Watch video on demand

With video on demand (VOD), you have access to thousands of movies and TV shows that you can watch at your convenience. You can even stop or pause a show and start watching it again whenever you like. And because VOD programs are always available, there's no need to record them.

You'll find the following types of content in the On Demand library:

  • Free: A lot of VOD content is free of charge.

  • Free with subscription: Some free VOD content is available only if you subscribe to the channel or network that provides it. For example, if you subscribe to Showtime, you can watch Showtime VOD content free of charge.

  • Paid: Some VOD content costs a small fee and is available to watch for 24 to 48 hours, depending on the content. The fees for all VOD rentals in one month appear on your next month's bill.

To view VOD content

  1. Press on the remote control, select On Demand from the menu, and press ok.

    The On Demand page appears.

  2. Using the remote, browse the On Demand library to find the show you want to watch. You can select different categories of content and sort and filter content within a category. Learn more about browsing options, and see an example of how to find specific on-demand content.
