I see with the new update you can hide all unsubscribed channels with one click. BUT now you can't hide the on demands. what a pain in the ....

A solution has been provided in another thread.  Make all of your visible channels favorites, then unfavorite the OD channels.

 

When you want to view the guide, press the FAV button instead of the GUIDE button and VOILA...no On Demand channels.

Are there really that many On Demand channels?
I hid the channels I'm not subscribed to and find it a convenient feature. For me, the handful of On Demand channels I have to skip by compared to the way it was is barely noticeable.

Anyone know why Rogers won't let us program the netbox to skip the On Demand channels anymore?

I can't see the point of not being able to skip on demand channels that I'm not even subscribed to.

 

I'm starting to wonder it there's a committee at Rogers that sits around dreaming up ways to annoy us.

In another thread, a workaround has already been found.

 

Favorite the channels you want to appear, then use the 'Favorites' button to access the guide.  No more VOD channels.

A very poor workaround as then I lose my option to have actual favorites.

 

Still doesn't explain why they made this useless and annoying change. I certainly can't see the point.

Anyone from Rogers want to answer that?

This is a user-to-user forum, so Rogers employees generally don't answer questions here.
