How to use TDS TV+

Pausing, Rewinding, and Fast-Forwarding 🎬

Instructions for remote control differ. Please use the instructions following the image of your remote control.

TDS TV+ allows users to pause, rewind, and fast-forward shows while watching a show. You can even rewind an already in-progress show you just tuned to. Here’s how:

G1 Remote
  • Press the OK button on your remote to pause live TV. Press OK again to resume watching TV.
S6 Remote
  • Press the PLAY button on your remote’s Viewing Controls to pause live TV. Press PLAY again to resume watching TV.
  • When pausing live TV, you see a green bar showing a one-hour period. The green segment shows the portion of the hour that has been saved by your TDS TV+ Receiver. The thick white line marks your current point in time. When the white line is back in the green segment, you’re “behind” live TV.
  • You can rewind and fast-forward up to three times for three different speeds. Here’s how:
G1 Remote
  • Press OK to resume watching at a normal speed
S6 Remote
  • Press PLAY to resume watching at a normal speed
  • On Screen Features: a pop-up screen to Rewind, Fast Forward, Advance (skip forward 30 seconds) or Replay (skip back 7 seconds). You can also use this feature to start over programs or jump to live TV.
