Android TV to get a major overhaul at just the right time

Whereas Android TV used to stuff all recommendations into one row on the home screen, Android O gives each app its own row, or “Channel.” Scrolling downward, you might see one Channel for trending YouTube videos, another for HBO recommendations, and another for NBA game recaps. Each app can even have multiple Channels, allowing for separate movie and TV lists from Google Play, or separate live and on-demand listings from Sling TV. There’s also a “Watch Next” row that pulls in new episodes from across different apps. – Jared Newman, TechHive
