An automatic update for most users took place over the weekend. The current version of the app on Android TV is 2.1.1.
After launching the Player, subject categories, such as TV Shows, Episodes, Movies, Kids, are not displayed immediately. Below the images and descriptions of the day’s most important productions, other recommended items from various content providers are displayed. For example, HBO (Popular content from HBO Max is now promoted and shown in several places), Eurosport, MTV, TVN, Player on Demand or Player Original.
Below are the categories “New”, “Continue Watching”, “Hotel Paradise All Stars Extra”, “Popular in HBO Bundle”, “New Movies in Your Bundle”, “Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary.” or “Discover Player”.

A new look for the TV program menu
The tab with live TV channels and TV program has been modified. If you want to watch what a certain channel is showing now, you can run the “live programs” option. We will then be shown large “tiles” with individual channel symbols, descriptions and images.
If you select “TV program”, we see a small logo and description, we can also browse individual day schedules to play previously announced programs. Catch up TV still covers the week. In the fall of 2022, after one software update, there were problems with its operation, but the Player quickly implemented the update.
