I have Uverse as a 2nd provider. I just checked tonight's new episode of "Under The Dome." Nowhere does it say new. It has OAD just like DirecTV.

Brighthouse uses the word New in the lead info summary and Uverse use original air date in the lead summary,unlike D* were we have to click info a few times to see the original air date.

 

Heres uverse guide from somebody on youtube and as he scrolls through some of the shows you can see OAD(NEW for BHN) in lead summary.

I would like to see one or the other implemented by D*, NEW or OAD in the lead so I don't have waste precious battery clicking extra buttons to see the original air date.

At the very least, if the word "New" in the info heading is to hard to comprehend,Directv should at least show the "First Air date" in the info header summary and not at the tail end where you have to hit info a couple of times to see it.


I agree with this. Instead of listing just the year, why can't they list the whole original air date? It would make it easier when you're in the search screen looking for a particular episode of a show.

This is how i would like to see it off the guide with the word new or air date in the lead header summary.

(or use the word New with date instead of First Aired and use Repeat with date of original broadcast if shown before)

Leave off "First Aired"; there's not enough room. But otherwise, nice. 

 

As an aside, ironically, the first aired date with Sheen would be several years ago....


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Right now, many programs (mostly movies) have the year in parens. Pretty simple to just put (8/19/13) in parens.

When the show has a description, you have to wait for the OAD to appear with Uverse. It can take a couple seconds... just like with DirecTV when you have to press info.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
