I love this channel. Nothing like it on the Roku Channels. I initially downloaded the TV Guide Channel thinking it was...well...a TV Guide (stupid me). But, instead it was just a bunch of very uninteresting videos.
Anyway, I would like to make a request. It would be great if it was possible to have the ability to see what is on BOTH cable tv channels and OTA channels. In other words, the ability to set up another screen for cable/OTA. It would also be nice to be able to put in multiple zip codes for movie locations.
But, like I said, this is the only channel like it on Roku. So, great job.
BTW, if you are going to keep this free, you should at least post a link where users can give a donation.
Thanks again for your channel.
Thanks for your comments, carsokk. You're the first (and only) person to suggest those particular features. The way the code is designed, it would take quite a bit of work to implement them, and I'm really not planning on adding much more functionality to What's On. I'm surprised you're asking for multiple zip codes for movie locations; for my zip code, I get around 40 movie theatres listed, not just from my zip code, but from several surrounding zip codes as well. I'm not sure I can come up with a workaround for you either if you want to see both OTA and cable TV channels without re-selecting the TV provider (although it's only about 6 remote key presses to get from the TV listings screen to the list of TV providers under the Settings menu, then a few more to select the new provider and get back to the TV listings screen). In any case, I never really envisioned that anyone would even be using What's On for cable and satellite TV listings, since I assumed that most cable/satellite services come with their own channel guides. Most people, including myself, only use it for OTA listings. I'm glad the cable/satellite stuff works though for people who want it. I did switch servers a couple of months ago, so that the data is now coming through Google's servers, which are quite a bit faster than one of the other servers I was using. Hopefully that helps to download the longer cable/satellite listings a little faster.
