New Features

Recent List (Previous Channel)
New for version 1.1 is the Recent List which gives you quick access to all the live, recorded, on demand or replay TV shows and movies you've been watching. This was a highly requested feature and we're really happy we've been able to add this so quickly. Recent List allows you to quickly navigate to a channel without having to go back to the guide.

Improved Recordings Discovery
On the Shows page, recordings are organized into groups by Series.

See All - Featured Rows
On Shows and Movies pages, there is now a link at the end of each row to See All. This will take you to a new page of all items that match the row. For example, at the end of the Action row on the Movies page, there is a link to See All which will take you to a new page with all Action Movies.

Series Recording - Multiple Improvements
When setting a series recording for a series that plays on multiple channels (like CSI Miami or Friends), you will now be able to select which networks you would like to record from. Also, we've added the ability to set a series recording directly form a series page. Previously, you could only set a series recording from an individual episode.

Help Menu - App Version
The help menu now lists the current version of the app.

Record Dialogue
Made it easier to understand how to set Cloud DVR to record single episode vs. all episodes.
