Use the on-screen guide

With the on-screen program guide, you can see what shows are playing now and up to 2 weeks ahead. You can also view past program listings to find shows to record when they air again or watch on demand. The guide makes it easy to browse channels to find shows to watch, record, or learn more about.

You can also use the on-screen guide in the Fiber mobile app for Android and iOS.

To view the on-screen guide:

  1. Press  on the remote control. 

    Or, press on the remote, select Guide from the menu, and press ok.

    The current show is selected. Information about the show, such as the episode, original air date, and a brief description, appears on the left. A blue line under the time bar and blue shading show your place in programming that's airing now.

    • If you created custom guides: The last guide viewed is the one that appears. 
    • If you see grayed-out channels: They're not part of your Fiber TV subscription, so you can't select them.
    • If you've blocked individual channels with parental controls: Those channels don't appear on the guide.
    • If you prefer a larger font for the guide: You can change the font size.
  2. Using the remote, browse the on-screen guide to find the show you want to watch.
