Create custom guides

You can create additional on-screen guides to make it easier to browse your channels. For example, each person in the house can have a guide showing favorite channels, or you can have guides based on types of channels, such as news, reality shows, or programs for kids.

To get started, from the main menu, navigate to Apps & MoreSettings > Customize, and select Manage next to Customized Guides. The Customize your own Guides screen appears. If you have not yet customized or created a guide, the default guide appears.

To select a different guide
  1. Use the down arrow button on the remote to navigate to the guide you want to customize on the left side of the screen.

  2. Select the guide you want to customize, and press ok.

    The name of the selected guide appears at the top of the left column.

To change the name of a guide
  1. Select the guide whose name you want to change according to the instructions above.

  2. Select Rename this guide.

    The Rename the Customized Guide screen appears.

    The current name of the guide appears at the top of the left column.

  3. Using the on-screen keyboard, enter the name you want to assign the guide, and then select Done.

    You return to the Customize your own Guides screen, and the new name of the guide appears at the top of the left column.

To customize a guide
  1. Select the guide you want to customize according to the instructions above.

    The channels appear in the righthand column. If a channel is included in the current guide, a check mark appears to its right. If no check mark appears, the channel is not included in the guide. If a cross-hatch pattern appears on a channel, it indicates that the channel is blocked and will not appear in your custom guide, even if you select it.

  2. Press the right arrow button to highlight the first channel listed, and then use the down arrow to navigate to each channel you want to include or exclude from the guide.

    You can use the channel up/down button on the remote control to scroll up or down a page at a time.

  3. To add or remove a channel from the current guide, simply select it and press ok.

    If you want to include only a few channels in the current guide, consider selecting Clear all channels, and then you can select the channels you want to include.

To create a new guide
  1. Navigate to Create another guide, and press ok.

    The new custom guide appears at the bottom of the list and is automatically selected for you.

  2. Select Rename this guide.

    The Rename the Customized Guide screen appears. Follow the instructions above to change the name of the guide.

  3. Using the on-screen keyboard, enter the name you want to assign the guide, and then select Done.

    You return to the Customize your own Guides screen, and the new name of the guide appears at the top of the left column. Now you can customize the guide as described above.

To delete the displayed guide
  1. Use the down arrow button on the remote to navigate to the guide you want to delete on the left side of the screen.

  2. Press ok to select that guide.

  3. Navigate to Delete this guide, and then press ok.

    A message prompts you to confirm that you want to delete the guide.

  4. Select Yes, and press ok.

    You return to the Customize your own Guides screen, and the selected guide is no longer on the list.

After you create one or more custom guides, you can view them by going to the on-screen guide and pressing  on the remote control. Press again to display another guide. The guides appear in the order they are listed on the Customize your own Guides screen.

You can also use the Fiber mobile apps for Android and iOS to create custom guides. Your custom guides appear on every Fiber-connected TV in your home and in the mobile app, whether you created them on a Fiber-connected TV or on mobile.
