  1. Add ability to record only NEW episodes

    Right now, i can either record everything, or just one episode at a time. I want the ability to just record the latest episode.

      • Favorite Channels List - By Profile

        Currently every time I want to go to the 3 channels I watch I have to scroll through all the channels. (I have 3 others in my family that watch other channels). It would be way faster to have favorite channels saved to my profile so I wouldn't have to scroll through channels I am not going to watch.

        • Add Football Teams to Guide

          when I watch TV on Saturdays I see lots of games called 'NCAA Football' but I have to click into the guide before I can see which teams are playing. Please don't make me click into the guide to the preview to tell which teams are playing.

          • Make Current Program Info More Easily Accessible

            Right now there is no way to see what you're watching unless you disrupt the stream and go to the guide. The show description, channel, etc needs to be on the same level that displays the guide, shows, manage recording options.

            • The Option to Save or Delete a recorded show after viewing

              I would like the option after I have viewed a show I recorded, a window pops up giving you the option to either save/retain the show or to delete the show.

              • Make Watching Next Episode in DVR Easier

                If you have multiple recordings of the same TV series, when you're done watching one episode, you have to go back through the process to watch the next episode. It'd be great if a button popped up on the bottom to watch next show like Netflix does.

                  Hi Cara – Thanks very much for your suggestion. We are aware of this need and are working hard to improve what we call the ‘post roll’ experience. So when you’ve finished watching an episode, the system is smart and will know there’s another episode available to play.

                  Your input will help us prioritize this and include it in a future release!

                • Handle Not Enough Streams in a better way

                  Right now if I have 2 streams and two other family members are watching, it just tells me that I don't have enough streams. I would like the option to 'bump' my wife off her tablet so I can watch TV.

                  • Make it easier to set future recordings

                    I would like to record a show or movie that I know has been on tv before and expect it to be on in the future. If the show does not show up when I look for it in search mode there is no way to set a recording. (For example I tried to set a recording of Now You See Me. It did not show up in the search, so I have no way to set a recording for it. The making of Now You See Me 2 showed up; another example, seasonal shows – how can I set…

                      We are investigating how best to enable you to easily be able to find and add future recordings. We’re looking at creating a ‘Show Other Times’ button on an episode or movie detail page. This would provide a list of future times when the same program will air, info on what channel / network, etc. Then you would be able to select which future playing of the show you want to record.

                          It seems to point of individual profiles is so that recommendations can be made based on viewing or recording habits but I would like an option to connect recordings to different profiles.

                              It seems like the infrastructure is there to be able to watch some shows on demand rather than having to record everything all the time. I would like to be able to search a show and if available watch them on demand.

                                Hi Tim – thanks again for all this awesome feedback.
                                C Spire TV does include a wealth of ‘On Demand’ content. The networks send us thousands of hours of on demand video content each month.

                                On Demand episodes are available from the ‘Series’ pages along with upcoming shows, recorded shows, and shows that are available to you via the Replay TV feature. Basically if you navigate to a series page like Big Brother, you will see episodes organized by season no matter where they come from.

                                • Allow scheduling of programs not currently airing

                                  The search feature for recording programs seems to only find shows that are currently on air. Networks preview programs like Christmas specials that I cannot schedule to be recorded because they are several weeks away and aren't found in a search. Another example are some summer shows that can't be scheduled now. It would be nice to be able to find a show that is not currently airing and tell the DVR to record it when it comes on. My previous Uverse service was able to do this.

                                    Hi Josh – Thanks very much for taking the time to provide your feature suggestion.
                                    At present, you can schedule new recordings up to 14 days in advance via the search interface, and can ‘scroll’ forward in the Guide up to 7 days.

                                    We had not considered some of the situations you present. And if we find that a lot of other C Spire TV customers are needing the ability to set recordings multiple months in the future, we will work hard to implement this feature.

                                    Thanks again for the input and please keep any and all suggestions coming!

                                      • Better Search on Amazon Fire TV

                                        I would like my search to Auto-complete and I would like recommendations based on the type of show or keyword (Like war shows all War-based shows on like Ken Burns Vietnam). And the search field is blocking the list of results which makes it tough to know if a show I want is shown or not.

                                        • Adding Cspire streaming TV features in addition to set top boxes

                                          It would be nice to add the streaming feature without having to return ALL the set top boxes. Being able top mix and match would be ideal and you could charge for it!
