Flex View is best for FiOS customers who watch on-demand choices occasionally, but Netflix is the better choice for people who want unlimited movie viewing. FiOS on-demand Flex View charges a rental fee for each movie or TV show. Netflix charges a monthly fee for unlimited streaming.
Verizon Flex View rental fees vary with a movie's age and popularity. In 2015, "Mad Max 2: the Road Warrior" rents for $3.99 in HD. Disney's 2015 film "Cinderalla" rents for $5,99 in HD. Another restriction for FiOS customers is that HD rentals are not currently available on mobile platforms. Netflix charges between $7.99 and $11.99 for unlimited streaming service and requires only an Internet connection.
Verizon FiOS movie rentals require FiOS TV or Internet service and is not offered nationwide as of 2015. Netflix is available throughout the United States.
