Pair up your Alexa Echo device with your FiOS® Quantum TV set-top box and start talking.


Want Alexa to change your channels? Just ask.

If you are one of the more than 8 million people using an Alexa-enabled device, listen up!

FiOS Quantum TV combines your top-of-the-line TV experience with the hands-free, easy-to-use Alexa cloud-based voice service platform you love to use. Today, ask Alexa to change the channel, search your viewing guide and video-on-demand as well as control the video playback itself (pause, fast-forward, rewind).

Go directly to the programming you want to watch, without all the clicks of your remote.

Come back to this page often to check on updates to your service, with more skills and features. You don't have to do anything to add new commands. It happens automatically.
