Common Questions

What's the point of this?

We all love news. Some love it more than others. Sometimes news content does not mix well into our main libraries.

The News Section gives you a specific destination for all of your news. Find some news to watch faster, a program you recorded faster, or even browse what news programs might be on later in the day.

Enabling the News Section removes this content from the regular browsing experience, putting it in an easier to find section, and cleaning your library at the same time.

How does this work?

Channels uses the metadata of your content and your guide data to include News content directly into the News Section.

You can learn more about this in our support article.

Can I have content show in the News Section and the Main Library?

No. When you enable the News Section, it makes all of your news content available in the section while hiding it from the main library.

News on live TV will still be available from the Guide and On Now. The News Section is just an additional way to find currently airing news programs.
