With the new Interactive Media Guide on Nov 12, 2014, now when I go to a channel that is showing a movie that is also an On Demand movie, a pop-up appears for a couple of seconds that tells me to press the > button on the remote if I want to watch the movie from the beginning from OnDemand. I can't find a way to turn these notifications off. I don't need them, because if I want to find out if the movie I am watching is also an On Demand movie, I can quickly find out with the Info button on the remote. I find these pop-ups to be annoying and useless to me. Has anyone found a way to prevent them?
I don't have a solution, but I feel your pain. About half the time now when I press the on-demand button an ad for some kind of Verizon Fios service pops up. Would love to know how to avoid this, although I suspect it's impossible.
If you go in to settings, there are multiple things that have to be turned off.
Check for notifications, pop-ups, etc.
One of them should do it.
