July 26, 2016

Here’s how to get the most out of the GCI Video on Demand – VOD service with GCI TV powered by TiVo:

  1. Press the ON DEMAND button on the top of your GCI TiVo remote control. This will take you to the main screen – TiVo Central.
  2. On TiVo Central, you’ll see a list of categories (like ‘New,’ ‘Drama,’ or ‘ Comedy’) to choose from. Highlight the category you wish to browse and press SELECT.
  3. If you are offered sub-categories like “Movies,” “Free” and so forth, choose a sub-category and press SELECT.
  4. A list of available videos is displayed. You’ll see the video’s price, and when you highlight the video, you’ll see a brief description in the right column.
  5. Once you’ve located a video you want, highlight it and press SELECT. This will bring you to a screen that gives you more details on the video and, in many cases, allows you to watch a free preview.
    • If the video is free, the information screen will have an option to ‘Play.’ Select ‘Play’ to start the video.
    • If the video must be rented to view it, the information screen will have an option to ‘Rent & watch now’ (the price will be listed). Select ‘Rent & watch now’ to order the video. You will be asked to confirm your purchase by pressing the THUMBS UP button on your remote control.
    • If you can not select “Rent…”, you may need to check to see if the channel is selected in the TiVo settings. Learn how to adjust your channel settings.
