The guide button on a Dish Network remote control allows users to see a list of television programs available. The guide typically allows users to see up to 7 days worth of programming and is updated daily unless the customer changes the update schedule.
Depending on the model of remote control, Dish remotes often feature a right arrow button that shows users what is currently playing within an hour-and-a-half window. Many remotes feature a button that allows users to see what is playing in exactly 24 hours on the specific channel they are looking at. Dish guides can also be sorted to show users only channels that they receive, channels that are on their favorites list or every channel available.
