How to use the My5 TV
Watching TV just got easier. With My5, you can browse channels and shows, set reminders, or even watch programs that are currently on TV. Here’s how:
Choose your favorite channels by clicking on the channel icon next to any channel name in the guide. If you’re registered, you’ll have all of your favorite channels saved to My5.
You can access all of your favorite shows, movies, and box sets from the “My5” menu at the bottom of the guide.
To keep track of a program, add it as a reminder by clicking on the clock next to its name in the guide. You can also set a reminder by clicking on the bell symbol.
If you’re watching a program and want to see what’s on next, go to “Now and Next”. You’ll find the current show and the programs that are coming up next in one easy-to-find place.
Did My5 launch to a different guide?
If you’re using a newer model of the TV, your My5 experience may look a little different. For example, if you have a Sony TV running Android TV software, the guide will be integrated with Search and Launcher so you can access your favorite apps including Netflix and YouTube directly from the My5 menu. If you’ve set up YouTube as a favorite channel, it’ll appear as a custom tile in the main menu of the guide.
Otherwise, you can use My5 if your TV has an app launcher or home screen similar to Android TV. Here’s how:
For most TVs, press Menu on your remote and then look for a cross-head icon with options such as “TV”, “Apps” and “Setup”. If you don’t see this icon, use your remote control to navigate to the home screen.
Select “TV” to access live TV and highlights from your favorite channels.
Select “Apps” to open a menu with all of the installed apps on your TV, including My5.
Once you’ve opened the My5 app, select “Now and Next” to see what’s on TV now and what’s coming up next, or choose “On Now” to see all shows currently on TV.
Select “My5” from the main menu to see your favorite channels and programs. You can also access any reminders you’ve set, from this menu.
