Free Netflix for existing Verizon Fios customers - upgrade to Enhanced DVR required

-2 Deal Score
4,666 Views
I contacted Fios chat about the free Netflix promo for new customers and asked if existing customers can avail. Basically you need to upgrade to the Enhanced DVR ($5/month in my case) and pay for an upgrade fee of $50 (CSR offered to waive this fee after it posted to my account) and the delivery fee of new equipment (you might be able to pick up the equipment from a Fios store to save).

So you get Netflix and an upgraded DVR (record 6 shows at a time, 500GB storage) for $5 extra per month. Netflix alone cost $7.99 per month for Basic subscription.

If you look at it that way. Some may like Netflix in addition to their Fios service. There are shows that are Netflix exclusive. I didn't personally sign up though, just posting this just in case somebody wanted it.

I guess another scenario is if you already have the Enhanced DVR. Just ask for the one year free Netflix promo. Smilie

Probably depends on the person you chat with. I did Support > Order/Change/Cancel Services > Add/Change My Service - select Chat Now.

Verizon tried to sell Netflix to me for $10.00 more a month when I inquired.

Just tried with Chat. They claimed it for new users only. I told them my friend just got the offer and he is an existing customer. They came back and said they would give me the offer with the upgrade to DVR Enhanced. Which would raise my current price to another $12. Told them that would be the same as buying Netflix separately. So basically, not a deal for existing users.
