Depending on your device, you may now have access to two different options when searching for shows in your Guide: Grid Guide or Channels Guide. The first option you will see is the Grid Guide, and the second is the Channels Guide. 

The first row for Grid Guide includes options for the guide view and a date option to see what is coming up to a week in advance. Select the date to access this feature.

To navigate the grid, move up, down, left, or right to see what's currently streaming or coming up on each channel, up to seven days in advance. To see a description of a program, highlight it in the guide, then select it. 

To launch guide filters, select the Guide icon on the top of the screen, or select where you see All Channels displayed.

To exit either guide view, simply select the channel or program you'd like to watch.

Additionally, many devices offer a Mini Guide feature, so you can see what else is on or coming up while still enjoying your show. To access the mini guide, while viewing a program, select, click, or swipe up on your device. Here, you can scroll through your filters, channels, or schedule ribbon to see everything else that's on!
