Delete a recorded show (legacy)

This article applies to customers who have the legacy version of Fiber TV. If you have the new version of our user interface, please view this article on how to delete a recording.

Recordings marked Delete When Full, which is the default setting, are automatically deleted to make space for new recordings. So you generally do not have to manually delete recordings.

You can delete a recorded show from your DVR after watching it or at any time to make space for more recordings.

To delete an individual show or episode:

  1. Press on the remote control, and select DVR from the menu.

  2. On the DVR menu at the bottom of the screen, select Current.

    A list of the recorded shows appears.
