    Great idea! It would also be nice to filter to just sports, just movies, etc.

    To have this but also have the option to search the guide and have ability to filter categories would be great

    Great! I am glad that this got some traction.

    Currently the One Guide is not my primary guide. I use my set top box guide as my go to. Despite the fact that the One Guide has some great integration with app channels, it completely misses the basic functionality of a standard guide.

    Speed. It is slow to load. It may be quicker after the first launch, but still slower than a normal guide. If we could have it constantly loading in the background while using the TV app. We may be able to have an instantaneous OneGuide pop up?

    I think the following would help it out greatly:
    - Ability to sort by genres/types
    - Ability to colorize
    - Load/Update the guide in the background while using the TV app

    Some more ideas. Setting alerts/reminders for you favorite TV shows. Adding a search feature to it would be nice as well.

    Love the Idea... Suggestion from DropTech from Reddit

    Even better being able to sort/filter by genres as well. For example have it list only sports on the guide or movies.
