Not exactly sure what you mean by ‘still eight stations’. It’s actually 7 channels over two hours of time, as opposed to the old UI which was 5 channels over 90 minutes of time.
Ok, it was 7, not 8, but the time span is still 90" (or 120") depending on where you start (half hour or hour).
The text is too large is the biggest problem AFAIC. One more row could be added if the icons at the bottom were not there. Yes, it is better than DaveTV. But, thanks for the details of the other two services.
Verizon has a "repulsive looking Guide"??
