We’re really happy to announce a preview of a new feature we’ve been working on: On Later!
The Channels app began its life with the On Now tab, which provided an easy new way to browse all the great content on Live TV at any given moment.
With Channels DVR, we want to make it just as easy to discover all the great shows and movies available to you for recording. That’s where On Later comes in. The On Later feature is currently only available on the web UI while in preview mode, but our goal is to bring it to all the client apps once we’ve got the backend working well.
We’ve been testing this feature with our own CONNECTs and PRIMEs, but would like more feedback from different users in various regions and with different numbers and types of channels coming in. We’re also very interested to find out how it works for our international users. Once you upgrade, take a screenshot of how your On Later looks and post it here with your location/provider. Give us all your feedback on what you like and don’t like about the new views, and especially if you notice shows you would expect to be there or shows you would prefer were hidden in the results.
NOTE: Results are influenced based on favorited channels and previously recorded shows.
To try it out, update to the latest DVR pre-release by holding down SHIFT on your keyboard and clicking Check for Updates on the DVR web UI.
Here’s how On Later looks on my OTA DVR:
