The guide data doesn't come from a phone line, it comes from the SAT feed. It's always been that way. So, you don't need a phone line (or ethernet) to get guide data.

The box will report PPV purchases over the internet, so the only reason to have both ethernet (with internet) and a phone line is to get Caller ID on your TV.
If you have Century Link as your phone provider and do the combined billing thing, Century Link will send your CID info over the internet and the DTV /CL app will allow it to appear on screen:)
