It gives customers simplified navigation, more program information, a new VOD portal and better search capability.
These new features are available on over 2 million set-top boxes now and will be available on over 6 million boxes by the end of 2014.
“We’ve received great feedback on our new cloud-based guide features and are excited to deliver an even better television experience for our customers,” said Rob Marcus, president and chief operating officer.
