Frndly TV Officially Rolls Out its New App with an Updated Home Screen to More Devices





Back in January, Cord Cutters News broke the news that Frndly TV was launching a new app with a dedicated home screen. Now, Frndly TV has officially announced this new app and its availability on multiple streaming players.

The update no longer defaults to the guide but instead to a screen that looks a lot like the movie and TV shows tab. With this, you will find a collection of recommended live and on-demand programs.

You can still jump to the guide if you want, but Frndly TV no longer defaults to the guide when you first launch it.

Here is what the new home screen looks like:
