Limit the Channel Guide to display only upcoming sports programs

On AT&T TV, I can't find a setting that allows me to see the "channel guide" showing only sports shows. I can display "sports on right now", but I can't see all the sports shows that will be on in the next 3/6/9 hours. So on Saturday morning, if I want to see what football games will be on in the afternoon, I have to do keyword searches (REALLY tedious).

Am I missing something? Is there an option where you can see the channel guide restricted to just sports programs? I can't find it. This was a feature on Charter, on Verizon FIOS and on Comcast cable systems I used.

Those were cable services. Streaming services are quite different and limited.

Your answer makes zero sense.

Of course I'm referring to cable services. AT&T TV provides me those cable channels and I'm asking about the guide for those cable channels.

So, sure...streaming is quite different. So is the BBC shortwave radio. Help someone else.

The AT&T TV features are less sophisticated than some other carriers' systems (and less sophisticated than I think they should be after 4 years).  I wasn't aware that the guide filters worked like that (I've basically never used them).  You will similarly find that the DVR has less flexibility than many other systems, search has fewer capabilities, etc.  It appears from this side that AT&T isn't investing what they should in developing the features of this service, which is disappointing. 

They appear to be pushing AT&T TV as their main video service, at the expense of DirecTV and U-Verse (which they have deprecated) - in fact they are trying to sell the other services.  Perhaps if AT&T TV becomes their only service, they will be forced to invest in it to bring it up to competitive in features with the competing top line services.
