Verizon FiOS on Demand App Hits App World for Storm2 9550 Users

When Verizon first rolled out their FIOS app it was just a DVR controller for users who had FiOS . Verizon announced earlier this month that they had a new FiOS on Demand app that would let BlackBerry Storm2 9550 users download movies to their BlackBerry over Wi-Fi, 3G, or side loading them through your PC. It was supposedly available since the 7th of the month but Jacob could not find a download link for it since they were all dead links at m.verizon.com/apps.

Jacob let me know that Verizon has since submitted the app to App World as of yesterday and you can now download the 1.5mb FiOS on Demand app from there. This app is all based on Flex View On Demand from Verizon which is also only available in limited markets. The concept of Flex View is that movies you purchase or rent are viewable on up to four devices in any combination along with your FiOS tv.

While the idea is pretty cool Verizon really is targeting a niche market with this app. You need to be a Verizon FiOS customer living in a market with Flex View on Demand and you need to have a BlackBerry Storm2 9550 AND you need to purchase a Flex View movie… How many customers do you think that has? What they really need to do is just let ANYBODY purchase or rent a movie on ANY BlackBerry. Nobody has really done that yet!

  1. You don’t need to be a Fios customer to purchase/rent a movie. But to purchase or rent a movie the user just has to register online with Verizon. Thats it!!

    • Hey man how and where do i go to register so i can buy movies on my fascinate?and what do i do after i register? iam going crazy looking on how to do that….

  2. Nothing niche about this product – I don’t have Fios at home, but download and watch movies on the phone and PC. Flicks play on my Storm2 as well as Droid X.
    So the part about having to sign-up for Fios and live in a certain market is totally wrong.
    Now, if only the prices for the movies were more competitive than iTunes or Blockbuster, then this would become a killer app. Right now, it’s just one of many movie rental choices, and unless you have Fios (how many people do?), it’s just the same old stuff.
