Good evening @jj59,
Do you by any chance have your guide set to "All Channels"? If you switch to the "Free to Me" option it should remove the tips and apps/ads.
You can press the guide button twice to toggle between different options. If you want to set one of the options as default, you can make the changes via Settings > General > Default Guide View > Change it from All Channels to Free To Me.
Please let us know if this worked for you!
That’s not really a solution now is it!? I appreciate the attempt but that’s like me saying if you put on sunglasses things will have a darker tint as opposed to making a real change. I have noticed Rogers continues to make these types of changes and I hope there is someone who is taking note and that this is undone.
