Hi - came to the forums to ask if there was a way to change the various chosen channels on the new homepage (brand new BT TV customer - one day old lol) having scoured the web (I'm a tinkerer!) and saw your post here saying that you are being told that this may be happening in the near future. For me I just want to replace the initial TV channels to HD (I've hidden everything in the guide except for HD). Couldn't care less about apps as I'll use one of the higher quality boxes I have for those in any case. Sounds like this is coming - or have I misread?
Hi @Rokk welcome to the community forum. Currently you cannot change the channels that are featured on the home page. I think as it stands you get BBC choice of channel , ITV choice of channel, C4 choice of channel , C5 choice of channel , BT choice of channel , and then the next five channels are based upon their prominence in the EPG guide. BBC , ITV , C4 and C5 appear to always select their SD main PSB channels content , BT will elect to display different channel content in its single slot and the HD variant of the channel where appropriate. The concept of allowing customers to select their own favourite channels has not been adopted by Youview and BT.
I noticed yesterday evening that the home page BBC 1 information on the Guide carousel differed from the full Guide data. BBC were clearly changing schedules for their Wimbledon coverage but it seemed that the full Guide-and the Home page Guide carousel data was different whereas I would have expected them to be pulling the data from the same source. Is the home page perhaps getting its updates less frequently than the Guide and can this be improved ?
