Annoying time remaining display every time you change the channel

Just Moved In

Its so annoying to get that black bar on the bottom part of the screen,covering important text,game scores etc, every time you change a channel.Its also useless. Who cares to constantly know how much time is left in every program every time they change the channel? If ever you did,you can simply press "guide".Please get rid of it.

I hear you and agree. I have been asking for a setting to turn this "feature" off ever since it was introduced. This and the Home Screen "feature" on power up are the bane of my Optik experience. They are small annoyances that gets repeated over and over again every time I turn on the TV or change the channel.

@xray The home screen can be turned off. Just hit Options on the remote when it's on the screen.

@Nighthawk thank you! I searched all the settings and options previously but never thought to try options while the home screen was still displayed. Out of habit I exit the home screen as soon as it shows.

 

It's a terrible design to only give you the setting when the home screen is displayed. How would you turn it back on since there is no way to get the option now?

I agree and I’m wondering why this feature can’t be turned off similar to the latest addition to Optic TV, Home Screen feature. Do the designers of these features not see how annoying it is to block out our viewing similar to pop up ads we have no control over.

I remember calling Telus when this was first introduced and pleading with the rep to remove this. It never was done, and yet I have no choice but to arrow over on my remote to remove it.

Ill ask again, PLEASE REMOVE THIS ANNOYING FEATURE!

TELUS will likely not remove the feature. The best we can hope for is a setting to disable it. All automatic in-your-face features like this should be optional. I really hate it when software designers have the "my way or the highway" attitude towards users.
