1. Support for changing the channel with the channel up/down button on remote control
2. Support for the CC button on remote3. Scrolling to the currently playing channel when the channel selector in the player is opened (down click while watching)
4. Current time indicator line in the Guide
5. Improvements to reduce buffering on certain channels
6. Lots of other bug fixes

Additional updates and bug fixes will be forthcoming for Android / Google TV soon, as well as for Fire TV.

Thanks, everyone.

If you are a Fubo live TV subscriber, you may notice a new user interface rolling out. Fubo has confirmed to Cord Cutters News that they have started to test a re-design of their apps on the Fire TV and Android TV devices that will include a new user interface they call their global “Unified Platform (UP).”

This new Fubo user interface will be a re-build and re-designed app across TV, mobile, and web. Already a handful of users have been invited into a betta to test out the new app this week. Now Fubo has announced the new user interface is now live on Android TV and some Fire TV devices.

The big change is the main menu has moved from the top of the screen to the left side, making it easier, according to Fubo, to quickly get to what you want.

You will also find a new My Stuff area with new options to quickly find what you want, including:

  • Recordings: Everything you’ve recorded on Cloud DVR
  • Watchlist: Shows or movies you’ve added to your favorites
  • Continue Watching: Recorded or on-demand programming you started but didn’t finish
