In March, we'll be making enhancements to your Ultimate TV service. These will occur one night between 2:00 am and 6:00 am.
Your TV service, including your PVR recordings, will be interrupted for up to 20 minutes.
When you turn your set-top box on or if you're watching TV during the enhancement, a blue box will prompt you to start the enhancement or delay for 3 hours.
If your TV is off and your set-top box is on during the enhancement, no action is required.
See this link for graphics comparing the old and new features:
Customizable TV guide
The TV guide is changing from a two-guide format to a three-guide format with enhanced visuals and "On Now" guide, so you can choose how to search for programs. Press the Guide button on your MTS remote to rotate between guide styles.
Search for TV programs and On Demand programs in one place with the help of enhanced visuals and program descriptions. You can also narrow down your search results by highlighting Options, and searching by program titles, On Demand, cast and crew, and channels.
