Due to the low contrast of the grey text color against the background image color, it becomes difficult to distinguish parts of the unit titles.

But wait there's more!

  1. Font on ATV is way too small (the one under the episodes)
  2. Browsing episodes is cumbersome (ex:Mike Heiser's videos)
  3. Cannot resume the video from where we left off.
  4. Cannot browse based on category, we are forced to scroll down infinitely.

I'm on ATV also

Poor/low contrast is still an issue for Mobile Ed courses on Apple TV.

Can anything be done to make the unit titles easier to read? Thanks!

Do you run your Apple TV with Dark mode enabled?  Have you possibly changed the Accessibility under Settings -> General?

I get something with more contrast for the section header text than what you are seeing and have not figured out how to reproduce it.

Have you possibly changed the Accessibility under Settings -> General?

We have a task on our list to go through and add better Dark mode support.

Yes, but I've disabled it as a workaround for now, and the unit title contrast has improved. Thanks!

No, accessibility settings are all set to default values.

That would be appreciated, Jeff, as Light mode is too bright in the evening.

Thanks again!
