With Google Play Movies & TV, you can enjoy the latest movie releases or catch up on television shows the day after they air—whether you’re watching on your mobile, your laptop, or your TV. Starting this week, Play Movies & TV is getting even better when you’re in your living room, with a redesigned experience on our Roku channel.
Here’s what’s new:
- Simpler navigation: The new navigation bar on the left side of your screen helps you quickly switch between pages and access your favorites easily—no more continuously scrolling all the way back to the top.
- Dedicated TV page: For TV lovers, you now have a page for just TV—and nothing else. Find the latest shows within a day of airing on television, or dive straight into an episode with a Watch Next row dedicated to TV content.
- Richer genre browsing: You can now find deeper recommendations on our genre page. For instance, for “Comedy,” you can choose to filter to just movies, and see individual collections for new comedy releases, top-rated comedies, Oscar-nominated comedies and more.
- A modern look: The entire experience has been redesigned to put the focus on content above all else.
As always, everything you buy on Google Play Movies & TV on Roku is available to share with the ones you love using Play Family Library and available to watch on Android, iOS, the web, Android TV and supported Smart TVs. We hope this new look makes it easier for you to browse, watch and enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows on your Roku device, so keep an eye out for it as it rolls out over the next few days.
