Colors and fonts


Customize the appearance of your guide through your online account. Simply modify the color scheme of your guide to match that of your properties or companies color scheme. To enhance your look or to assist visually impaired audiences, you can change the font and font size of the program data, the channels and the time bar all independently.




Backgrounds


The main look and feel of your channel guide is generated by the background image. You can create your own background image in any graphic editor then upload as many background images as you wish. They will play in rotation, changing every 2 minutes.

Image size: 640 x 480 pixels (Standard definition 4:3 format), 1280 x 720 pixels (High definition 16:9 format)
Format: jpeg




Banners


Banners are smaller and appear as overlays in the top right area of your channel guide. You can create banners with any graphic editor, which will overlay your banner on the background image. Keep this in mind when designing your background. Upload as many banner images as you wish; they will play in rotation, changing every 1.5 minutes.

Image size: 500 x 65 pixels (maximum)
Format: jpeg




Movies


Video is the most compelling medium for attracting the attention of your viewers. And you have the ability to create or convert and upload full motion videos into your channel guide. Videos will automatically play between your logo and scrolling channel grid.

File size: 40mb or smaller
Length: 180 seconds (maximum)
Format: .mov (H264) Apple® Quicktime Pro®
Resources: Learn how to use Apple® Quicktime Pro®
