Android TV is to be given a new look when Android O, the next version of the operating system, is introduced. The new user interface has been designed to make content easier to find.
A layout that is more typical of traditional electronic programming guides will be adopted, with the intention of ensuring that content is better organised.
Content will be listed by channel, with apps able to generate multiple channels to organiser their output. When a channel is selected, a list of programmes will be displayed.
In addition to control given to app developers, users will also receive customisation options. With the revised interface, it will be possible to choose which channels are displayed on the home screen.
