Set up your TV Player

Please remove all plastic wrapping from your BlueCurve TV Player prior to installation.

  1. Attach a coax cable from the wall outlet to the CABLE IN port on your BlueCurve TV Player. If the coax outlet is already being used by your modem, you can use three coax cables and a splitter to connect both devices to the same outlet, as shown below.


  2. Turn on your TV.

  3. Attach an HDMI cable from your TV Player’s HDMI Out to TV port, to one of your TV’s open HDMI ports. Note the TV port’s name.

  4. Attach the power supply to the back of your BlueCurve TV Player, but do not plug it into an electrical outlet yet.

  5. Remove the plastic pull-tab from the back of your BlueCurve TV remote.

Next you'll need to activate your TV Player. Scroll down for instructions.

Frequently asked questions

Where should I place my BlueCurve TV Player?
Place your BlueCurve TV Player in a visible, well-ventilated area near your TV, an electrical outlet, and a coax cable outlet. If you plan to hide the BlueCurve TV Player, wait until after it is activated.

How can I wire my modem and TV box to the same coax outlet?
If you have two devices that need to share the coax outlet, you’ll need a 2-way splitter and 3 coax cables. Attach one cable to the wall outlet and splitter port labelled IN. Attach each of the other two cables to an OUT splitter port, and then to your TV box and modem.


How do I use my BlueCurve TV voice-powered remote?
Press and hold the microphone button. When the word Listening appears onscreen, talk into your BlueCurve TV remote. Release the microphone button to submit your voice command.

Press and hold the microphone button on your BlueCurve TV remote. Say either "Netflix", "YouTube" or "Prime Video" to open the app. You may need to follow on-screen instructions to sign into those services.

Please return your old equipment as soon as possible to avoid unreturned equipment charges.
