Use the Universal Guide on your Samsung TV

You get home from a long day or settle in on the sofa for date night, and sure enough, someone utters those dreaded four words: What should we watch? Universal Guide on your Samsung 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 that only ends when you fall asleep on the couch, remote in hand and nacho crumbs on your shirt. You're welcome.

Use the Universal Guide

Whether you want to watch a romantic comedy or the championship game, you can find all kinds of programs in Universal Guide. Here’s how to access the available features:

From the Home Screen, navigate to and select Universal Guide. From here, you can select from the following:

  • TV Shows: Browse through the available shows by category or using the Search icon at the top left. You can even get reminders on your phone when your favorite show is on by connecting your TV with the SmartThings app.
