Samsung TV - Use the Universal Guide

You get home from a long day, and sure enough, someone utters those dreaded four words: what should we watch? Universal Guide on your Samsung Smart TV has TV shows, movies, and sports all in one place. You can search for content you want to see, and the guide even makes recommendations based on your preferences. No more prolonged, aimless browsing.

Note: The provided information refers to Samsung Smart TVs sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for devices sold in other countries.

Whether you want to watch a romantic comedy or the championship game, you can find all kinds of programs in Universal Guide.

On most models, navigate to and select Universal Guide from the Home screen (by pressing the Home button on the TV remote). For 2020 and 2021 TV models, open the Home screen, and then press Down (on the TV remote) to locate the Universal Guide.
