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!
I have the same problem and have yet to find a solution. I just got C Spire TV and intended to get rid of Direct TV but now I'm rethinking my decision due to the inability to record upcoming shows. I seldom watch a show when it comes on so I just set them to record for several months in advance and watch when time permits. Just can't do that with C Spire.

Yes! This is the entire reason I came to this page. When I left my previous cable company, I had a list of shows ready to record in the new season. Now it is painful to try and set these up on the app.
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 something to record when a new season starts? Spring Baking Championship, Holiday Baking Championship, Halloween Baking Championship, Pumpkin Carving Championship, etc.)
