Program Your AT&T TV Remote (Streaming Device)

So get this, if you have AT&T TV and a compatible TV, your remote will program itself when using an HDMI connection.


Depending on the age of your TV, the Plug and Play program option may not be available. Not to worry, setting up your remote is super easy.

How to program your AT&T remote

  1. Press and hold both the Fast Forward & Rewind buttons
  2. Images will appear on the screen (shown below) indicating your remote is pairing.


During this process, the remote will also pair to your TV.


   Heads Up: not all TVs will pair with the receiver


Remote Pairing Troubleshooting

If you are unable to pair the remote after 3 tries, a screen will pop up that will allow you to complete the setup with the remote in IR(infrared) mode.


   Heads Up: Features such as the Google Assistant voice control, 3rd party content apps, and    software/firmware updates will not work using IR Mode.
