The Synopsis in Guide arrived with the latest firmware update from YouView. Just tap the right arrow next to the OK button on the TV Box remote and that'll move on to the next programme in the Guide. Youview haven't provided an option to switch off the synopsis. I didn't like it at first viewing but it does usefully provide the time of the programme and using the right arrow on the remote moves on to the next and then the next programme etc so it works well.
Synopsis in Guide
Browsing the Guide just became even easier. Now when you focus on a programme we will expand the area to show you more useful information, like the programme synopsis and the length of the programme. We'll also call out if the programme has JUST STARTED, is NOW ON or is ENDING SOON to help when you're browsing in the Guide.
