      Sky Q TV Guide

      Hi,

      The Sky Q TV Guide looks great, but two features we used heavily on Sky+ are not available:

      1. Favourites
      This was an excellent workaround for those terrestrial channels with moronic channel numbering.

      2. Live Sports - Filter by Sport
      On Sky+ it took a minute or two to look through a list all the live football matches to be broadcast over the week. On Sky Q there are three options:
      - Sports > Sport (but Football includes Sky Sports News [why? and there is one for each hour of the day] and it typically takes a minute or so just to get to the first live match)
      - Sports > Live Sports (not possible to further filter by sport; there are many sports, most of no interest to us)
      - use a listings magazine
      Yes, folks, the only option here that is in any way viable is the third one: use a listings magazine printed on good old paper - what a retrograde step!
      Also the Sky Q approach is excellent for looking at an individual item but hopeless for scanning a long list, where you need to see as many items as possible on screen at once.

      I also agree with others that the Sky button would be better used for the TV Guide (quick, immediate access to the Guide) rather than Recordings (lesser need for immediacy).

      I think the guide will be subject to many tweaks in the future to get it right. Personally I am ok with it as I don't use the favourites and my only favourite live sport has its own dedicated channel...

      Yes, we all have different likes, dislikes and usage patterns.

      Don't need a guide for that or favourites - sorted :-)
