Find Your Favorite Shows
The TV Guide lists hundreds of channels, and that sometimes makes it hard to find your favorite shows in the list. Use DIRECTV’s "Find By" feature so you can easily locate a program by title, actor, keyword or channel.
If you’d like to see the latest movie recommendations or maybe what your horoscope is for the day — just go to the DIRECTV Active™ Channel. Simply press the "Active" key on your remote and you'll find interactive services, such as weather, horoscopes, lottery results, recommendations and more.
DIRECTV wants you to find what you are looking for quickly and easily. Now you can mark a place in a program if you want to come back to later. The "Bookmarks" feature helps you keep track of where you left off, or find places you'd like to jump to quickly.
On-Screen Caller ID
When the phone rings right during the best scene of your favorite movie, let DIRECTV’s On-Screen Caller ID be your new knight in shining armor. You’ll see who’s calling right on your TV screen, so you can decide whether to pause your movie and answer, or just call them back later.

Experience at-home movies just like you’re in the middle of a movie theatre with Dolby® Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.** It’s the same format as Blu-ray ™3.
Don’t let an improper television show spoil your children’s DIRECTV experience. Just use the Parental Controls option and your kids will never stumble on something they shouldn’t be watching.
