Nice addition!
This was what their most requested feature to add. It just makes it so much easy to see what will be coming up on all of the channels in the next couple of hours instead of having to navigate each channel one at a time

I think a grid style guide would be nice. The one thing I didn't like about Sling tv before was no guide.

?

Are you using a Roku? I ask because all their other platform apps have a guide.
Using both the Fire TV box and sticks. Granted that VUE has a guide, but it is in vertical rather than horizontal or linear form. Hard to get used to after being used to the linear style guide forever.

yep, thats the precise reason I actually like the current sling interface. Glad to see I'll have an option to choose which layout I want.

A linear guide is a must-have for Sling if they ever want to fully compete with satellite and cable.

The vast majority of channel-flippers are just simply used to that kind of guide, IMO. You want to be able to see what is on many channels at a glance.

I wish they had an ETA on when the new linear guide will be available on other platforms besides Android.

Is this available on Fire TV? I'm still seeing older non-grid UI.

Apparently, Sling and other companies who offer these streaming live TV packages have determined that big percentage of the population are shifting to watching TV programs on their smart phones and tablets instead of home TV sets. I find that very mind boggling!

I don't think they are wrong about that, especially for teens and kids, but they've forgotten everybody else. I guess that isn't too uncommon.
