Today we're introducing an experimental News section and Sports section in Channels.
NOTE: These are off by default, you can turn them on under Settings > Library
Once you turn them on, you'll now have dedicated sections for News and Sports. They are each their own section. This allows you to browse your News or Sports all on their own.
These sections give you a contextual section just for this type of content. We know a lot of you are sports and news junkies, and this sort of content can sometimes feel awkward mixed into your normal library.
So, now you can optionally turn on these dedicated sections and find your News and Sports all in one place.
Both sections have 4 main rows of content when you visit them.
- On Now - Events or News programs that are currently airing.
- Recently Aired - Recent recordings of news or sports
- On Later - Upcoming events or news programs later on today
- Your Sports / News - The list of shows/leagues in your library.
When you turn on the News or Sports sections, it not only makes them available in the sidebar navigation, it also excludes all of this content from showing in the rest of your library and Up Next. This cleans up browsing the rest of library by making News and Sports available in dedicated sections.
The On Later row is influenced by the fine tuning settings that you made for On Later.
Please check these out and let us know if anything isn't working, or what might make them better for you.
