Creating a Favourites list

It’s easy to create a list of your favourites, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Menu button on your remote twice to open the Main Menu.
  2. Select Setup, then Favourite Lists Setup. If this will be your first favourites list, you’ll be taken directly to the list of channels.
  3. From the list of channels, select the ones you want to add to your favourites. Selected channels will have a heart icon.
  4. When you’re done making your selections, select the checkmark icon at the bottom to save your list.
  5. Your list will be given a default name (e.g. “List 01”). To rename it, select it from the list and select the keyboard icon.

Good to know: You can have up to 5 favourite lists. To add more, return to the list under Favourite Lists Setup and select the NEW icon at the bottom.

Here are 3 ways to access your Favourites list:

  1. While watching TV, press the FAV button on your remote to skip to the next channel in your Favourites list.
  2. From the main guide or mini guide, press the FAV button to show only the channels on your list. Press the FAV button again to select a different favourites list.
  3. From the Quick Menu, select the heart icon.
