In this video, we take a look at the settings and options available to you on your DVR and also show how to use the DVR to set reminders about upcoming shows.

Controlling Live TV

It used to be if you missed a moment of your favorite show or wanted to watch your favorite team catch that touchdown again, you were sadly out of luck. C Spire Fiber TV however provides you with amazing control over any show you’re watching.

In this video, we explore how to pause, rewind, fast forward, and watch TV in slow motion using the Willow Remote.

Managing TV Favorites

Studies have shown that most people watch on average only 10 or so channels yet C Spire Super HD TV includes literally hundreds of amazing All HD, All The Time options. One way to remove some of the clutter that comes with so much choice is to set up a TV Favorites list. Your C Spire Fiber TV supports the creation of up to five (5) favorites lists that are in addition to several preset lists such as Sports, Movies and Kids’ Programming.

In this video, we demonstrate how to create your first favorites list and how to filter your guide using this list. Doing so will only show the channels you’ve added to this list. Try setting up lists for each member of the family ensuring they have access to the channels and programming the love most.
