    I was wondering if anyone who has a Verizon GS4 can confirm if WatchOn is installed?

    It is installed and maybe I'm missing something, but I find it useless. We have Dish Network both in our home and in our RV. Changing channels requires you to move up or down one channel at a time. I can't find any way to select the channel number and then move directly to it. Without that, it's pretty pointless. It does turn on the TV and change the volume levels but that's incidental without full channel controls.

    Must have been one of my "dumb" days when I tried Watch On. Thanks for the details and pictures, sometimes I need 8x10's and drawings with arrows to see the obvious! That does make it more useful and I'll give it another try.

    Ohhhhh HECK YEAH!!!!!!! I didn't even think about that. And to think I disabled it. This is in itself a noble and worthy calling for the S4! Bars, doctors offices, sports restaurants, everywhere TVs are blaring at you 24/7. I feel like a light has dawned Thank you!!!!!!

    Sounds like you guys are enjoying WatchON. I just setup my account, and am here to help. Do you guys realize WatchON is a lot more than just a remote? WatchON offers a complete entertainment content experience for live TV, on-demand programming, online content, complementary content and social. We are constantly working on new features too!

    I just stopped my directv, it was way to much money for as little TV as I watch. How can I utilize the WatchON to watch TV?

    I have direct tv, so far I can't figure out how to scroll a whole page at a time instead of one line a time for the guide or dvr page. Anybody know how, or is it not possible? Thanks

    If not possible, future update enabling this would be nice.

    Hi Joe,

    as mentioned above, to watch Live TV, you need a "cable" or "satellite" provider. If you want to watch shows like "arrested development," or "Monk" etc., you have the option in WatchON to do a search across content types (VOD - movies/TV) and it'll show you what's available to rent/purchase. We are working with some well known content providers (I don't know where you're located), so I'd recommend doing a search within the app, and see what's available. Let me know if I can answer anything else. BTW, follow us @SamsungWatchON for a few upcoming promotions, and updates we are preparing to release

    Best,

    Eric

    Is there a list of which products WatchOn works with. I am only asking because I can get WatchOn to work great with my Sony TV, but I can only use the basic features with my Sony Entertainment system. Any information would be great b/c this is one of my favorite apps on the S4.

    If you go to the DirectTV tab across the top of the remote, hitting the up and down channel scrolls by page. Then you can go up and down each one using the other directional keypad

    Ahh... that takes me back to 2003 with my HP iPAQ 2215 and its built in NEVO software & consumer IR, and later PDA Win software (which could use CCF's from Phillips Pronto remotes ) although Nevo was on the previous gen iPAQ's too.

    Live TV does not mean New Episodes. Live TV means the programming that is currently in the programming lineup. However, sometimes TV shows say that they are live because they are filming it in real-time (New Year's Rockin Eve), but that is not the context it is being used in here.

    Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong here. I have the watch on app programmed to my TV, blue ray, dvr via cablevision, and my Denon AV receiver. The problem is with the receiver. I can turn it on and off, but I cannot adjust the volume at all. I have no clue as to why this doesn't work. The app gives me a pop up and ask which device I want to control the volume with and naturally I choose the receiver, but again nothing happens when I press the button. I shot over a service ticket but no reply just yet. Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong or am I missing a step here?

    Hmm. Perhaps try to reprogram the reciever? This time, the first time it turns the reciever on (or off) ignore it and keep going until the reciever turns off(or on). It sounds like the ir protocol that watchon is trying to use for your reciever sort of works, but isn't the specific one for your receiver, if you're following my logic. Anyway, give it a try. I used to have a tv that would turn on or off with certain codes for universal remotes, but for other functions only a specific code would work.

    Same problem here with my Sony receiver. So I still need another controller, i use my app to see whats on and have to use the AV controller to adjust the volume. Seriously thinking of ditching the watchon app and purchasing a better one in the play store.

    I sent an email for more help on my issue with watchon, but have not received a reply just yet. Then I discovered smart report for s4 on the play store. All I can say is..... I can control my TV, blu-ray, av receiver, cable box, and my air conditioner in my living room. Sweet!
