Besides color coding the 5 line grid with larger font will not be a huge jump for shaw customers. Shaw has been using a 5 line grid with larger font for some time now. For eastlink customers it is was a big difference as they have had the 6 line grid with small font till now. This makes a huge difference in legibility in my opinion. Color coding is a definitive bonus as well.
Not sure if pausing live tv in one room and watching in another was there before the update as well. Just noticed that now though.
