I have had Verizon Fios for about nine years now. As soon as I heard that it was going to be available in my town, I called to schedule an appointment to have it set up in my house. I had my Fios within the first week of service in my town and I love it. You could ask anyone who knows me in real life and they would tell you that I should be a Verizon Fios spokesperson because I speak so highly of it. Over the last nine years, I have not had one single issue with them. Not one. I think that says A LOT about how great their service is. That is why I am thrilled to be partnering with Verizon to bring you some additional information about their new service in the Boston area.
Verizon Fios isn’t just internet and TV service anymore, though. Did you know you can stream your favorite television shows and movies anywhere with Fios On Demand? Most of the TV shows are available for free for Fios customers. Newly released movies can be rented or purchased, too. Since my family has a couple of road-trips coming up this summer, being able to stream our favorite shows in the car is going to be a lifesaver.
If you are looking for some shows to binge on this summer, look no further. Here are four great TV shows you can watch on Fios On Demand this summer:
Life in Pieces
Accomplished actors Dianne Wiest and James Brolin star as the heads of a large, happy family, in which each member is approaching different milestones. Their eldest daughter, Heather (Betsy Brandt) and her husband consider having another child as they get closer to an empty nest; middle child Matt (Thomas Sadoski) thinks he has found true love; and the youngest of the three siblings, Greg (Colin Hanks) is overwhelmed after having his first child with his wife. Various perspectives are employed as each family member’s story unfolds.
This is one my my husband’s and my favorite shows. It’s absolutely hilarious and we find ourselves having to pause it all the time because we laugh so hard over some of the things that happen on the show. If you are looking for something light-hearted and fun this summer, watch Life in Pieces. You’re welcome.
As a lower-level cabinet member, Tom Kirkman never imagined something would happen that would catapult him to the oval office. When a devastating attack on the night of the State of the Union address claims the lives of the president and most of the Cabinet, the Housing and Urban Development secretary — who was named the designated survivor in case of such an event — finds himself promoted to leader of the free world. Suddenly thrust into his new position of power, Kirkman struggles to keep the country from dissolving into chaos and must adjust to his new normal, unaware of what fresh horrors may await the United States.
I started watching this because I have had the hots for Kiefer Sutherland since he was in the Lost Boys. Yeah, I am that old. Anyhow, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this show is. It’s action packed and there are all sorts of plot twists that keep me on the edge of my seat. There has only been one season so far, so you can catch up pretty easily on this one.
Law and Order: Special Victims Unit
Detectives who are part of the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit investigate crimes against the vulnerable. While the focus of other shows in the “Law & Order” franchise is primarily on murder cases, the SVU detectives frequently deal with rape and assault, in which a survivor assists with the investigation. The series cast of veteran actors includes Mariska Hargitay and rapper Ice-T, and occasional crossover episodes feature detectives from other series including editions of the “Law & Order” franchise and as well as “Chicago PD,” another series from the mind of executive producer Dick Wolf.
This show has been on for 16 years for good reason – it’s good. You wouldn’t think there would be enough different scenarios on this subject matter to fill 16 seasons worth of episodes, but there are. They are always coming up with new storylines and keeping them fresh.
Budding entrepreneurs get the chance to bring their dreams to fruition in this reality show from executive producer Mark Burnett. They present their ideas to the sharks in the tank — five titans of industry who made their own dreams a reality and turned their ideas into lucrative empires. The contestants try to convince any one of the sharks to invest money in their idea. When more than one of the sharks decide they want a piece of the action, a bidding war can erupt, driving up the price of the investment.
My hubby, Christian, and I jumped on the bandwagon late with this show, so didn’t watch it from the beginning. This summer is a great time to catch up on all those early seasons, dontcha think?
I am working with a team of bloggers to help get the word out about the new Fios service coming to Boston and I am being compensated for sharing my opinions here, but trust me when I tell you this – my love of Verizon Fios is real. We watch a lot of TV in our house and I am so excited about Fios On Demand.
