Can’t Read the Small print on Channel Guides

Please create an option for those have trouble reading the on-screen channel guides.  I cannot read the small type on the screen.  Any way you could make the size of the type adjustable? I don’t want to purchase a larger tv as I don’t have space for a larger screen, I just want to be able to read the info.

Can't see the menu and movie descriptions on my screen, causing eye strain and I have progressive eyeglasses!

Re: Can’t Read the Small print on Channel Guides

I wear progressive lenses, too. Progressive lenses are optimized for near, medium, and distance vision. However, I realized that many of the visual tasks we do in a day are outside the focal ranges of progressives.

For example, the near range is supposed to be for reading a book in your lap. But it's too short for desktop computer work. I measured the distance from my eyes to the computer screen and ordered a pair of glasses with single vision lenses at that focal length. Bingo - no more eye strain!

I suspect the same problem is happening with television viewing. Large screen, wall-mounted TVs may need a different focal length than progressive lenses can provide.

A pair of single vision TV-only glasses may do the trick.
