Use the Detailed Info screen

The Detailed Info screen appears whenever you select a movie or an episode of a TV show, or when you press on the remote control and then select More Info for the show you are currently watching.

Some details about the show appear on the right side of the screen. Depending on the show, these details might indicate when the show will air or when it was recorded, the date it originally aired, and the genre(s) of the show, as well as how long the show will be available. If you are trying to watch a series in chronological order, the date it originally aired might be important to you.

On the left side of the screen are some of the following options, depending on the situation:

Option Description
Play Now Allows you to play it now, if the show has been recorded or is available on video on demand or a Google Fiber TV app (VUDU or YouTube). Includes the cost, if any.
Play Trailer Allows you to play a trailer for the video, if it is VOD and includes one. Press  on the remote to return to the Detailed Info page.
Play Live Allows you to play it now, if it happens to be airing now.
Play From Start Allows you to play it from the start, if it has been recorded, even if someone has watched part or all of it.

Record Allows you to record the selected show.
Cancel Recording Allows you to cancel a scheduled recording of the selected show.

Delete Deletes a recorded show.
Set Keep Forever Allows you to keep a particular recording forever (or until you delete it).
Clear Keep Forever Allows you to remove the Keep Forever setting from a show, so it can be deleted if space is needed.

In the center of the screen, you can select the following tabs:

Option Description

Cast/Crew Displays a list of actors in the show, including guest stars, and the character played by each. It sometimes includes a list of executive producers and other people who worked on the show. You can select anyone on the list to search for other shows associated with that person.
