I had a post come up on my tv indicating that between November 7 - 21 I would be upgraded to FibeTV, i'm wondering if there is a hardware change with this? Am I going to need a different box, remotes, etc?

FibeTV uses the same hardware as the older MTS Ultimate TV. There will be no need for a hardware change. This change is similar to the guide update that occurred earlier this year.

If you want to get the update sooner than waiting for the push, I  found out that unplugging the power to your set top box will cause it to reload with the new Fibe package when the power is restored.

Any idea if the app will work. One thing I would like about this.

Pretty sure the Fine TV app is coming. They specifically call out restarting a show from the beginning. It's likely all customers get the upgrade first then they start staging new features.
