Roku users will notice some new updates Sling TV launched on Roku devices to make it easier for Slingers to get to their favorite content faster than ever.
In-app Upgrades – Customers can now add Extras and premium channels to their account within the app by selecting their desired content from the in-app upgrades ribbon under “Add Channels & More” on the My TV screen.
Add VOD to MyChannels – Customers can now add on-demand channels to MyChannels, including Nat Geo Wild, Fandor, as well as on-demand content from NBC and FOX for Sling Blue customers who do not live in a market where linear content is available.
Get to Your Favorites Faster – Favorite channels (indicated by a heart in the guide) are now front-and-center and are shown first at the top of the “Grid Guide” and on the left of the “Channel Guide,” and the new “Micro Guide.”
New “Micro Guide” – We’ve reduced the size of the guide that appears while watching a show, so it takes up less of the screen. The full guide is still available by pressing “down” on the remote’s D-pad when watching a title.
Updated Arrow Controls – We’ve changed the full-screen video navigation, so now pushing “up” on the D-pad will bring up the micro guide, Pushing “down” on the D-pad will now bring up the old guide.
Safe Exit – When pressing the “Exit” button on the remote, customers will now see a pop-up giving them the option to go back to their show or movie instead of leaving Sling TV.
Binge On – We’ve updated the player view so when customers are watching an on-demand title, the app will automatically go back to the franchise page of the show they watched.
