Not really an option when we are bound by a contract.
Sure it is...if it bothers you as much as you say, pay the fee and move on.....OR page down and move on in the guide. It really is about half a second of your time.
That's always been the behavior, ads or not. The bottom entry of the guide always becomes the top entry when using page down. Same goes for the playlist.
But dude, they don't want solutions, they just want to complain...
Yep untill we get the "on off " switch
Thats a solution!
Still waiting for those Comcast/ Fios screen shots????
Maybe Directv can put one in their Guide for us!
I love how the very few of you think your right, when the vote clearly shows people don't want it. And these are your fellow members
581 so far you've ignored . But don't worry Directv thanks you!
I could be wrong or it is simply my imagination but I only see 2 of those Banner Ads in my lineup now.
I do not have any that say press here for more info.
Both of the ones I have are for the same movie, just in different locations in the guide.
Hopefully they are listening and taking action to stop them or at least limit them now.
Note that I only have 54 channels in this Favorites list which includes the HBO, Showtime, Starz & Encore channels.
Currently there are 7 banner ads between channels 500-568 and 4 banner ads between channels 200-299. Personally I don't see what all the fuss is about. What I do find annoying is channels like USA running text messages across the bottom of the screen during prime time with people saying what they are enjoying about the program they are watching.
There are 5 above 501 on my HR24
+1 to that also. I switch channels when they do that.
Wonder why there's a difference? There are 6 attached to 501 taking up a full page on my HR24-200.
DirecTV's response? "To better inform you! Try clicking on one sometime!"
I still just have 1 above 501. I do now have a new one just below 501. I do not get Cinemax so maybe that is why I do not see any more than I do at this moment.
A new Record one just popped up in the lower channels now also.
No, it's really not but whatever floats your boat...
FYI, I voted that I did like them yet you seem to assume otherwise. Regardless of how we vote however this is one thing DirecTV isn't going to move on. This creates income for them and they're not going to remove something that would cost them income. As you've been told over and over they've proven these ads to be effective and they're sticking with them.
The number of ads seems to vary from day to day. Keep in mind that some aren't just ads, they are links to things that are already downloaded to your DVR that you can watch immediately.
A quick Google search found plenty.
A forum complaining about Fios guide ads... http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26379135-Ads-shown-after-pressing-qGuideq-or-qDVRq-on
Thats it? The bottom of the Guide?
Wow if Directv did this I would be happy!
I'm sure so would the other 584.
In the Guide DATA is the issue!
Thanks for posting it though, atleast someone did!
Unless you page down, it constantly highlights the ad. The Fios forum link says...
I've read about the Fios, But still couldn't find a picture.
The people who voted here are well aware what they like or don't like with the ads.
So I can leave it like that! Fact is More people by a mile don't like it, and this coming out of the Mouths of Directv Members of this forum.
IMO thats accounts for something.
I bet more people don't like paying a boatload for satellite tv, but it's not going to change DirecTV's mind on pricing...just like nothing will change their mind on this.
If you had a product, then wouldn't you advertise it? If a company paid you to advertise a product your customers might like and doesn't compete with your product, then wouldn't you do it?
People can hate ads all they want, but they work and it's an over 100 billion dollar a year industry for a reason.
