Isn't that what browse mode is for?  Press "o" while watching LiveTV to 
enter browse mode.  Then, to see what's on next, use the right arrow.  
And, with browse mode, you can get Next-next and Next-next-next and ...  ;)

If you really like browse mode, you can set your channel up/down buttons 
to always use browse mode.
