition and High Definition digital channels to which you subscribe. You can also order certain Pay-Per-View events by calling 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966). Without a Set-Top Box, you do not have access to On Demand programming, the FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide, or other advanced features of the FiOS TV service.

What programs can I watch with my DCR TV without a CableCard or Set-Top Box?
You can watch FiOS TV Local Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) local digital channels without a Set-Top Box or CableCard plugged into the Digital Cable Ready (DCR) slot.

What should I do if I want to receive interactive services, such as the FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide or On Demand programming?
You must request a Set-Top Box from Verizon. Call 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966) to request a Set-Top Box.

Can I use the FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide or Parental Controls with a CableCard?
No. Some of the advanced features of your FiOS TV service are not available using a CableCard, such as the following:
  • FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide
  • On Demand
  • FiOS TV Widgets
  • Parental Controls

A Set-Top Box is required to access these services. If you want these advanced options, you may wish to obtain a Set-Top Box to ensure access to the full range of FiOS TV services. Call 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966) to request a Set-Top Box.

Can I create DVD copies of programs delivered through CableCard?
You can copy only those programs that do not have copy protection applied, or are flagged as "copy freely" or "copy once." The FCC regulations for copy protection of digital content lets programmers determine which content you can copy, and how many times.
