Is it possible to block specific channels you are subscribed to, eg. all the preview channels

I want to block/remove all those preview channels from even showing up on my guide let alone in the channel rotation when I flip through channels up and down on my remote.

 

The vast majority of the tv channels I receive with my "essentials" package I never use so I'd like to cut all that "bloat" out.

 

I am aware I can block all the unsubscribed channels from the guide and I have already done that. It's the on demand preview advertising channels, the 5 French Language channels and others that I don't use that I want to block from showing up on my TV and Guide.

I've edited my channel list on the guide. You can find it in the system settings. These settings are per box.

 

  1. On the remote hit Menu
  2. Scroll to Settings
  3. Then Television
  4. Then Customize your guide

You'll be able to enable and disable individual channels. Just note that the preview ones sometimes come back. Any channels you do not subscribe to that are on free preview will not show up in the guide if you disable them in the settings.

Thanks Nighthawk, that is just what I was looking for.

This is great to find out - Thanks from me as well.  I'd like to "block" all of the 600 channels, as I do not watch any of the Kids channels.

If you use OptikTv, changes can be made on your theme packs to remove the ones you don’t like.

Then possibly you should review and post in the PikTV section!

How did you block all the unsubscribed ones?
