Verizon Creates Reality Show Out of FiOS Installations


In its quest to boot cable out of the home and replace it with FiOS, Verizon has launched a home upgrade reality show of sorts, My Home 2.0, which will be aired on TV as well as the web and include social media concepts such as blogs and YouTube videos. Five families in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will have a team of techno types come to their homes and outfit it with the latest and greatest Verizon has to offer.

The installations and block parties held in each neighborhood will be recorded and placed on the My Home 2.0 website, YouTube, Facebook and Verizon's FiOS on-demand cable channel.

If a reality show about people living on an island can sustain itself, we suppose a show about people getting new home technology toys could fair just as well.

Hi have Verizon Fios and I wish they would come make a show out of me sitting on hold for 5 hours talking to their customer service rep or on hold. You see I signed up online, never received the bonuses promised and now the can't login to view detailed billing (that was charged to my Visa card)- why? In order to login you need your account number of statement; yet if you sign up online-they don't send you a statement unless you also get phone service. So endless loop hell. The picture quality, features are great- the customer service blows!

wow I am really sorry you have had this experience - if you drop me an email i'd be happy to look into the billing issues for you, and thanks for the note that even with problems you still like FTV! enjoy.
