DIRECTV Search for Shows - Standard Receiver


If you want to look up a particular show or movie or movie, you can find it quickly by using the DIRECTV guide search. If you can't think of the exact title, try typing in an actor's name, a channel, or a keyword. Here's how:

  • Press the MENU button on your remote
  • Select Search for Shows
  • Decide how you would like to search: Title, Person, Channel, or Keyword
  • Use the number keys on the remote and select letters and numbers to type.

This search feature works if you want to find a movie for immediate play on DIRECTV CINEMA™, as well as general program guide searches. You can also search and order movies and shows on directv.com.
