I find it unbelievable that a service that shows Live OTA TV would not use the time grid framework. Using tiles is great if all shows are pre-recorded, but it does not work when you are trying to debate what to watch on Live TV and plan your evening. Cable Companies, AT&T, satellite providers, Tivo, even MS Media Center use a grid.... Live TV needs the Time Grid. Recorded TV does not. So what is Simple.tv? It is a way to watch Live TV and record shows. Give users the ability to toggle the grid option on or off.
>>The Simple.TV app on Roku does not display a grid of upcoming TV shows by channel and time. Will this basic feature be added by software anytime soon?
We won't be additional a traditional legacy EPG (the grid guide) and in fact may be removing that view from mobile apps as we switch to a show based approached (think lots of pretty tiles, categorized by whatever your heart my desire).
