Getting Started with TDS TV+

How do I navigate TDS TV+ from the home screen?

The Home Screen is the starting point for just about everything you do with TDS TV+. From the Home screen, you can easily access popular destinations, get personalized recommendations from the SmartBar, What to Watch daily recommendations, and watch the currently playing show.

To get to the Home Screen from live TV or any other screen, just press the TiVo button on your remote control or press down on the navigation pad while watching TV.

Navigation Bar

Home Screen menu items, which display across the middle of the screen, take you to commonly used TDS TV+ screens. Use the navigation buttons (up, down, left, right) on your remote control to move between menu items, and press the OK button to choose one. Use your remote’s BACK button to go back to the previous screen.
