Sometime this evening we lost most of our FiOS channels. Local channels are fine, everything else reports a "You are not subscribed to" message on the screen.
I called the tech support number list on the screen and it sent a reset signal to my boxes. No dice. I was then transferred to tech support and the CSR said that there is a problem with 3 hubs in my area. The expected completion time is tomorrow, 2PM.
This is the first outage in the year that we have had FiOS TV. Not used to this.
At least you got through. I've been on hold over 30 min listening to the hold music.
Which number did you call? I called the number on the screen, 866-962-1946. I reached a bot that asked for the code on the screen. It tried to reset my STB and when that didn't do anything, it transferred me to tech support. That number is 888-553-1555.
It's strange because I am getting local channels and video on demand. Plus the Internet still works.

I gave up after 45 min on hold, now on hold again. I will likely just recheck in AM. I am frustrated that there is no recorded message or message on their website explaining the outage. I too have local station, phone and internet.
Seems the problem is now in Harrisburg PA. I've been on hold for almost an hour, ran the STB reset tool and autocorrection a couple times without positive results. Guess I might have to give watching TV through the internet a try or break out a book...
Update...on hold for over an hour but the customer service rep was able to run a couple of commands to my box and now I'm back up and running. I would suggest you have plenty of patience and your issue will eventually be resolved. The customer service rep stated he hasn't had one person this morning he wasn't able to get back up and running.
Hey Guys - Thank you so much for your help! I am in Albany, NY and was having the same problems with FiOS. Almost all channels saying that I need to subscribe. I reset the box using the advice given above and it fixed it. Verizon kept saying the channels were out in my area indefinitely!! What BS'ers these clown are!
Not sure why they didn't add the old recorded mesg reporting an issue we remember from nearly everytime calling TWC for anything. Maybe they really wanted the one on one customer experience? lol Either way, it was a quick fix and a hiccup in the grand scheme of my fios experience. Note: That was the first time I have had to reboot my stb since I added Fios 6 months ago! And my tivo has never had to be rebooted thanks to the lack of a tuning adapter with fios. Still a house of happy Fios campers!
