The new TV Guide Magazine is a huge improvement over the old. The large format is easy to follow and the print almost large enough for my 90 year old father to read. Having both Central and Eastern time zones on the same listing are a bit confusing at first, but you get used to it after a while. I'm not interested in the many articles about the feature TV shows and movies, but they appear to be well written.
nice to have
I had no tv guide during the summer because nothing was on that I wanted to watch but I did want to hear about the new shows coming on so I started taking it again. Glad I did. It is full of infor about all the new shows.
This publication only gives the TV schedule for prime time only, four hours. Certainly does not include many channels.
TV Guide Subscription
I am very unhappy with this product. I ordered the subscription on June 13th as a gift for Father's day. It's now July 19th and he has not gotten a single issue. I checked and it does say that subscriptions start 4-6 weeks after you buy the product and that is the truth! I can see my order says the subscription will start on August 3rd. If I knew that it would take this long I would have bought it at the newstand and done it with TV guide direct.
