Uverse TV listings - new TV listings favorites?

 

Last week the Uverse TV listings page changed from the Uverse/Yahoo TV listings page to the Uverse.com TV listings page when signing in for the Web Remote Access:

 

http://uverse.com/uv/guide

 

Now there is no way to set up a favorites list on the TV listings page.

 

The only thing I can find on this new page is My Favorites in the drop-down off my Sign In which says to click on the *star* icon to add items to your favorites list (as on the Uverse/Yahoo page) but there are no *star* icons anywhere in the listings.

 

I did a search and browsed the Community forum and can not find anything about how to set up Favorites on the uverse.com TV listings page.

 

This is a pretty major feature for any TV listings web page, and is available on the set-top-box.

 

Did they really roll this new listings page out without this feature or am I totally missing it?

 

Tnx!

Jeffer - No, it does not apply to on-line shows. It applies to on-demand shows. 

on the main page - uverse.com appear on-demand shows as if they were tape or DVD boxes. Mouse over those & you will get a pop-up with star on top-right. Once you mark one or more, click on your name in the upper right & the pull-down menu will  include My Favorites that you click to get your list of on-demand favorites.

I'm not sure how we got from favorite channels to favorite OnDemand programs.

We got there because the software went there. The software went there because the people designing it have no clue about hat it is.

Yeah, I want to set up a list of channel favorites like you can on the DVR and on the Uverse/Yahoo listing.

 

I was on the Uverse/Yahoo listing until just last week. Then I started getting redirected to uverse.com

I want to join the list of those upset by the loss of the ability to select favorite channels in the new browser-based UI. I don't like scrolling through pages of channels I never watch to look at the ones I do watch. Bad oversight not to keep that feature, U-verse!

Also, I don't care much for the larger rows in the new format. You see fewer channels at a time on the screen. But I'll settle for the larger rows if ytou bring back the favorite channels feature!

@ogdoad - You can control the number of rows with the sizer on your computer -

On the Mac command zero is normal size, command minus is smaller text and plus is larger.

I believe you can do the same on a PC. Perhapse it is control instead of command.

With the guide displayed click the command minus a couple of times til you cannot read it because it is too small.

@ogdoad - YW - Wish I could fix the favorites as easily. Nobody paid attention when I let them know in October 2013.

 

Another viewing aid is the zoom - on the mac it is when the contol button is held down, the scroll wheel zooms larger ( & smaller only back to normal). While the view is larger, the mouse movement moves the viewing area.

Not only all that's been posted above but the descriptions of programs tells you nothing at all compared to what we had before.

 

Did anyone call AT&T U-verse about this?

Yes, the functional Web Remote Access web page has been replaced by garbage. Is anyone at AT&T reading all these posts?? I haven't seen any threads praising the change. YOU MADE A MISTAKE. Its simple to fix. Just put back the old page!!!
