Sling TV looks to be making a move to become more user friendly starting on Apple TV. The cable replacement service has tweaked its interface a number of times including providing a grid based system for finding programming after initially launching without one. The service has not updated the app on other platforms yet, likely so that it can check out how it works on a smaller partner before pushing the update to everyone else.
New features include:
- Updated Guide – The grid guide will now show a photo preview and information about a show before you click to watch, and filters have moved to the left hand side of the screen.
- Ribbon Management – Now instead of scrolling through content to get to the “Manage” buttons for Favorite Channels, Recordings and Continue Watching, you can select the icon at the beginning of these rows for easy access.
- Remote Capabilities – Tapping the remote touch pad on Apple TV will now allow you to view more information and will bring up player controls for the show.
