Family Movie Night with FiOS

Whatever your daily rituals and lengthy To-Do list’s may look like on a daily basis, there’s no doubt in my mind that time quickly passes us by.

From morning drop off to work to after school activities making sure that homework is done, dinner is on the table, whether it be take out or actually made in my kitchen and the kids are in bed by a reasonable hour. Let’s face it, it’s a busy world out there and despite the fact that we are all given the same 24 hours in a day, it’s often hard to find time to relax and spend quality time with the ones we love.

Family Movie Night with Fios

If your family is anything like mine, it is full of entertainers both big and small and family movie night with Verizon FiOs is our go to! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love cuddling up on the couch with siblings, and cousins and a few big bowls of popcorn laughing the night away? With Verizon FiOs my family has access to rent or buy the newest releases or our favorite classics right at our finger tips!

We are repeat offenders, and I’m sure you are as well so we always lean towards buying movies opposed to renting.  I mean either buy or rent you have access to your movie playlist via the Fios mobile app, which comes in very handy for road trips or on the plane.  Yes, I do expect a thank you for that tip.  Truth is the Fios mobile app saved over 80 passengers this passed weekend aboard a Delta flight from having to deal with the wrath I call Gia! Luckily wifi kicked in, and Zootopia began, as I finally exhaled.

Even though it can be hard to get us all in one room together, and requires planning, a family movie night with Verizon FiOs with over 130,000+ On Demand titles you can bet that family movie night is and will continue to be a regular occurrence in our home because every moment that we spend together as a family counts.  Especially as we recite the lines of our favorite movie, and sing along to our favorite theme songs, laugh and cry together.  I know this time together will leave us with memories that will last a lifetime.

Tell us your thoughts…

What is your favorite family movie to watch?

Do you typically rent or buy your movies?

    It’s been so long since I done a family movie night, I don’t know what my fav would be. I tend to rent from Redox or watch something on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon prime.

    We don’t too many movie nights anymore since everyone is grown up. But I always watch movies on Netflix, since I have a never ending list. Lol

    Oh gosh, my typical family movie always involves either CG characters or action-packed Marvel/DC movies. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Fios, no wonder it’s from Verizon!

    My family usually go out on cinemas whenever there’s a big film to be shown. This FIOS sounds amazing though. Might take a look soon.

    I loved family movie night as a kid. We used to go to a movie rental store. It’s neat that fios is around to let modern families still have movie night!
