Channel Numbers Change - Starting today, Monday, May 28, 2012, all channel numbers will be changing. These changes will take up to 2 days to implement. We are making these changes to prepare for adding new channels. This will prevent any channel number changes in the future and make a much more logical channel number listing similar to satellite TV. We will be informing customers via the "NEWS" update on the TV Guide.

May 14, 2012.
Within the next 14 days, IGOCOLO will be adding another 20 live channels (and corresponding time-shifted channels) to the lineup. This is another 40 channels!! These channels will be almost all recommendations from dealers and customers over the past year. This is just in time for an amazing Ramadan experience. This comes with NO ADDITIONAL COST. The channels will just appear on the guide when they are ready.
Within the next 30 days, we will be re-organizing the channel numbers so they are always the same. Just like other programmers like Shaw Direct, Bell ExpressVu, Dishnetwork or DirecTV, the channels will be divided in "groups". For example, SPORTS channels may be located in the 700-750 channel number range. NEWS may be in the 100-150 channel range. This way, customers will always know where to go to locate the category they wish to view.
Within the next 45 days, all new receivers will have a 100% new interface. This interface will include the following:
1) Favourites - customers can select any amount of channels as favourites. They can then use the remote to remove all channels EXCEPT for the favourites, for an enhanced viewing experience. They can always watch ALL channels at any time as well.
2) Changing channels on FULL SCREEN TV - while watching full screen, the customer can pull up a "sub guide" to browse channels and change channels without having to return to the guide.
3) Channel listings - All channels that have TV guide listings (about 60% of channels) will have complete channel guide information for customers.
4) NO MORE GETTING LOGGED OUT - the new login system will write directly to the machine (not an Internet explorer cookie) so customers will NEVER get logged out again.
5) REMOTE CONTROL - the remote control is custom programmed for this interface (no more keyboard functions, delayed commands). The same remote is faster, and will not hang or delay.
This new interface will ONLY be available on new USB Keys for Mini PCs or new Images for larger receivers. More information will be available when the system is ready.

for a 25% improvement in picture quality. This picture quality will be as good, if not better, than any other Arabic IPTV competitor. Before Ramadan another
