1.50.1 Apple TV App Guide always starts at your default channel

This app has had negative issues with the remote since early this year. Now when you swipe in from the right to activate the guide it always starts at your designated default channel. This is not a good thing from the user point of view and certainly is new behavior. Please put it back to when activating the guide it starts at the currently watched channel.

The release notes for 1.50.1 state "Sometimes, Siri directed you to your startup channel instead of the channel you requested." this has got to be related to my problem with this app lately.

Just so you know how painful this is it takes some 35+ swipes to scroll from channel 8 to the upper 900 channels. Not cool.

    Thank you for your feedback on this. We will certainly pass that along to our developers.

    I agree with original poster. This is just another case of a horrible user experience with poorly thought out features. Please fix it.
