For all our Brazil users, during the set up, please enter only the initial 5 digits for your zipcode instead of the full zipcode.

For e.g 79013  instead of the full zipcode 79013340

This will list out all the available service providers for your zipcode. Do not enter the entire 8 digit zipcode. This is a known bug and we are working on the fix.

Please refer below screenshots:

Ans: For few service providers like Comcast, there are multiple channel line ups in certain regions. In this case, make sure you select the right option if the channel is reflecting, on particular channel number, while setting the app. If you’ve already set it up incorrectly, please go to Settings in the app and select Rooms.


5.  Why is my Set-top box not working with the app?

Ans: Some of the set-top boxes are set to receive RF signals whereas the WatchON app works in IR mode. In this cases, please check in the manual of your box to set it to IR mode.


6.Why my AV receiver/Stereo is not reflecting on the app?

7. How can I add another TV in the app?

Ans: In order to add another TV, you will need to add another Room. Tap on the Menu and select Settings and from here tap on “Add Room”. From here, you can setup another TV.Please refer the below screenshot:


8. Why am I unable to delete the devices without resetting the app?

Ans: You can delete additional devices like the AV receiver, Blu Ray player and DVD player but not the devices, like the TV and set-top box, which are to be configured during the initial setup. For TV and STB’s, you will have to reset the app and relaunch the app with a new set up.

Ans: Please Go to Google Play store and type WatchON in the Search Window. 

Here, you can select the WatchON app and tap on update to get the latest version.
