How do you change the UGLY new font on UVERSE set top boxes that appeared 5/14/2015?

I noticed this morning that the font changed on my Uverse set top box.  Now when you enter in the channel you want, it's in a font that is not bold (and as easy to see) as the one previously.  The same "thin" font is used in the guide and on the title prompts at the bottom of the screen.

 

I understand you were trying to match the user interface font to match the font AT&T uses in its  advertisements and bills, but the new font is UGLY (weird #1's) and not as easy to see because it's not bold.  Please change it back to a BOLD font or put the option to change the system font in the software!

We haven't received the newest release here yet so I have no opinion but some on these boards really, really like it.

I have not received the update either but I've heard mostly great things about it and have been looking forward to it. Now I'm apprehensive...

Most think it's an improvement.  I still haven't seen it but the screenshots in the other thread, look much better.

 

Sadly this is not your computer where you can pick and choose the font.  Anyone for Comic Sans?  Can you change the font on say your electronic dashboard on your car?  Or on your alarm clock?  Didn't think so.  It is what it is and can't be changed.

Bottom line:  You CANNOT change it.  Sorry. 

 

Here's hoping you get used to it.

Just got the new Firmware.  The font is very thin, so I can see why some don't like it.
