Stream It All: 6 Tips for Your MidcoTV

Last updated August 2023

With MidcoTV, your TV watching is getting a major upgrade – with personalized recommendations for new shows, cloud DVR recording, access to thousands of apps on Google Play and much, much more.

Want to get the most out of your all-streaming experience? Here are some tips for your MidcoTV.1


Link Streaming Apps and Search


When you connect select apps like Netflix® and Prime Video, you can use MidcoTV’s integrated search to look for shows and movies across those apps, live TV, your recordings and ON Demand programming all at once – no switching inputs required.2 You can search for a specific channel, TV show, actor, keyword or genre.


Try Restart and Catch Up

See the green arrow icon on a channel or show in your on-screen guide? That means you can go back up to three days in the past to watch shows that aired previously on that channel.3

Miss the beginning of a show that’s in progress? Highlight the show in your guide, and if it shows that icon, press and hold the OK button to watch it from the beginning. Forget to record a show you wanted to watch yesterday? Page left in the guide and look for the Catch Up icon to watch it after the fact.


Connect Your Google Account

When you sign in to your Google account on your MidcoTV, you get access to more than 3,000 apps on Google Play – from Spotify to Disney+ to karaoke and games. Plus, you’ll be able to get new streaming services as soon as they are available.

Don’t have a Google account? It’s free to set one up.


Download the MidcoTV App


Have multiple people in your home wanting to watch different things? With the MidcoTV app, you can watch live TV, ON Demand or your recordings on your phone, tablet or other mobile device in any room in your house. That way, everyone can enjoy what they want to watch.4

Download it today on your mobile device on Google Play or the App Store®.5


Put Your Voice in Control with Google

Choosing MidcoTV with Google gives you a smarter TV experience. Tell Google to pause, play, stop or rewind. Ask questions and see answers on your screen. Just press the Google Assistant button on your remote to get started. Try saying:

  • “Find action movies.”
  • “Show me comedies.
  • “Play Ford vs. Ferrari.”

Note: You must be signed in to your Google account in order to use Google Assistant.5


Enjoy Entertainment on Your Time

Turn to Midco ON Demand for shows and movies when you want them – with up to 12,000 new titles added every month. Many of the available ON Demand titles are free, while others can be rented for a small fee.6
