Faithlife TV on the Apple TV is not as good of an experience as it is on iOS. There is no recently watched section and I am not able to resume viewing on any of my videos. Can we expect an update at some point that will get the Apple TV app up to speed?

I have an older AppleTV and so don't have access to the app on AppleTV so I just use AirPlay from my iPhone. Interesting that the apps are not the same, I would have thought AppleTV OS was same base code as iOS, just a different interface. 

I agree though this needs to be looked at Aaron.

We do plan to bring the Apple TV (4th gen) experience up to parity with our other players. Our development team on TV is small, so this will take some time.

Aaron,

We deployed a change for Apple TV that shows Recently Watched as the first section and should refresh after watching a video and returning to the home screen.  We are still need to work on resume and showing progress indicators.

Those mobile ed thumbnails are too small, can't see them well. Any way to make them bigger or have better information so the walking thicker on the bottom can be read or something.

Also, can we have the abilities to have sections like "recently watched", "watch later"

Oh ... and 1 more.. Can I request "dark background" please.

Thank you

Mike, Recently Watched is available now for Apple TV. We created cases to get landscape images for the Mobile Ed courses and Dark mode.
