For every Viacom channel you see the channel, the -1 alert channel and then a banner for "more info". Its obnoxious, get rid of it.

It is called favorites. I don't see them at all since I don't have the channels in my favorites.

No, it's called a company using common sense and seeing how obtrusive it is.

Yeah cause they know which channel you want information on.

Obtrusive? No more than the dozens of PPV channels or the other channels you don't subscribe to.

How do you filter them out? Favorites!

Take your favorites off, try to navigate through the guide and report back. On second thought, don't bother because the response will be predictable.

I don't use favorites, I have no desire to use favorites, I simply don't want my guide spammed, channel after channel. Just like I don't want my twitter account spammed by retweets from D* regarding their little spat (but that is another story).

Okay then. You don't want to bother to use the dvr as it was designed. I get it.

I have turned favorites off to see them and scrolled through just fine. I didn't even know they were there until I read it on this forum though because I used a feature that makes them go away.

In the same time you took to ***** here, they could have been gone. Effective use of your time.

They will be gone when the channels are back or enough time goes by that it is old news. Believe it or not, there are people who are still finding out about this.

But let's change everything so you don't have to use favorites.

Okay.

By people who want to waste their time going past hundreds of channels they don't want to watch, yes.

You got an answer. You didn't like it. Not spin. I was being helpful.

I watch those channels occasionally, hence no favorites.

And no, you weren't being helpful. Helpful doesn't involve condescending posts. Again, move on to someone else's topic.

Suggesting you call DirecTV and voicing your opinion (which probably won't get them to change anything) or using favorites and removing those channels temporarily, and temporarily unfollowing DirecTV on Twitter are about the only thing we can suggest.

Fine. Whatever. I gave you an answer. It was not condescending. It was informative. You pissed me off in the way you rejected my answer. Too damned bad.
