Your Set Top Box, also known as STB, is a state of the art compact device given to you at installation in order to connect your TV and/or multiscreen devices to your new Digicel Play TV service.
Parental Control allows you to control the type of content available to be viewed by programme rating, time or channel.
Digicel Play TV delivers the sharpest digital quality channel whether standard or high definition channels, more HD channels than anywhere plus more interactive and personalised features to your home over the only fibre to the home network in Jamaica.
You can press the TV Guide button on your remote OR press the Menu button then highlight TV Guide and press OK. You can then press the Blue button on your remote to Search for your favourite programming by actor, actress, title, even director!
The Mini-Guide gives you a quick look at the TV programme schedule by either 2 or 5 channels at a time. The TV Guide also shows the programming schedule, but can display 5 or 9 channels at a time. You can search for your favourites while using either guide by pressing the Blue button on your remote. You can change the view of the Guides and move from one Guide to another by pressing the Yellow button on your remote.
You can add channels to your Favourites by first highlighting the channel in either the Mini-Guide or the TV Guide menu and then pressing the * button on your remote. A heart will appear next to the channel indicating that it has been added.

Digicel Play Multiscreen provides you with the ability to watch and experience all the great content of your Play TV service on your iPad, iPhone, and Android devices in your home. To access our multi-screen function, you will need to subscribe to both a Digicel Play TV and Fibre Internet service.
Your Account ID and Personal Identification Number (PIN) are the username and password entered on initial set up of your Digicel Play TV service and can be found on the inside front cover of your ‘Getting Started Guide’. Your Account ID and Account PIN will also be needed to sign in to the Digicel Play Multi-screen app should you subscribe to this feature.
Your Play TV PIN is the PIN used to set Parental Controls (lock/unlock channels, set TV ratings & time restrictions) or purchase On Demand content.
Parental Control is a feature which limits access to age inappropriate content. You are able to block by programme Rating, set a time to enforce Rating Restrictions, and Lock specific channels - all by using your Play TV PIN.
Your Parental Control password is the same as your Play TV Pin. This can be changed by going to Settings, Parental Control, then scrolling down to Change Your Play PIN. You will be prompted to enter your current Play TV PIN, which should be written on the inside cover of the Guide To Getting Started the technician left in your home when you were installed. In the event that you forget or are unable to find your Play TV PIN, you can contact Customer Care at 1(888) 935-5050.
