Blue Stream Fiber TV App
The Blue Stream Fiber TV App lets you watch your favorite channels, movies, and shows from your mobile devices or via a streaming device like the Amazon Firestick.
The Blue Stream Fiber TV App offers an incredible entertainment experience with the ability to watch live TV and video on demand, and set, manage, and watch recordings.
In order to get started, make sure to have your Watch TV Everywhere (WTVE) credentials handy, since you’ll need them to log into the app. As a Blue Stream Fiber TV subscriber, WTVE gives you access to TV shows, movies, behind-the-scenes content, and more at no additional charge, and are the same credentials needed to access the Blue Stream Fiber TV app.
In home or away from home
Your TV experience will vary based on if you are streaming in your home or streaming outside your home.
Blue Stream Fiber TV App modes
The features and functionalities available with the Blue Stream Fiber TV App depend on whether or not the device is on your home network that is associated with your Blue Stream account
With In-home streaming, the streaming device and your set-top box are on the same network.
The mobile device must be using WiFi, not a 3G, 4G, or LTE connection.
In-home streaming allows you to watch live TV, watch recordings from My Shows, record shows in real-time, get details about the shows currently airing on live TV, and more.
With Out-of-home streaming, the mobile or streaming device and your set-top box are on different networks. Examples of these are connecting through your mobile data. If the Android device is connected to a WiFi network through a public library or through your friend’s WiFi, out-of-home streaming is being used.

How to use the app on your mobile device
What to Watch screen
The What to Watch screen is the first screen you’ll see when you enter the app. Use the filter strip across the top of the screen to browse for shows that are available to stream, watch live, bookmark, or record.
Search for shows
Find, explore, and watch shows in just a few taps of the screen. Give it a try:
Tap the magnifying glass icon at the top of the screen, and enter the first few letters of title of the show or name of the actor you’re interested in. A list of matches will appear beneath the search window. Tap the best match to get more information about it. Depending on the show, you can choose to watch the show, set up a recording or OnePass on your DVR, or change your recording or OnePass options.
Browse the program guide
Tap the Menu icon > Guide to browse the program guide. Scroll the guide columns up or down to view more listings. To search for a channel, tap the magnifying glass at the top left of the Guide (yellow outline in image). To change the channel list, choose the person/list icon (green outline in image). To jump to a particular time, tap the date at the top of the Guide to bring up the date selector (orange outline in image). Tap a show title to display information and viewing options.
To get to the My Shows list, tap the Menu icon > My Shows. This list mirrors the My Shows list on your TiVo box. You’ll see categories listed on the left side of the list (on a tablet) or in a drop-down menu (on a phone) to help you find what you’re looking for.
Play, edit your one pass or bookmark a show
Tap a show’s title to see the Series or Movie screen. The episode selected in the WatchList, or the movie, can be played by tapping the Play icon at the top of the screen. Or, depending on the title, you can add a bookmark (if available), edit your OnePass, delete the episode/movie, or download it to your device. In the bottom part of the screen, you can view other episodes in your WatchList, explore cast and crew, see a list of upcoming episodes, and more.
Send a show from your device to your TV
To watch a show on your TV (sometimes called “casting” a show), tap the drop-down menu under the Play icon and choose On TV.
With a recording selected, tap the download icon to download the recording to your mobile device. This will allow you to watch it when you’re not connected to WiFi. You’ll find downloaded shows in the Downloads category of My Shows.
Note: Downloaded shows are available to watch only from the Blue Stream Fiber TV App. If you uninstall the Blue Stream Fiber TV App, the downloads will be deleted from your Android device.
