This is a long time coming. We first did a pass at On Later years ago. We weren't happy with it but eventually just put it out on the web admin. It sat for a while, then we tried to improve it again. We weren't happy with it. Well this year we took another stab at it and we think it's ready for prime time.
Previously, your favorite channels helped inform On Later to show you content that would suit you. This wasn't great as most people's favorites are set on their client. This also isn't a great way to surface things you like. Now, you can tell On Later exactly what you like.
With the new On Later tuning settings, you can mark your:
- Preferred channels
- Preferred Sport Leagues
- Preferred sports
- Preferred Movie Genres
- Preferred TV Show Genres
On Later uses this info to surface things you might like.
Additionally, On Later lets you browse by TV Shows, Movies, Sports, and Kids.
Browse all of the Comedies available to record or see, at a glance, all the MLB Baseball games that are set to air in the future.
On Later is finally in the app! As usual, it's in the tvOS/iOS version first, but it will come to Android soon.
All the same browsing you see in the web admin is here in the app now. Tuning settings will eventually make it to the app so you can tune it right there without using the web admin.
- no android - this will come
- no tuning settings in the app - this will come
- performance - browsing can take a little while to load, we'll be working on speeding it up
- better surfacing of things - we'll continue to work on making results better
Play with this and use this thread to let us know how it does helping you find things to record!
