Setting series recording on show not currently airing

I switched to Fios from cable a few months ago and have to say I find setting up recordings a lot more difficult and time consuming. One question I have is.....is there a way to set up a series recording when the show is not currently airing? For instance Season 2 of Westworld is starting in April and I don't want to miss recording it but see no option for setting that up now. I thought that's what Bookmark meant but I was obviously wrong as I missed the first 6 episodes of Victoria on PBS that I had bookmarked. What does BOOKMARK do?


i would appreciate any help on this.

Unfortunately no way to schedule a series if there isn't an episode in the guide.

If you can find a repeat episode, you can schedule a series based on theat.

Bookmarks are a way to save something you have searched for and found.

Maybe there is a movie you like but is only available for purchase.

Bookmark it and come back later. Check your bookmarks and see if it is finally avilable for rent.

Fios sucks! It’s so hard to record anything, even if you can find it, and it’s playing they make it hard to record it. Why would you not be able to record something if it’s not on yet but will be. Get with the times fios!

Hasn’t Changed for the better in the 6 years I’ve had fios.

I don’t understand what’s so hard. You go in the guide and find the show hit the red record button. Hit it once that is a one time recording and hit it twice it will ask if you want to record the series. 

Over the years I have had a DVR with Comcast, DirecTV, and FiOS and the functionality of all of them are the same.
