How do I see all the info about a TV programme?

I press the info button on the remote and the info is shown in a banner at the bottom of the screen, but any info more than 3 lines doesn't display and so often cuts off mid sentence or mid paragraph. This seems crazy to me, so is there a way of seeing all the info when it is more than 3 lines long?

Electronic Programme Guide. It's where your channels are listed.

Just click guide on your remote control and either scroll to the channel you want or input the channel number you want. Scroll to the programme you want and press info on your remote. That should give you more informstion on the programme.

Ok yes it does give the full info, thank you.

However, if anyone from VM is seeing this, surely it would make sense to show the full info on the banner when on a specific programme page.

I’ve tried pressing the guide button but you get less info than just pressing the info button I’m not impressed as I would love to actually see all the info for any programs I might like to watch

Re: How do I see all the info about a TV programme?

Hi,

I'm finding this issue absolutely baffling and its annoying me more than it should. The program description on the EPG has couple extra lines but this also cuts off mid sentence if its too long 

Can you share how you managed to fix it? 

Thanks

Yes Terryth, it annoys me as well. No point in having "info" if only half the info is there.

Mind you it also annoys me when people spell "programme" as "program" even when they are talking about a TV programme as opposed to a computer program. Maybe I need to get out more!

@Terryth 

Click "guide" for the full-screen EPG, find the programme you want and press "info" on your remote.

A truncated version of the programme description shows by doing the same process from the mini-guide, which you get by pressing "OK" from live TV.
