How to Use PIP on a TV

If your television comes with picture-in-picture technology, you can watch two channels simultaneously on your screen. With picture-in-picture turned on, you will see the feed from one channel in the main part of the TV screen and the feed from another channel in a small box in the corner of the screen. Picture-in-picture options are configured with your remote control.

Step

Turn on your television and go to the channel that you want to see in the main portion of the screen.

Step

Press the picture-in-picture button on your remote control, usually labeled "PIP," to enable picture-in-picture. A window with a second channel will open in the corner of your screen.

Step

Use the remote control to change the channel in the small window.

Step

Press the "Swap" button on your remote control to change between the audio feeds of the two channels you currently have open.

Step

Press the "PIP" button again to shut off picture-in-picture and go back to viewing only one channel at a time.
