Clock on Channels DVR GUI?

Trying to get rest of house off Tivo and on to Channels and minor complaint received which I think is valid is that there is no clock showing on Channels Guide screen? Yes you can tell about what time it is from grid view but most DVR's show the time. Is this something you would consider? If some people find having a clock too intrusive you could always make it an toggle option in settings.

Yes, this is often requested. (No, there is no clock; yes it would be quite nice to have.)

(And perhaps something showing the progress as well in the guide, such as a vertical line marking the current time. I believe the images seem to indicate this is present on the AppleTV version, but it is missing on the Android version.)

I use an Apple TV 4K and when I click it to bring up the status bar it shows the current time below the bar. Maybe that would be helpful. Does TIVO actually overlay the video stream you are watching with the current time?

Yes, IIRC most DVR main guide page show a clock. For example, here is Tivo

Tivo has an elapsed time indicator during playback as well as current time overlayed on the video stream with a transparent background in the upper right hand corner of the display. The Tivo clock is enabled/disabled through a Select-Play-Select code on the remote control. I find that I miss the clock when using Channels now instead of Tivo.

A clock would be great. I'm not sure why but I'm alway wondering what time it is when watching TV. A clock showing whenever there is Channels UI showing (rather than just on the full guide) would be perfect.
