Sling TV updates Android UI design

Sling-TV-Grid-GuideSling TV has updated its user interface (UI) design for Android devices that incorporates subscriber feedback as well as better methods of content discovery.

Perhaps the most useful new feature for a good percentage of users is a Grid Guide (pictured above) that takes a more traditional approach to program listings. Much like a TV guide you might use for cable or satellite TV service, the grid guide provides channel listings, programs, and times all within an interface that’s scrollable both vertically and horizontally.

The new Sling TV Android interface has added a Featured section to the MyTV tab that currently includes “Featured Movies” and “Featured Shows.” The two ribbons are intended to help subscribers find content from the Sling TV programming lineup. In the same vein, the new UI includes a revised algorithm for displaying “what’s hot” in the On Now section.

And, within the next few weeks Sling is rolling out a Shows section that will display users’ favorite series and allow them to discover more shows by genre.

Sling recently launched expanded cloud DVR service for Apple TV users, which is also available for Android and Roku users.

  1. Every story I have been able to find on this subject indicates the new version is out for all android devices but I still show v5.2.598 as the last release and it was released on 4/27/17. Is there something I am missing?
