  • Why won't a rented disc play in my player?

  • Why are we discontinuing the TV Guide Service?
    In the current environment it has become commercially unreasonable to continue providing the Broadcast Data service due to, among other factors, the agreements with our network providers have been or being in the process of being terminated by April 2013 and analyses of consumer electronic reports indicating a low-level of units that utilize the Broadcast Data Service. Additionally, the majority of consumers in North America receive their broadcast signal via cable or satellite and these transmissions are in the process of being encrypted as the Federal Communications Commission has granted cable operators permission to encrypt their most basic cable programming. Cable operators in Canada are also encrypting their signal.

  • What will a consumer experience after the discontinuation of the TV Guide broadcast data service?
    When a Guide stops receiving the broadcast data, it will normally retain the lineup but display "No Listings" for a few weeks. At some point, or after resetting the Guide, a "No data for this Screen" or similar message will display on the screen when the Guide is accessed.
