How to skip un-subscribed channels?

Last year, when I use the remote control to navigate channels, it will only display the channels that I am authorized to watch and skip others.

Yesterday, I noticed that Rogers upgraded its system? Now when I navigate the channels, it will do one by one no matter I am authorized or not. It is very inconvenient!! Too bad!!!!

Is there a way to watch authorized channels only? Does someone have same  problem? Thanks!

Go to channel setup and then hide channels. Click on the channel you don't want. Should only take you about an hour to do. Thanks to the at Rogers.

Omg, so that's the ONLY way?! Not just time-consuming but also I'm supposed to know what channels I'm not subscribed to, otherwise risking blocking/hiding something that is actually there. Nice.

 

How about a simple filter option? Yes Rogers firmware/software developers, I'm looking at you...

The channels that you are not subscribed to, do show up in a different color on the new update.

Mind you.. its the difference of white text and light grey text.. not a HUGE difference, but it is there. (compared to the whole block was a different color on the old guide)

Just tried the above - and the color is the same, no difference and I looked very closely... Besides, trying going into 600/700 on the list is sooo slow and lagging that it's unusuable!

Well, I checked again and it's for sure the same color, no difference. Besides as I said, it's so slow and laggy it would take hours and hours to hide them Smiley Frustrated

Re: How to skip un-subscribed channels?

Maybe we are on different software versions.

On the DEFAULT theme, on the new IPG.  Channels i am subscribed to, the 'box' around the timeslot is black, with white text.
The ones that i am UNSUBSCRIBED to, are in a slightly grey text (as oposed to the white).  Not a huge difference, but there is.

Now.. i can see this on my TV.. maybe your TV/settings are not showing enough of the contrast?

 

Though i agree.. to still find and hide them all would still take a long time.
