New and Improved Quick View from Cablevision? Not so Much.

July 2, 2011

A year and a half ago, Cablevision launched a new feature, iO TV Quick View, which provides viewers a live snapshot of what’s currently airing in three different categories – sports, news, and children’s programming.  Each had its own channel number, making it easy to launch the features.

It’s a great feature, especially for kids, who can easily see what’s on, move the cursor to their progam of choice, and push SELECT to go to the channel (audio changes as the cursor is moved from block to block in the 3x3 grid set up to make optimal use of the screen’s real estate).
