There must be an easier way to jump to a channel

could somebody please tell me if there's another option to select a particular channel, other than scrolling down through the entire list!?  

 

Otherwise, I'm gonna get grief from the wife and daughter till the end of days!  πŸ™„

Unfortunately @RequiringRefund There's no way of chossing a channel manaully 😞 Scrolling is the only option at the moment.

Pressing the ">>" button on the remote at the channel list or tv guide jumps a whole page.

surely with the increased popularity, they can do something about that?!
even the option to pin favourite channels to the front page maybe?

Cheers for the tip about page scrolling though. πŸ‘

Id say it would easily enough done too. Maybe the remote is what is holding it back. However, an app with numbered button functionality would solve all problems. Hmmm. I'll report it back anyway @RequiringRefund

Yes, it's a real shame there's no option to purchase a more comprehensive hand-held remote control.

 

It's even more of a shame that you can't download a specially created 'app' to control our smart boxes πŸ˜‰

Re: There must be an easier way to jump to a channel

It'd be an idea to allow us to delete or hide unwanted channels, or make a favourites list so that we don't have to scroll through so much rubbish.

 

Freeview on the Smart box really does seem a very half hearted affair, and it's not something I enjoy using or reccommend to others.

+1 to OP and this idea.

 

I switched from Sky to Now TV a few months ago and changing channels is the one bug bear that I find very frustrating. 

 

Using a sideclick addresses the lack of volume, input source & standby buttons, but having to hold the "down" button to scroll all the way to the HD channels every time takes way too long.

Re: There must be an easier way to jump to a channel

This is one of the things holding me back from purchasing one as we would use it on the tv in the bedroom which isn't a smart tv. But we use it for freeview every night, so scrolling through the channels is going to be long! All Now TV or Sky need to do is bring out a remote with numbers on it like every other remote control, i would even buy it as an add on if it didn't come as standard

Re: There must be an easier way to jump to a channel

If NowTV have any sense and do decide in the future to manufacture a smart box version 2, then lets hope they take on board all the feedback from smart box customers with the limitations and negativity of the current box (even if NowTV have to outsource a numeric remote controller with more functionality instead of using the generic Roku remote).
