Lame! I was wondering about this on Saturday. We have two digital boxes, but one TV (the one in the office) has basic cable and I wanted to see when the Spurs game started. Now, my lazy butt has to get up and check on the other TV. Or, check on the computer. lol.

But, for those that don't get the paper AND have just switched over to cable because of the DTV switch and don't have the internet, that's a bit unfair.

I never had the patience to use that channel, so I won't miss it. My new TV has a built-in guide feature.

My Dad's friend is in his late 50s and on SSI disability. He was telling me about this; he couldn't access TV guide anymore.

What did they put in its place?

Nothing yet, the channel is blank. I expect it will be reallocated to digital programming.

Thanks for posting! I was wondering the same thing. I relied on tv guild to know whats playing. I hate flipping through channels cause usually its on commercial, or there is a movie or show i dont know the name of. I hate not knowing whats on every channel! Now that tv guild is gone, i barely watch tv.

You can go to the tv guide website now. It stinks if you don't have your computer next to the tv.

Time Warner only takes away they don't giveth back!!! Didn't they just take back useless HBO and maybe something else?? Didn't they do away with News Bin?? Don't their services keep getting reduced and prices keep increasing?? Isn't it near impossible to get help/answers to any service questions. Why not look for alternative internet suppliers and tv sources. $100 a month plus for internet and crap TV??? Let's give Time Warner reason to think over their monopolistic attitude!!

It should be really interesting to see the feathers fly in a couple of years when T-W takes away the last of the channels that show up on analog TVs without a box.
