    Does anyone have Apple TV & Verizon FiOS? I'm trying to get a straight answer and neither Apple OR Verizon can provide me with one... So frustrating, who hires these people?!

    All I want to know is, can I stream the video from the Verizon FiOS app TO an Apple TV over airplay and have it show full screen on the television?

    Thanks in advance for anyone with a solid yes/no answer.

    i can't answer your question direcly, since i don't have fios.

    but... airserver will let your computer function as an airplay receiver, it has a 7 day free trial.
    (it makes your computer look like an aTV to your phone/pad)

    if you already have the fios app you could check it out yourself.

    No, you cannot AirPlay from the FIOS mobile app to Apple TV. The only thing it will do is instantly let the FIOS set top box change to the channel you are watching on the mobile app. I don't think Verizon is ready to give up revenue from set top boxes just yet otherwise they would've done it.

    Start the playback on the device and choose display mirroring?
