What is required to install OPENViewTV?
You’ll need a compatible device as specific in our first question. Beyond that, if you’ve ever installed an app, then you have all the background you’ll need. If not, one of our CSRs can walk you through it, usually in just a couple of minutes.
Where can I watch OPENViewTV?
Due to our content agreements, live TV can only be watched from your premises where you subscribe to OPENViewTV. Content that you’ve already recorded can be streamed from any location with a suitably fast internet connection.
For example, if you’re on vacation in Florida and want to watch a live baseball game on OPENViewTV, you won’t be able to do it. If you’re on vacation in Florida and recorded a season of your favorite show to watch at night in the hotel room, that would work.
How do I install the O.P.E.N. View TV app?
The O.P.E.N View TV app is installed just like any other app from your supported device’s app store. We have video guides posted for many devices in our Support Center.
What kind of internet do I need to use O.P.E.N. View TV?
O.P.E.N. View TV requires Tidewater’s O.P.E.N. Fiber Optic internet service. If you don’t already have O.P.E.N. you can plug you address into our address search form to check for service right away.
