On Demand tab on the flip bar?

I was flipping channels and then I found a tab for On Demand (for that channel) on the flip bar as i'm changing channels. When I go to the On Demand tab on the flip bar, it directs to that channel on VOD. Has anybody seen this before?

Had it for quite a while here in the northern 'burbs of Atlanta also.  Never used it except when I first saw it to see what it did.

It's a placeholder right now.  This function will do more once the new version of the on-screen guide is available later this year.

It takes you to specific VOD content based on that channel.

Re: On Demand tab on the flip bar?

I guess this may be moot since there are 2 different threads on it.  Honestly what you are seeing are a few VOD shortcuts right now. They are simply there to test some telescoping abilities which will be used in the new on-screen guide.  I believe the upper 880's have a few, 999 in some systems is help videos; here in Denver 850 shortcuts to the adult VOD.

If you were using a SA settop rather than a Moto, chances are this would be old hat to you because of the organizational difference between the platforms.

I still stand by saying that the current telescoping tests are placeholders for some real functionality that is targeted for later this year.
