Agreed 1000% - it's horrible. It seems like ever time we turn on the TV and get to the guide, a pop-up comes up telling us how great the new guide is. Here's what I hate about the guide so far:
Any screenwriters out there?
A bunch of executives from NOZIREV are placed in a real-life reboot of the Saw franchise. Complete 15 tasks with the new guide or else. Ready, set, start the clock. Heck make it a Reality Series!
Or do a campaign style parody: I'm President of NOZIREV and I'm here to show you our latest improvements to your viewing experience.
Excellent summary Steve!
Maybe we could get a dozen top contributors to ZOOM w the VZ Team and discuss this disaster in a thoughtful manner... Yeah, right when Heck freezes over! By now is anybody fooled into believing that VZ is a normal, customer conscience company that responds constructively to a New Tylenol-level debacle?
The NEW Guide is absolutely terrible. It's harder to see the shows and everything is BLACK!!!! There used to be different colors to show movies, sports, etc. When I click on a show to see who is in it, I can't get back to the GUIDE. I have to go out and back in and then find my spot again!
I do hope they go back to the way it was before! It was so nice and EASY!!!!!
The new GUIDE is terrible. It is all black which is actually confusing. There used to be color coding for movies, sports, etc. That really helped.
When you click on a future movie to see who is in it, you can't get back to the GUIDE.
Please help your customers and do something about this awful new GUIDE.
This upgrade is far less than that. Nothing is working properly and I was just trying to scroll through to get to the end since I didn't see it. It would not scroll through to the end and it doesn't finish to the end.
It takes too long to have a number from a channel to come up and the guide goes to that channel. (Change from 506 to 740 - you click on the 7 then 4 and finally 0 and it will not place the last # and go to 74)
There also was a change for a 10 minute interval to the end of the show and that doesn't work anymore.
This entire guide needs to be put back to what it was before as soon as possible. You should ask customers about it first.
Respectfully, writing as a Fios customer for 20 years, there is no need "for further analysis and consideration" or "to implement some improvements shortly". JUST ROLL IT BACK TO THE PRIOR ON-SCREEN GUIDE AND MENU OPTIONS THAT NO ONE HAD ANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT AND EVERYONE ENJOYED USING! PLEASE!
Please disregard that this topic has been marked as solved. This post was marked as the solution in order to float it to the beginning of this thread for increased visibility.

I am not sure why this thread says that it is solved, far from it. The new upgrade has caused a number of issues
It really does not make good business sense to take away features, ones that I am sure Verizon knows people use and if you can't maybe you should have taken a survey of your customers before you got rid of features. Please bring these features back
