Verizon Fios Now Allows DVR Management Via Internet

Verizon Fios just launched a new feature that I requested over a year ago. I am not saying that I was the only one to suggest it, but I was at least one of them.

Verizon now allows customers to manage their DVR from anywhere there is internet access. This is an amazing feature because it will allow “average” customers (not tech savvy) to go online and add/delete from the DVR while at work or on the road.

For example: Let’s say that you leave for work in the morning and at noon you find out that the President is going to be delivering a speech in a breaking news situation. You can go online and add that as one of your scheduled recordings. Don’t have room, delete other items to make space. I am not sure if it is all customers right now or just the ones with the Home Media Center plan. They might roll it out to all DVRs if the community responds well to the feature.

This is an exciting feature that I think many will like if it is marketed properly. I would want a summary of the encryption it will run and be able to see a certificate. If they can fully answer that question, I do not see a single negative aspect of this feature. Isn’t technology awesome that you can remotely control your DVR when you are nowhere near your TV. I knew it was possible, but I wasn’t sure how others would perceive it. Only time will tell if it will be available to all customers which I really hope they do.
