Search for programs by name of channel. Why not.

Post by Jimmersd » Sat Jul 20, 2019 4:20 pm

It seems to me that I should be able to go to the discover tab and key in the call sign of a channel or the generally accepted contraction of the channel name and get a list of all of the programs available for that channel now and in the future.

eg: If I want to see all of the upcoming programs on TCM or Turner Classic Movies, I should be able to key in one or the other and get a list of upcoming movies. As long as it doesn't conform to the time and grid pattern I would think it would be okay. Why not?

It already works that way :)

Go into the Discover tab, search for a channel number, and it will show all upcoming shows for that channel.

Cool, I'll try that. But I don't remember the channel numbers, I do remember the ID's MSNBC, TBS, FOX etc.. Would be nice if it searched that way too.

Yes, that part doesn't seem to work, but it might be something that can be added. I will ask.
