Learn more about the On Now feature of the HD Guide. The On Now feature allows you to view lists containing programs that fall within a certain category, such as Movies, Sports, or News.
An On Now list acts as a filter, removing all programming that is not included in the selected category so that you only browse through the type of programming that you want to see. This filter can be easily deactivated if you would like to return to the default view of all of the available channels in your package.
Categories / Filters
Categories are provided as the starting point for filters. Categories include: Trending, Movies, Sports, Kids, Reality, Comedy, Drama, and News. If selected, Trending will display popular programs currently being viewed by others. For the other categories, the channels and programs in your channel lineup are automatically predefined and marked, so when you apply a filter the guide will automatically populate a list of matching content results.
