About Google Fiber TV apps

This article applies to customers who have the new version of Fiber TV. If you have the older version of our user interface, please view this article on how to use Google Fiber TV apps.

Your Google Fiber TV includes the following TV apps that provide quick and easy access to additional content, without the need to switch to another device or TV input:

  • Netflix: Get unlimited streaming of thousands of movies, TV shows, and documentaries in HD for a monthly fee. Some of the content is exclusive to Netflix. To use the Netflix app, you'll need to activate Netflix on your Fiber TV Box.

  • VUDU: Rent streaming movies in SD or HD, and purchase movies you can stream any time. To use the VUDU app, you'll need to activate VUDU on your Fiber TV Box.

  • YouTube: Watch shared video content, such as video clips, TV clips, instructional videos, music videos, and more. You can access YouTube with or without a free account.

  • Weather: Get hourly and daily weather reports right on your TV. You don't need to activate this app.

Find content more quickly and easily: Fiber TV can search for content in the VUDU and Netflix apps and display results along with results from your Fiber TV service.
