For those who don't know - this is just changes made to the Exploras' CU.


IMO:

Changing the name of the "Other Shows" section to "Shows" makes sense.

I like the new "Channels" section, but it's nowhere near as good as a user defined "Favourites" section (with just the content we want) would be.

The unseen-New-episodes info on the right of the series related entries has a flaw - if it involves CU+ then the info is only accurate when the episode(s) is downloaded, if seen and then deleted it will be counted as unwatched again. Particularly confusing with something like Game Of Thrones which has a mix of CU and CU+ for the older episodes.
How to fix? Not something I'm going to discuss as the existing interface design doesn't allow for a simple answer and frankly MC don't seem interested enough in our CU suggestions.

Has there been an announcement about the new software?

I quite like the channels sections - definitely makes my life easier.

Just the odd mention, this thread sums it up so far: Unknown Primary Explora Update

Suggestion for the "Channels" section, which I think may go far in helping all of us with further narrowing down of the CU lists;

Have two different "M-Net" tabs.
Perhaps something like these - "M-Net family" and "M-Net adult"

The program picture when you press i on a playing cu title. I'm sure there was never a picture there before. Or at least not in the left

All they need to do is add another sorting option based on Expiry Date with items expiring 1st being shown 1st.
