Start the FrontierTV App

DVR menu of DVR-to-Go
  • The first time you use the app, do it from home while connected to Wi-Fi from your Frontier-provided router. This lets the app do a one-time sync-up with your DVR. When you see the "Good News" greeting, it's done.
  • Important: When using DVR-to-Go in your home, do not use network extenders or mesh network devices, as these will prevent the feature from syncing successfully and DVR-to-Go won't work. Do not use a Wi-Fi network other than the one provided by Frontier.
  • The FrontierTV app dashboard features a list of viewing options. Tap the blue question mark to check the connection status and streaming features. Each Frontier DVR Experience DVR can stream content on up to four compatible mobile devices at once.

Stream Live TV on Your Device

  • When you are Wi-Fi connected in your home, you can watch all live streaming TV channels from your Frontier DVR Experience in the app. Simply connect your device to your home Wi-Fi network and choose Watch Now from the app's main menu. Select your connected Frontier DVR Experience at the top of the screen and choose your program.
  • If you have multiple DVRs, each will be listed in the navigation. You can stream different content from different DVRs in your home.
