The Navigation Bar lets you navigate through your MidcoTV experience.

  • The Menu icon– the three horizontal lines to the left of Live TV – takes you to the Manage, Settings and Help menus.
  • The Navigation Bar lets you navigate through your MidcoTV experience. It includes:
  • Live TV goes to the last live TV channel you were watching.
  • My Shows is where you access your recorded shows, whether they’re TV recordings, from ON Demand . The shows are organized into categories, so you can easily find your entertainment.
  • What to Watch helps you discover new content. You can browse shows available for you to stream, watch live or record, organized into popular categories.
  • Guide shows you the interactive, on-screen guide, so you can see what’s on live TV and what shows are available to watch – even if they’ve already started or are over – with Restart & Catch Up.
  • Apps & Games gives you access to your streaming and other apps downloaded from Google Play.™
  • ON Demand takes you to Midco ON Demand.
  • Search helps you find shows by title, actor name or keyword. It will let you search live TV, your recordings, ON Demand and select apps all at once.
  • Notifications shows you messages from Midco regarding your MidcoTV service.

The Smart Bar predicts shows to watch based on what you usually watch at a particular time or day. For example, if you tend to watch cooking shows at lunchtime, those shows will be waiting in the SmartBar at that time each day.

  1. Press to TiVo button to go to the Home screen.
  2. Use the down button on your remote to move to the SmartBar.
  3. Use the right and left buttons on your remote to scroll through the SmartBar.
  4. Highlight your preferred show, and press OK.
  5. When the Episode or Movie screen appears, you can watch it, view the cast, see other episodes, get recommendations for other shows or modify recording options.

While on the Home screen, you can use the number pad on your remote control to jump directly to various options on the Navigation Bar.
